Cummins Facility Services Announces CIMS Certification Green Building with Honors

Cummins Facility Services named 128th CIMS-GB Certified Company out of 55,000 in the U.S.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Cummins Facility Services ( is pleased to announce the successful certification of the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) Certification Green Building with Honors.  The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association ISSA identifies companies within the cleaning industry that meet the following standards: Quality Systems, Service Delivery, Human Resources, Health, Safety, and Environmental Stewardship, and Management Commitment.  


Cummins Facility Services is an Ohio-based company that provides facility services in Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Iowa, Arkansas and Mexico. Although Cummins Facility Services has humble beginnings as a small business that operated out of the home of Ron and Myra Cummins, it has made its mark in the building service industry as a 100 percent Women Owned Business (WBE).  It is now owned by Ron and Myra's daughter, Jill Frey, and has over 500 employees nationwide.

Being awarded the CIMS Green Building with Honors was no easy task. In order to receive this certification, Cummins Facility Services had to complete an internal audit of our standards, training and policies, submit all documentation to the ISSA and undergo a third party audit. During the audit, the auditor interviewed employees, managers and customers to ensure that Cummins Facility Services has actually done all that we've promised to do. "The CIMS certification process has taken our company to new levels. The front line employees and the Vice President all have the same goals, mission and vision. Our employees are the best in the industry," explains Jill Frey, Cummins Facility Services President. "We have strengthened our documented processes and procedures in regards to training, executive training and quality control to a standardized process."

Quality, customer-focused organizations and helping customers achieve points under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED for Existing Buildings are among the top benefits of working with a contractor that is CIMS GB Certified.

In an industry where many businesses are here one day and gone the next, Cummins Facility Services' customers can rest assured that we are committed to a higher standard and will continue to strive for excellence no matter the economic situation at hand.  With that, there is only one question left to ask: 

What has your cleaning contractor done for you?
