SBFM, one of the UK and Ireland’s leading and fastest growing soft FM service providers, has won a contract with Maersk for the delivery of cleaning, catering and security services for the integrated logistics company’s expanding inventory of warehouses.
The new framework agreement will initially see SBFM provide soft services for Maersk’s new distribution centres in Tamworth, Kettering and its newly built facility in Doncaster.
Maersk’s Doncaster facility is one the largest in the UK with more than 600,000 square feet of total space, 60 dock levellers, 20 metres of internal clearance height as well as several hundred parking spaces.
Working in partnership with Maersk, SBFM will support the integrated logistics provider’s expansion plans by delivering services for a growing portfolio of sites, with Maersk due to open a network of new facilities across the UK and Ireland.
SBFM won the contract following a competitive tender process because of its service solution based on a market leading technology suite and data driven solutions. The technology-led approach will drive service improvements, increase transparency, and support Maersk in their growth.
Steve Wengrow, Group Operations Director at SBFM, said: “We are delighted that Maersk has chosen us as their soft facilities management partner. It is great to see that our expertise and experience as providers of commercial cleaning and soft FM services for the logistics and distribution industry has been reflected in the awarding of this contract for one of the foremost global providers.
“With this landmark partnership we are further strengthening our position as market leaders in logistics. Our people are already working tirelessly to transform Maersk’s Tamworth, Kettering and Doncaster facilities into a cleaner, more efficient and safer facility for those who work in and visit it. We very much look forward to building a strong, lasting partnership with Maersk over the coming years.”
