More power to Eurest at National Grid

25 February 2009

National Grid has announced that Eurest Services has not only retained its catering contract across twelve UK sites, but that they have also won the support services business.

The contract is worth c £63m over a five year period and follows a competitive bid process where six other companies were short listed. The new contract encompasses up to 579 sites including:catering on 13 sites, security services on 38, cleaning on 151, portering on 18, reception services on 22, vending services on 293, and key holding services on 290.

This contract represents the largest contract win since the launch of Eurest Services in November 2008, a move that aims to capitalise on the opportunities for offering a wider range of FM services to an already loyal customer base. Eurest Services has developed a portfolio of additional services, adding value by bundling multi-services to reduce cost, maximise synergies and implement standardisation across client estates.

Eurest Services provides an innovative and flexible solution to clients, who more than ever, are realising the benefits of outsourcing non-core activities to specialists, for whom these activities are their core business.

Adrian Lawton, Head of Property Management, National Grid, said “Throughout the tender process the Eurest Services bid team consistently demonstrated a “can do” approach to everything that we asked for. In this particular sector, whilst price is clearly important, it is more about feeling confident that the services can actually be delivered. The professional approach and eagerness to understand our business drivers as well as the obvious commercial elements made the choice obvious. I look forward to a successful partnership that will benefit both organisations. “

Graham Sims, Managing Director of Eurest Services said: “We are delighted by this win that demonstrates our ability to manage complex multi-site support services. We understand that our clients are facing a real challenge. Costs are under more scrutiny than ever before, yet employees will continue to demand high standards of food and service in the workplace. Eurest Services is uniquely placed and clients trust us to deliver more”.
