Mitie drives off with integrated FM deal at Toyota

Mitie has landed a new five-year integrated facilities management contract with Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK.

The contract will amalgamate many different outside contracts under one management structure and will include the provision of infrastructure maintenance, cleaning and grounds maintenance services to the manufacturing plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire. This is the first time Toyota has taken this approach to facilities management at any of its plants within Europe.

Mitie will be responsible for industrial cleaning services and the maintenance of the infrastructure of site buildings including air handling, electrical and mechanical maintenance and will also repair metal stillages used to carry car parts to the production line.

To complete the first wave of services, Mitie will also provide grounds maintenance for the 150-hectare facility. This includes the plant’s local nature reserve, which Mitie will be caring for alongside the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.

Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Engineering and Integrated FM, Mitie said: “Producing well over 150,000 vehicles every year, Toyota’s Burnaston factory is a key contributor to Toyota’s European success. We are excited to bring our expertise to this partnership with Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK. Being responsible for the building maintenance, cleaning and grounds maintenance we will ensure the plant keeps running smoothly, supporting the high levels of efficiency typical of the Toyota Production System.”
