Leeds-based Penguin FM has been awarded a nationwide contract to deliver total facilities management at bathroom furniture and plumbing specialist Easy Bathrooms.
Under the partnership, which started this month, Penguin’s team will manage all assets within Easy Bathroom’s estate – including its Birstall head office and distribution centre and 70 showrooms across the UK.
Mike Robinson, Penguin FM’s sales director, said the company would be working with Easy Bathrooms to support the chain’s expansion throughout the UK. “Their senior management team have embraced our use of technology and our ability to track the total life cycle of all their assets.”
“Our teams are responsible for all building compliance, planned preventative and reactive maintenance across the Easy Bathrooms estate; each site will use the latest online CAFM system, alongside NFC technology to ensure they remain operational and compliant. They will also be supported with a 24-hour help desk.”
Laura Green, Easy Bathrooms’ finance director, said:“We value Penguin’s commitment to helping Easy Bathrooms remain as efficient as possible and make our processes so simple for our store teams. At a time when we’re expanding and opening an average of two new UK showrooms per month, this provides us with peace of mind that our expanding portfolio is being well looked after.”
