FM contract with Eddie Stobart mobilised

Indepth Managed Services has been appointed to provide cleaning services for transport and logistics giant, Eddie Stobart. Indepth is servicing Eddie Stobart's purpose-built service support centre in Appleton, Warrington, providing daily cleaning services. The centre boasts a unique design, distinguished by the clever use of fitted-out shipping containers as interior office and training spaces.

While the service support centre was being designed, Indepth conducted a cleaning survey in order to submit a detailed professional proposal to meet the exacting needs of the Eddie Stobart team.

Julie Burdon, facilities manager at Eddie Stobart, said: “We are very happy with the managed service that Indepth provides. They fully understand the importance of our site standards - particularly with the unique nature of the service support centre's interior design - and the cleaning survey they conducted during the design phase allowed them to meet our high standards from day one.”

The Indepth team encounters significant challenges with the cleaning contract due to the unique nature of the building's interior design. It is required to clean building spaces that mimic vehicle and truck interiors. As well as having training areas made up of shipping containers, the reception desk is a repurposed cab in Eddie Stobart livery and there is a Volvo cab split in two in the main area. There is also an exhibit on site consisting of a number of Stobart trucks, from an original model dated from 1974 to a modern day truck.

Chris Stewart from Indepth Managed Services said: “Acquiring a prestigious locally-based client like Eddie Stobart is a positive achievement for our team. It is further enhanced by the quality of the professional relationship between our organisations. I am confident that the Indepth team will continue to deliver the high standard of service that Eddie Stobart and our national clients have come to expect from us.”
