Facilities management provider Servest Group has increased the number of stores it services for out-of-town fashion and homeware retailer Matalan.
Servest started working with Matalan in 2012, cleaning 24 stores in the London region. Under the new three-year, which started in 2013, Servest provides daily store cleaning to an additional 57 sites in the south and south-west including Luton, Chelmsford, Harlow, Bristol and Plymouth.
Approximately 180 Servest staff will perform daily cleaning to the 80 stores.
Matalan, which sells women’s, men’s and children’s fashion and homeware, was established in Preston in 1985 by John Hargreaves. The organisation has its headquarters and distribution centre in Skelmersdale, and boasts more than 200 stores, a total 5 million sq ft.
“I am delighted that Matalan has expanded our relationship,” said Sean Fisher, Managing Director of Cleaning. “It is testament to our focus on exceeding our customers’ expectations through the delivery of service excellence.”
