Our Story

A National Business with Northern Roots

CMS was established in the North East of England in 2000 by Neil and Nic Smith, both experienced engineers.  Neil trained as a marine engineer working off-shore, and after university in Sheffield Nic went through the Mars Graduate Program and managed one of their largest production facilities.

We are a family owned business, our HQ and our heart is still in the North East but we have engineering hubs across the UK.

The visionary brothers saw an opportunity to develop the company beyond its Northern heartlands and into a nationwide business, delivering a fantastic service throughout the country.

They invested significantly throughout the business, in senior management appointments, back office support, IT infrastructure, the HQ premises and most importantly a nationwide network of directly employed engineers.

This has allowed CMS to win significant contracts from large national businesses who appreciate having a single point of contact when it comes to the operation and compliance of their diverse property portfolios.
