Spectrum extends reach in England with new contract win


Spectrum’s Managing Director, Sara Speirs and Operations Director, Rebecca Bell


Spectrum Service Solutions has extended its contract with global technology, software and engineering giant Emerson.

Having worked with the company for several years at its operations in Cumbernauld and Aberdeen, Spectrum will now provide cleaning and consumables services in three English facilities in Stockton, Stockport and Leicester.

Spectrum was appointed by property managers, CBRE, with whom it works on several other contracts throughout the UK.

Speaking about the contract extension, Spectrum’s Managing Director, Sara Speirs, commented: “We consider it a privilege to work with Emerson, and we’re delighted they have appreciated our hard work in Scotland enough to entrust us with cleaning these facilities in England.

“These new locations are a welcome addition to our portfolio, which is growing in numbers and expanding in geographical coverage. We look forward to working with the Emerson teams in Stockton, Stockport and Leicester and continuing to grow the Spectrum brand across the UK.”

Rebecca Bell, Spectrum’s Operations Director, added: “All wins are great, but this one’s excellent because Emerson has recognised the outstanding work of our staff to the extent that they have extended their contract to include additional facilities.

“The fact that these contracts are in Stockton, Stockport, and Leicester is especially pleasing because it provides a foothold for the Spectrum brand in the South, which has been on our radar. We are looking to build on this success, both with Scottish clients that have facilities in England and for new England-based clients.”

Emerson develops solutions in heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR), professional tools, cold chain monitoring and food waste management and is expanding its residential and commercial offerings into new, complementary areas such as air quality, food sustainability and smart-home technology.

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
