JLL Managed Services Retail Contract Award
ABM UK has been awarded a contract by JLL’s Managed Services UK team to provide services across a number of retail sites.
The multi-year contract will see the company provide cleaning with associated services and security services at six shopping centres: Castlepoint in Bournemouth, Cascades in Portsmouth, Old George in Salisbury, Kingsway in Newport, Castle Court in Caerphilly and the Mermaid in Cardiff.
The company will deploy approximately 120 team members to the contract, who will be supported by both site and regional management.
John McPherson, ABM UK managing director, comments: "We’re delighted with the win. This is our first contract with JLL’s Managed Services UK division which builds on the existing relationship we have with the broader JLL business.
"All the work we deliver will be in line with JLL’s impressive sustainability commitments which focus on the key pillars of wellbeing, community and reducing environmental impacts. Engaging and helping to develop the site teams will be the first steps we will take to care for the communities around these shopping centres."
Andrew Neeson, partner collaboration manager at JLL Managed Services UK, adds: "ABM UK’s extensive experience and operational approach together with the distinct customer-focussed training innovations they offer makes them a natural fit. We look forward to a successful partnership."
