Sodexo has been awarded a seven-year integrated FM contract, worth £41 million, with Leonardo Helicopters UK business.
The global services company has worked closely with Leonardo Helicopters since 2012, successfully rationalising the delivery model by increasing the self-delivery of services by 20 per cent.
The new IFM contract includes the delivery of a wide range of 30 hard and soft services including all planned and reactive services ranging from cleaning, security access systems, waste, grounds maintenance, asset management, technical services (electrical, mechanical, HVAC & civils) and helpdesk delivered to Leonardo Helicopters UK business.
Over the course of the new deal Sodexo will continue to develop its services in line with the needs of Leonardo Helicopters and its 2,800 or so employees based at its site in Yeovil, Somerset.
Sam Scott, Divisional Managing Director, Corporate Services IFM, Sodexo UK and Ireland said: “We are delighted that Leonardo Helicopters has decided to continue our contract following a competitive pitch. To be able to retain Leonardo as a customer, demonstrate value for money and provide continuous employment for our teams, is a great achievement. Over the last six years we have increased the scope of services we deliver and driven continuous improvements in line with Leonardo’s strategy, we are looking forward to continuing this success and developing our services to further support the customer experience.”
