OCS Helps Eurostar to Shine

10 November 2011

Eurostar, the high-speed passenger service linking the UK and mainland Europe, has awarded OCS a contract to provide cleaning services for their trains at St Pancras International and their Temple Mills depot in Leyton, East London.

Eddie Ratcliffe, OCS Operations Director, commented: “We are delighted to have won this contract at a key time for Eurostar. The high-speed passenger rail service provider is looking to expand its operations with new routes and destinations across Europe. We intend to support their clear focus on providing a quality experience for the passenger with a first-class cleaning service.”

Paula Longuehaye, Cleaning Contracts Manager for Eurostar, commented: “We have recently announced a £700 million capital investment in our fleet, which includes purchasing 10 new trainsets and completing the overhaul and refurbishment of our existing fleet. In a world of on-rail competition having modern and smart trainsets will be key to our success and OCS’s experience and expertise make them the perfect partner to help us deliver this.”
Over 100 staff will provide cleaning services across the two sites, which include 26 turnaround cleans a day at St Pancras International and between four and twelve service cleans each night at the Leyton depot.

OCS has enjoyed an 8 year relationship with Eurostar, providing a range of services at both Waterloo and St Pancras International as well as at the Temple Mills depot.
