Twickenham based FM and cleaning company, Stadium Support Services, has won a competitive tender process to become Farnborough International Airshow’s principle cleaning partner until 2022. The contract will see the company deliver over 80,000 hours of cleaning services across the 770-acre site on behalf of the 1500 exhibitors set to take part in this aviation event, which attracts up to 200,000 people each year.
Neil Theuma, operations director at Farnborough International Ltd, said: “We have worked hard to deliver a great audience and participant experience at Farnborough, and the ecosystem of suppliers we align with is critical to that success. Stadium Support Services impressed throughout the whole tender process and not only showed a real understanding of our cleaning requirements today but shared our vision of the way in which we want the event to evolve in years to come. Our goal is to create one team working together for the success of the event as well as thinking differently about how we approach the site to deliver the best services for the exhibitors and public alike.”
Kevin Hudson, managing director of Stadium Support Services, said: “We are conscious of Farnborough International’s high customer service levels for the air show and our cleaning services will provide the right environment for the show’s exhibitors and visitors to operate in. We’re committed to using leading technology and processes to ensure that nothing is missed. We will be deploying tracking chips that will enable our cleaning operatives to scan and send back data to our help desk allowing us to monitor with real-time updates when areas have been inspected and cleaned. This visibility will enable us to adapt our resourcing model if required to ensure service levels are met and ensure that areas are cleaned systematically.”
