Mitie has secured a new five-year integrated facilities management contract with Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK.
The contract will amalgamate many different outside contracts under one management structure and will include the provision of infrastructure maintenance, cleaning and grounds maintenance at the manufacturing plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire.
This is the first time Toyota has taken this approach to FM at any of its plants in Europe.
Mitie will be responsible for maintaining the infrastructure of site buildings including air handling, electrical and mechanical maintenance and will also repair metal stillages used to carry car parts to the production line.
Mitie will also provide grounds maintenance at the 150-hectare complex - including the plant's local nature reserve, which the company will be caring for alongside the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
The site sits within the Trent Valley, a landscape formerly rich in wetland habitats and a major migratory route for birds in England.
