New ABM Industries Website Garners Award at Annual Business Communications Competition.

NEW YORK -- ABM Industries Incorporated (NYSE:ABM) has received recognition for its recently-launched corporate website, winning a Golden Flame Award from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). ABM Industries, which operates through its subsidiaries, is the leading provider of facility services in the United States.

ABM's new website (www.abm.com), launched in April, won a Bronze in the Overall Effort - Digital Category, at the IABC Atlanta Chapter Golden Flame Awards competition. The annual Golden Flame Awards - which recognize excellence in communications in categories including print media, electronic media, graphics communications and media relations - were presented at the Atlanta chapter's annual awards banquet in October.

ABM's award-winning website includes enhanced graphics and navigability, an expanded set of tools for investors, and detailed information about ABM's business subsidiaries and capabilities, to assist current and prospective clients in learning more about the Company. The site also includes an office locator search tool to make it easier for clients to find ABM locations within specific geographic areas around the country. The new ABM.com incorporates a careers search tool to assist the Company in recruiting new talent, while providing existing employees with a means of locating new career opportunities within ABM. The website also incorporates Microsoft SharePoint[R] technology.

Since its launch in April, site visits to www.abm.com have increased by 500 percent.

Said Cary Bainbridge, ABM Director, Marketing Services: "This award is a particularly coveted one, making the competition for it at IABC fierce every year. This year was no different. ABM was up against several Fortune 500 companies, so winning a Bronze serves as fitting recognition for the members of our marketing team, who delivered an outstanding final product under significant time pressures and on a very tight budget. They did an outstanding job. The award also reflects our early success in making ABM.com a strong and effective resource for our many current and prospective clients, investors and employees."
