Full steam ahead for MITIE

MITIE has won a cleaning contract with First Great Western (FGW) to clean trains and stations. The new cleaning contract covers 109 train stations across the country from Paddington in London to Penzance in Cornwall.

The three-year cleaning contract, with a total value of £12.6 million, started in late April 2010 with approximately 300 people transferring to MITIE. The contract consists of four lots, West, Central and East regions for FGW and will mainly revolve around train and station cleaning while Paddington and Old Oak Common in London will predominantly deliver train cleaning.

Johan Venter, managing director of MITIE's transport cleaning business, said: "We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious company as First Great Western. MITIE has a great track record of working with blue chip organisations in the transport sector and we regard this as a vote of confidence in our abilities. We are looking forward to developing a long-term partnership with First Great Western."
