First quarter new business gains for Regent Samsic reveal the diversity of the company's experience in the UK cleaning and security sectors, both individually and combined.
New sites on the company's books include one of Europe's leading centres for the contemporary arts. At the heart of Bristol's harbour side, the Arnolfini houses exhibitions, art galleries, live art, music and dance events, poetry and book readings, talks, lectures and cinema.
Bush House, a former warehouse on the city waterfront first occupied by the theatre in 1975, was refurbished and redeveloped in 1989 and 2005. It reached a new audience in April 2010 when it was chosen to host one of the three General Election Debates.
Regent, which has extensive experience of leisure and related public space cleaning, is also cleaning the centre's specialist art bookshop and café bar.
Bristol's Porcelanosa showroom is one of 21 similar premises nationwide being cleaned by Regent since the Spanish tiles-to-furniture giant appointed the contractor in March this year to ensure its UK showrooms reflect the company's top quality brand positioning. Regent wins the business on the back of multiple retail and commercial site expertise.
The cleaning division has retained its contract with Wiltshire Fire and Rescue and added Avon Fire and Rescue to its roster, while Regent Cleaning and Regent Security have also won a contract to supply a bundled solution for Eaton Ltd. The US-based company supplies automotive, vehicle and engine manufacturer with high-quality parts, systems and services.
"It's very promising to find market perception of our strengths translating into business development in a challenging economy and to see that we clearly can bring added value in the integration of our service offers," said Regent Samsic joint managing director, John Critchell.
