FBG Service Corporation, a commercial cleaning and facilities maintenance company, is celebrating its 60th year in business this month. Headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, the 100 percent employee-owned company delivers and manages services across the United States. With district offices in Colorado Springs, Colorado; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Quad Cities region of Iowa and Illinois, and Minnesota, employs approximately 1,300 people nationwide.

Wayne Simmonds founded the that would become FBG Service Corporation predecessor company, Floor Brite, in Omaha, Nebraska in the mid 1950s. FBG became incorporated in 1960. Wayne’s daughter, Terri Gogetap, currently serves as president and CEO. Simmonds passed away in June of 2019 at the age of 80.

“Employees have always been empowered to make the right decisions for our clients. My father wanted our teams to think of themselves as owners of the company. It was always his dream to share the company ownership with our employees,” said Gogetap.

In 1994 FBG awarded its first ESOP certificates to qualified employees.

FBG uses EPA registered disinfectants that are approved to kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 and apply the disinfectant through an Electrostatic Disinfection System (EDS).

“My dad would have been so proud of this amazing milestone. He loved this company and its employees so much,” said Gogetap.
