LPM signs HSS Outsource agreement

In a key strategic move designed to further reduce costs and boost productivity, LPM Cleaning & Support Services has agreed a new partnership with HSS Hire’s Outsource service for the supply, management and maintenance of its Reintec cleaning equipment.

Underlining LPM Cleaning’s ongoing commitment to driving up service standards and reducing costly downtime, the HSS Outsource agreement offers cleaning equipment and a fully managed equipment programme. All cleaning machines will be regularly swapped out and substituted with newly serviced and PAT tested units and any equipment that breaks down is repaired or replaced within 24 hours rather than sending a service technician to site.

The agreement with HSS Outsource offers LPM all the advantages of equipment ownership with none of the costs associated with maintenance, depreciation, downtime and write-off. It is being utilised for all new contracts with a view to rolling it out across existing clients over the next six months.

Joe Read, sales & operations director at LPM Cleaning & Support Services, said: “We are delighted to be working with HSS Outsource and have every confidence that the partnership will have a positive effect on productivity by reducing costly downtime. It also frees up field managers to focus on further strengthening the service provided to our growing client base and managing the bottom line.”

As part of the agreement, HSS Outsource also implements equipment handover for LPM Cleaning operatives ensuring they possess the necessary skillset to conduct their duties efficiently and safely. The company also has access to a dedicated 24-hour HSS Outsource helpdesk.

Paul Lewis, HSS Outsource director, said: “At HSS, we’re focused on helping our customers to work safely, efficiently and cost-effectively. HSS Outsource is all about providing the best cleaning machines supported by an equipment management and maintenance programme that allows our customers to get on with what they need to without having to worry about their equipment requirements. They’ll have more time to spend with their own customers and will also see increased productivity, reduced costs and service level agreements.”
