Cleaning and soft services provider Facilicom UK & Ireland has secured a new one-year contract with the Open University (OU).
It follows a decade-long relationship with the supported public learning and research body – the UK's largest academic institution.
Facilicom started working at OU’s Nottingham site, delivering hygiene and window cleaning services and has since won contracts with seven additional regional sites including the OU’s headquarters in Milton Keynes and sites in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. All these sites are included in the contract extension. About 60 company operatives work at the headquarters, with 25 more working across the regional sites.
The company said the contract extension was awarded owing to its outstanding service delivery over the past decade and, in recent months, its rapid response to Covid-19 hygiene measures across all sites.
Jan-Hein Hemke, managing director of Facilicom, said: “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.”
