Supply chain business, Saint-Gobain UK has appointed phs Group to provide hygiene services for 1,200 sites within its building distribution businesses in the UK.
phs Group will provide the Saint-Gobain sites with hygiene services and products including sanitary waste services, roller towels, air fresheners and urinal products and will also provide floorcare services. In addition, it will also be working on a project focused on improved washroom water efficiency, helping Saint-Gobain to achieve the objectives of its water-savings mandate.
Christian Broady, Saint-Gobain Building Distribution UK Facilities and Services Buyer said: “On a practical level, we needed to work with a company that was established and capable of delivering services in line with our network coverage but value was also a priority.
“phs Group won our business by taking a genuine partnership approach, engaging with us to truly understand our washroom hygiene issues. They offered new thinking and practical solutions but equally importantly, they were financially aware. Their solutions were not about reinventing the wheel, which would be both costly and impractical for an estate of our size. Instead, they found ways to work with, and optimise the hygiene infrastructure that we currently have.”
