Recipharm has appointed AM Services Group to provide manned guarding services for another three years in Ashton-under-Lyne, as well as awarding the firm an additional contract for cleaning.
AM Services Group began security operations at Recipharm's site in 2016 and the client listed 'teamwork', 'trust' and 'quality' when deciding to continue the relationship.
Recipharm in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, is one of the global company's 'solid dose' facilities, with extensive experience in manufacturing and packaging tablets and capsules and over 50 years' experience as a contract manufacturer.
More than 115 different product codes are currently managed at the site, including solid dose, semi-solids and liquids. Sex hormone products are also manufactured in a purpose-built part of the facility with separate HVAC.
Over the past two years, AM Services Group staff have also undertaken spill kit training; the guards have been given responsibility for reporting maintenance issues and the company's highly trained specialist cleaning team has carried out ad hoc jet washing services for Recipharm.
Lesley Adams, personal assistant at Recipharm, said: "They were very quick to understand our specific needs and proactive in finding the right type of person to work for us. The staff are very good at what they do, and will use their time effectively so that we get the best possible service and maximise the value of the contract."
AM Services Group's managing director Adrian Cresswell said: "This partnership has flourished, thanks to our knowledge and expertise in their sector and the high calibre of our staff."
