Wholly owned subsidiaries include ABM Janitorial, Ampco System Parking, ABM Engineering, ABM Security Services (known formerly as American Commercial Security Services), Security Services of America (SSA), Amtech Lighting, and ABM Facility Services.

Founded in 1909 by Morris Rosenberg as a one-man window washing business, they took the name American Building Maintenance in 1913. In 1927, they acquired Easterday Janitorial Supply Company. His sons took over after his death.
