Facilities management provider Servest Group has won a £9.1 million cleaning contract with the London Borough of Sutton. The seven-year contract with a three-year extension option is for daily and specialist cleaning of all council offices and selected schools in the borough. It starts in April 2014.
Servest has been working in partnership with Sutton since 1995. Following the council's decision to rationalise service delivery to a sole supplier, Servest took part in a robust tender process, which resulted in Sutton awarding the borough-wide contract for cleaning to Servest.
Rob Legge, Servest's chief executive officer UK and Europe, said: “We have been delivering cleaning services to Sutton since 1995 and are delighted to be able to extend our partnership for at least another seven years. Being awarded the full cleaning contract is a real vote of confidence in our impressive track record and strong local management. We have delivered on all of our promises and will continue to do so. The client trusts that we can deliver on quality and on price, and is impressed with our cutting-edge products and processes and our industry-leading staff training programmes.”
Gerald Almeroth, strategic director of resources at Sutton Council, said: “We are pleased to be able to continue our long-standing relationship with Servest and look forward to them continuing to deliver clean, safe environments for all users of our buildings.”
