Shopping centre FM specialist The Westgrove Group has been awarded new contracts by retail clients in Kent and the West Midlands.
Following a competitive tender process, Westgrove secured cleaning and security works at Broadway Shopping Centre, managed by property specialist Workman. The centre, in the heart of Bexleyheath, spans 519,700 square feet and houses 60 stores. The provider will carry the same services at Ryemarket Shopping Centre in Stourbridge, which is managed by Orbit Property Management Ltd and hosts 30 retail stores.
These wins follow recent contract awards with The Piazza Centre in Huddersfield, The Arc in Bury St Edmunds and Novelis Recycling in Warrington as well as a contract extension with The Arcades Shopping Centre in Ashton Under Lyne, all adding over £2 million worth of new business.
Claire Mckinley Smith, managing director at Westgrove Group, said “It’s a pleasure to welcome new colleagues into our team. We pride ourselves on the quality of our customer service and we’ll be supporting our new colleagues with training and development opportunities.”
Rai Holdstock, centre manager at Broadway Shopping Centre, said Westgrove Group was chosen “due to their commitment to rewarding their colleagues and demonstrable added value to the scheme at no extra cost”.
Warrington-based Westgrove provides security, cleaning, maintenance and customer service at shopping centres and mixed-use destinations, corporate offices, business parks, manufacturing and airports throughout the UK. The company expanded in 2020 to add hard services to the provision of its soft services.
