Aramark takes off with Airbus win

19 April 2013

Aramark has scooped a contract to provide food service to international aircraft manufacturer Airbus across its UK sites at Filton, near Bristol and Broughton, near Chester

The five-year contract is worth around £25m. Aramark will take over in late spring from the incumbent, Sodexo.

Aramark will introduce initiatives including an increased number of food and drink outlets, refurbished dining areas, a new concierge service and longer opening hours. Each is aimed at matching the working patterns of Airbus’ diverse workforce, which ranges from manufacturers through to engineers and office-based employees.

It will also design and operate a new main restaurant at the Filton campus in a new flagship building – Barnwell House – currently under construction and due to open in autumn 2013. Barnwell House will consolidate the site’s engineering, design, customer support and other employees into one highly efficient office.

Aramark is already a food service partner to Airbus in Germany and Spain.

Tony Heddon, Aramark's UK Business Development Director, said: “It is a privilege to be working with such a high-profile company. We’ve won this business by ensuring that a fresh, adaptable and innovative service is developed to keep Airbus staff motivated, delighted and productive.”

In the UK, Airbus employs over 4,000 people at Filton and more than 6,000 at Broughton.

Core activities at Filton include design, engineering and support for Airbus wings, fuel systems and landing gear integration. Teams also work on systems, structures, and aerodynamics research, development and test facilities.

At Broughton – where such aviation classics as De Havilland’s Comet and Mosquito were produced during its history – employees assemble the wings for all Airbus civil aircraft, including the new A350 XWB.
