Norse has created a 10-year joint venture agreement with Newport County Council to deliver facilities services.
Under the £7.3 million-a-year agreement, the joint venture Newport Norse will carry out cleaning and facilities management, including planned and responsive building maintenance, portering, management of the Newport Indoor Market, and strategic property services for the estates team, design team and energy management.
Around 200 staff will be transferring into the new joint venture company.
In April a joint venture between Norse Commercial Services and Medway Council in Kent was formed to carry out grounds maintenance at amenity, recreational, sports and urban grounds sites.
