ESS, part of the Compass Group, has won a soft FM contract to provide services at HMNB Clyde, the Royal Navy’s main presence in Scotland.
Under the five-year contract, ESS – the defence, government services, offshore and remote sector of Compass Group UK & Ireland – will deliver catering, retail, leisure, waste, cleaning, and laundry services.
The naval base is home to the core of the Submarine Service, including the nation’s nuclear deterrent. Around 350 employees will transfer to the ESS workforce.
The Future Maritime Support Programme contract will be delivered by ESS Defence, which supports over 250 military establishments across the UK, from Cornwall to the north of Scotland.
Mark Webster, managing director, ESS Defence, Government Services, Offshore & Remote, said: “We will deliver a tailored, high quality food and support services solution for thousands of military personnel, civil servants and the wider defence community on site.”
