Regent Samsic has reported new business gains in both its cleaning and security operations for the third quarter of 2013.
Additions to the contractor's cleaning portfolio include St Paul's Girls' School in Birmingham and Myton School, Warwick; Mercedes-Benz Bristol; regional offices operated nationally by Provident Financial; and further wins within its Monmouthshire County Council contracts that take in the Abergavenny and Chepstow clusters. Coventry-based Regent Samsic has also enjoyed encouraging rates of contract retention over the past 12 months.
Regent Security's three-year contract to manage CCTV control for Hinckley town centre has been extended for a further five years while the cleaning division has retained Yorkshire County Cricket Club's ground at Headingley, Leeds, and Brooklands College.
Regent Cleaning has retained its sites for NHS Blood and Transplant in a further three-year contract, with possible extensions, covering cleaning, portering and handyman duties. The cleaning division has also retained its service to Birmingham Metropolitan College.
A bundled cleaning and security offer to Fosse Shopping Park, where Regent's services also include maintenance and park presentation, has also been retained and extended.
John Critchell, Regent Samsic's joint managing director, said: “If there's one thing better than winning new business, it's when an existing customer values what you do sufficiently to want to continue retaining your services. Our remit to providing value-added services wherever we work is, I believe, fundamental to Regent Samsic's steady growth rate and we look forward to announcing news of added service offers in the next quarter.”
