Facilicom secures contract extension with The Open University
Cleaning and soft services provider, Facilicom UK & Ireland, has secured a new, one-year contract with The Open University (OU). This follows a decade-long relationship with the supported open learning and research experts.
The cleaning specialist began working at OU's Nottingham site over 10 years ago, delivering hygiene and window cleaning services.
Facilicom has since won contracts, over a number of years, with seven additional regional sites. This includes its headquarters in Milton Keynes, (pictured) and sites in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. All these sites are included in the contract extension. There are approximately 60 operatives working at the headquarters and 25 operatives working across the regional sites.
The contract extension was awarded due to Facilicom's outstanding service delivery over the past decade, and more recently, the company's rapid response to Covid-19 hygiene measures across all sites.
"We are delighted to be extending our contract with The Open University across multiple sites in the UK," says Jan-Hein Hemke, managing director of Facilicom. "We have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the organisation for many years now, and feel we have developed a real partnership approach to cleaning operations.
"This contract extension really is testament to the hard work and dedication of our teams across the country. They have consistently delivered the highest standards of cleaning, and more recently have adapted to the challenges that Covid-19 has brought, to ensure each campus is safe and hygienic. I would like to thank everyone involved in securing this relationship for another year, and we very much look forward to working with the teams at The Open University in the coming months."
