FM provider Engie has won a multimillion-pound, five-year global integrated facilities management and production maintenance services frame contract with rail technology firm Bombardier Transportation.
Engie will deliver integrated facilities management, production maintenance and project services.
The contract, valued at about 250 million (about £222m), foresees that all facilities management, building maintenance and production maintenance as well as cleaning, security, catering, reception, helpdesk and grounds maintenance services for various Bombardier Transportation facilities will be managed by Engie.
Engie will also deliver capital expenditure projects and energy performance solutions across Bombardier Transportation's industrial facilities.
The services are to be delivered to a mixed portfolio of existing and new building types, including manufacturing environments. Implementation will take place in phases, starting in July 2018.
Engie's International FM (EIFM) team will manage the contract centrally, with local delivery through its national services entities. Service delivery will start immediately after the execution of the local service agreements.
Engie will also use its smart workplace technology to support service delivery and provide clear, up-to-date management information.
Jim Vounassis, chief operating officer, Bombardier Transportation, said: "Engie will help Bombardier Transportation to better focus on its core activities, while further increasing efficiencies, as we continue to drive our transformation towards our 2020 goals. Engie's strengths in energy and services, combined with the ability to provide solutions across our global facilities, will help us address our business challenges while maintaining a high-quality working environment for our people and exploring new combined business opportunities."
Globally, Engie provides FM and associated services to the international workplace portfolios of a growing number of industrial and commercial customers.
