Mitie, the FTSE 250 outsourced services provider, has been awarded a £12 million contract extension with Groupe Eurotunnel SA, the company that manages and operates the Channel Tunnel between Britain and France.
Mitie’s total security management business was originally awarded the contract to deliver security and support services for Eurotunnel in 2010, undertaking a variety of roles including vehicle screening, traffic flow, management, freight chocking and preparation activities, and 24 hour access and egress control.
This latest award extends Mitie’s contract for a further three years.
Bob Forsyth, managing director of Mitie’s total security management business, said:
“We’re delighted to be furthering our partnership with Eurotunnel through our sector expertise and innovative thinking from one of the largest sector-dedicated operations in aviation and transport.”
Rob Gregory, head of security, Eurotunnel, added:
“In our 20th year since shuttle services began through the Channel Tunnel, Eurotunnel is pleased to extend its partnership with Mitie. Over the last four years Mitie has proven itself to be an effective and cost efficient partner with the ability to understand and meet our unique requirements specific to the day to day operation of the Channel Tunnel.”
