In January, BOSS Facility Services, Inc celebrates its 20th anniversary. For 20 years BOSS has been providing world class service and helping their clients achieve both their short- and long-term goals. BOSS was founded in 2001 with a single goal of providing “Superior Service” to several vertical markets such as retail, financial, convenience stores, restaurants, and healthcare facilities. BOSS represents hundreds of years of experience that goes back 3 generations.
Founded in 2001 by brother and sister Keith and Kerri Keingstein they knew there was a need for a multi vertical centric outsourcing model. Keith recalls when he founded the company in 2001, he had trouble attracting clients. He was just 26 years old and few companies were willing to take a chance on a newcomer. Instead of giving up, he enlisted the help of the people he knew best: his family. He brought in Bob, his father, and an HVAC/R expert; Kerri, his sister, who brought experience from the lighting and security industries and an acute mind for business; and Kevin, his brother, who took the reins in the plumbing and reoccurring services departments. One client became a few clients, and eventually, the roster began filling up as the company established a reputation as a service-oriented facility management provider.
Our mission since inception has been to provide innovative, best of class superior service at the right price for our clients while we provide an engaging environment that fosters both individual and team growth for our employees.
The firm has seen tremendous growth over the last 20 years. Starting in the MEP space with just 2 employees to quickly expanding its service offerings to include project management, janitorial, locksmith, general maintenance, rollouts, fixturing and refreshes. Keith Keingstein, CEO and principal “the company has experienced year over year growth since inception and looks to continue on that track for the next 20 years. Considering some of the difficult hurdles we’ve endured during this timeframe such as the financial collapse, housing collapse, multiple presidents, changes in technology, overall retail landscape and now a pandemic, it reaffirms our success and need in the market”. “Our continued success is a true testament to our people, process, and performance. “
BOSS moved its headquarters in September of 2019 to allow for its continued growth and is committed more than ever to expanding the firms reach. Unfortunately, earlier this year, one of the founding members of BOSS Bob Keingstein passed away after his short bout with cancer. Bob was a prominent figure in the HVAC community and an essential part in BOSS’ success. Bob was also a huge advocate of ACCA and would often tribute a lot of his management success to the association’s programs. From management training to his beloved mixed group, he adored his interactions on both a professional and personal level.
BOSS and all its associates would like to thank their clients for the trust they have given to allow BOSS to meet and exceed their needs daily for the last two decades. We would encourage any new potential clients and partners to reach out to us so that we can forge new relationships delivering on both your short- and long-term goals.
