Inviron wins GKN Aerospace FM contract

24 September 2009

Inviron has been appointed by GKN Aerospace to maintain its recently purchased manufacturing facility in Filton, Bristol.

A dedicated on-site team, including engineers, administration staff and a contract manager, will be responsible for the planned and reactive maintenance of a variety of systems, such as air conditioning, heating and lighting, across the 74,000m2 site. This facility was previously part of the existing Airbus site, where Inviron has been providing a dedicated FM service for a number of years. In addition, GKN is investing at nearby Severn Beach adding a further 28,000sq m.

Tom McGuinness, general manager of Inviron’s National Facilities Management business, said: “We’re delighted to have won this contract. We already have a good knowledge of the Filton site, so GKN Aerospace can be assured that our new team will provide a first-class service.”

This purchase is also good news for Bristol’s economy, as GKN Aerospace has committed itself to investing a further £150m over the next few years, in order to make the new facility a centre of excellence in composite wing technology.

Martin Dodge, Head of Estates from GKN Aerospace commented “GKN Aerospace is a global engineering company, supplying leading technology to the aerospace and automotive sectors. The acquisition of Filton is of strategic significance for us as we grow the business over the next few years. Our appointment of Inviron is based on a demonstration of technical excellence, competitiveness and, most importantly, an ability to understand and share our vision to make Filton a world-class tier-one supplier to the aerospace industry.”
