The Co-operative shops with MITIE

07 January 2010

MITIE has announced a FM contract worth £20.4m per annum with The Co-operative Group. MITIE will be providing a range of cleaning services to all Co-operative food retail stores across the UK.

The three-year contract will see MITIE clean more than 2,500 stores and this includes 600 Somerfield stores that MITIE already looks after. MITIE also cleans the retailer’s major head offices across the country. In total over 3,000 people are transferring to MITIE’s business during the mobilisation process.
Before this move The Co-operative Group employed almost 25 regional cleaning contractors and specialist teams. Martin Totten, director of MITIE’s retail cleaning team said: “We are currently in the process of mobilising the contract for The Co-operative Group. Winning this national contract with one of the major retail food giants builds on MITIE’s reputation in the retail market and our ability to focus on national contracts.”
MITIE will be bringing considerable benefits to the table, including a large and efficient 24/7 helpdesk function based in its Bristol head office, its own free phone time and attendance system for accurate recording of all hours worked, a bespoke management information reporting tool using real-time information via PDAs and innovations in training and health and safety.
