100% of on-site electrical power is from a wind generated source. We believe in investing in future generations. Wind Energy is easy to harness and does not result in dependency and use of fossil fuels. Michigan has a large array of wind farms. We’ve chosen to tap right into those sources to lead the charge of a sustainable future.

I can honestly say that Facility Solutions was one of the most professional and responsive teams that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The KFC Packline project was a monumental task and the patience and willingness to bend over backwards to make our requests reality were truly above and beyond.

Facility Solutions is one of our best resources for the coordination and management of our planned capital maintenance programs. Their professionalism and structured approach to project management has been vital in allowing my team to successfully complete a larger volume of projects than we would ever be able to handle with our own internal resources.

I wanted to take the time to reach out to you and tell you what a FANTASTIC job Facility Solutions did with the Taco Bell Corporate Refresh project this year in 2015. This was a complex project dealing with multiple partners, multiple stores, time zones and a million changes.
I had the pleasure of working with Facility Solutions for four years. They were always great to work with. Professional, thorough, great follow up, always made sure all details were covered. I highly recommend FSI if you want the job done right.
