Mitie has secured a two-year extension to its engineering and FM contracts for Groupe PSA’s Luton and Coventry sites, building on a 10-year relationship with the vehicle manufacturer.
The extension adds cleaning and waste management services to those the company already delivers at Groupe PSA’s sites in Luton, Toddington and Ellesmere Port.
Groupe PSA is Europe’s second-largest car manufacturer – producing the Peugeot, Citroën, DS Automobiles and Vauxhall brands.
The contract is worth £5.2 million over two years, with the option to extend for another two years.
Under this extension, Mitie will carry on engineering, maintenance and repair services at Groupe PSA’s production plants, parts distribution centre and offices in Luton, as well as its office building in Coventry. The services are essential to support the factory’s production schedule and to minimise manufacturing downtime.
It addition, the company will supply cleaning and waste management services at the Luton and Toddington sites, as well as waste management services at the factory and office building in Ellesmere Port, where Groupe PSA makes the Vauxhall Astra. These additions to the deal make Mitie the first provider from which Groupe PSA has procured all three services.
At the Luton, Toddington and Ellesmere Port sites Mitie will use waste bin monitoring technology to gather data on the volume of waste collected and on how different waste bin locations are used. This insight will inform recommendations to improve waste collection and segregation, increasing recycling rates, thereby helping to minimise Groupe PSA’s environmental impact.
Carlo Alloni, managing director of technical services and integrated facilities management at Mitie, said: “It’s a privilege to support one of Britain’s leading vehicle manufacturers. Having enjoyed a decade-long working relationship with Groupe PSA, it’s a pleasure to announce that we will be extending this partnership for a further two years, while also expanding our roster of services at the Luton, Toddington and Ellesmere Port sites.”
