Cushman & Wakefield has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Quality Solutions, Inc. (“QSI”), a top national facilities management firms specializing in on-demand facility maintenance and project management services through a national network of facilities contractors. The acquisition will expand Cushman & Wakefield’s facilities management capabilities and coverage across North American markets by leveraging QSI’s supply chain of 50,000+ qualified suppliers and 75+ facilities trades.

There is very real momentum and we’re just getting started.”
