Established in 1992 as JANCON in Shelbyville, Kentucky, Facilities Management Services, Inc. (FMS) received its name from Jerry Koloms who purchased the company in 1999. Seen as the "founding father" of FMS, Jerry hired the key people and established many client relationships that are the backbone of FMS' success today. In May of 2001, Jerry passed away and his son Scott Koloms was named President. Thanks in part to his teaching background, FMS placed an emphasis on the training and education of every company employee. Furthermore, every FMS team member made a commitment to maintain long-term relationships with clients through honest, open communication and hard work. Since 2001, FMS has grown every year. The company currently employs hundreds of team members in multiple states and cities. Services have grown to include the latest technologies in floor care and carpet care as well as general commercial cleaning. While FMS has added team members and clients, they haven't changed the way they do business. They know that their services really come down to one thing: Good People. Clean Buildings.
