TC extends Tesco contract

TC facilities management is now managing the cleaning, catering and security services in Tesco's Livingston and Widnes DCs. This builds upon the company's recent successes with Tesco Avonmouth DC and Middleborough DC.

These wins see TC facilities management deploy over 100 staff into each DC. Livingston, Tesco's largest operation in Europe, and Widnes DCs service over 620 Tesco stores, operating 365 days a year with over 2000 staff expecting a clean, catered and secure environment at all times.

Implementing these mobilisations will see over 250 staff transition from three other service providers which will be led by Steve Wengrow, divisional controller at TC facilities management. Keith French, strategic development director at TC facilities management, said: “We are delighted to enhance our Tesco relationship through the delivery of our best in class FM model. Tesco afforded us the original opportunity to trial a 'best in class' FM approach whereby TC works with our selected best in class service partners to deliver a memorable FM experience, everyday.”

Kevin Rooney, distribution centre manager for Tesco, said: “Tesco awarded this contract to TC facilities management based on what we have seen them deliver at Avonmouth and Middlesborough. Steve's passion, professionalism and commitment has given us complete confidence that he and his team have the ability to deliver a brilliant service at Livingston and Widnes, as they have demonstrated already.”
