• Recent years have seen the decentralisation of manufacturing facilities across Asia as companies seek to reduce costs, improve efficiency and spread risk.
  • However, the dispersal of manufacturing is creating numerous challenges related to the consistency of non-core production practices and processes, which are essential for compliance.
  • Failure to meet compliance standards can result in infractions, production recalls, fines and negative publicity that can damage a manufacturer’s brand, reputation and customer base.
  • Many manufacturers are therefore opting to implement a new model for the delivery of facilities management (FM) services by outsourcing to FM service providers.
  • This special report by CBRE Research tracks the rise of the industrial FM outsourcing industry in Asia Pacific; identifies the key challenges and bottlenecks; and explains the strategies adopted by leading providers.
