Facility, Industrial & Rental Services

Baird's Facility, Industrial & Rental Services ("FIR") practice group was founded in 2007 and has been an active and growing sector for the firm. With companies' increased focus on core operations and efficient capital deployment, there exists a substantial opportunity for high-quality outsourced service providers to continue consolidating the competitive landscape, access growth capital through the capital markets and build market-leading offerings in large national or multinational sub-verticals. Private equity and corporates alike are focused on these secular trends and opportunities.

Baird's Facility Services practice has extensive experience advising best-in-class companies across the facility services spectrum including:

  • Businesses focused on soft and hard services;
  • Those that provide single-, multiple-trade or fully integrated FM offerings with sophisticated technology platforms; and
  • Companies who service commercial, industrial, multifamily, residential, retail and other end markets.

Our Industrial Services practice advises companies serving all areas of the infrastructure market. Our expertise covers a broad universe of services including engineering, construction, design/build, environmental, maintenance and energy services.   

Baird's Rental Services practice works with companies whose service offering is asset intensive.  We cover a broad universe of business models from equipment rental to route-based service companies to plant-based offerings.  A hallmark of these clients is the combination of high profit margins with high capital expenditure needs. 

Deep relationships with relevant publicly-traded companies, private local/regional service providers and private equity-backed businesses provide Baird with current and relevant knowledge on the markets and an ability to provide the highest level of strategic insights to its clients.
