The facilities-management business owned by former Celtic FC director Willie Haughey and his wife Susan has been streamlining, selling several non-core operations to their respective management teams. City Facilities Management, which provides property maintenance services to Asda, is the firm’s largest business. Other customers such as Mitchells & Butlers and Belhaven reflect the Glasgow company’s roots as a supplier of refrigeration services to the pub trade, while its CBES arm recently attracted new clients, including Ladbrokes and Pendragon. Sales were £206.2m in 2005.
