WHR FM brewed up for Whitbread

26 August 2009

Environmental Biotech (EB) has formed a partnership with Whitbread Plc, to form WHR Facilities Management (WHR FM) to maintain Whitbread’s premises nationwide.

EB,the national hygiene cleansing service provider based in Maldon, Essex, has operatives working across the country servicing over 1,700 Whitbread outlets which includes Premier Inn Hotels, Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Table Table and Tay Barn restaurants and Costa Coffee.

The formation of WHR Facilities Management is the result of a partnership that began just over three years ago when Whitbred was seeking a consolidation of solution providers for the problem of fats, oils and greases (FOG). FOG is a by-product of commercial and domestic kitchens across the UK. They form solids that cause blockages and greatly affect the efficiency and workings of both pumping stations and treatment plants. The Environmental Biotech system introduces live bacteria into the drainage network that significantly help to keep the drains flowing clearly.

Tony Reddy, Group Maintenance Manager at Whitbread, explains: “At the time we had 6 regional contractors managing our drainage issues through a combination of reactive and planned maintenance. We met Environmental Biotech and they introduced us to their live bacteria solution. After a successful trial, their products and services were rolled out through our entire estate.”

WHR FM ensures continuous monitoring and maintenance of premises with technicians addressing a cross-section of maintenance issues nationally. The project is set to be in 3 phases, the first of which, the creation of the network of mobile technicians, has been successfully completed. Stages 2 and 3 will be completed within the next 12 months. Aziz Tejpar, Chief Executive of Environmental Biotech: “The ambition of Environmental Biotech, already a global entity, has been shown once again by the marriage of our services to the network of WHR’s outlets. We plan to develop the management of a range of facilities and are already working on a selection of services that we can add into the premises that will benefit all divisions of the WHR FM family.”
