Global FM provider Atalian Servest extends its total facilities management contract, worth £3.7m, with the Post Office for a further two years until 2021. The contract between Atalian Servest and the Post Office originally commenced in 2014 to provide waste and cleaning services with the goal of reducing both the cost and carbon footprint of the services.
The facilities management provider is now responsible for managing cleaning, catering, landscaping, pest control, gritting, window cleaning, waste management, feminine hygiene management, reception and security services across 162 sites.
This extension follows Atalian Servest and The Post Office winning a prestigious Premises and Facilities Management (PFM) award in 2018 for ‘Partners in cleaning’.
The Post Office has over 11,500 branches across the UK and offers over 170 different products and services including postal services, financial services, government services, broadband and home phone, foreign currency, travel insurance and Local Collect, Drop and Go mail services.
Daniel Dickson, CEO UK & Ireland, Atalian Servest said: “Since 2014, we have had a great collaborative relationship with the Post Office and together have implemented significant change. We are proud to be continuing that. Atalian Servest and The Post Office winning the 2018 PFM award was testament to the substantial achievements and aligned values of both companies. We remain committed to supporting the Post Office and are delighted to be continuing this partnership, further building on the great work that has already been achieved.”
