Mitie Awarded Major IFM Contract With GlaxoSmithKlineDecember 20, 2019
GlaxoSmithKline Manufacturing Supply Chains has awarded Mitie a five-year contract to deliver fully integrated facilities management (IFM) services in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
This is the first major fully IFM contract for Mitie within the pharmaceutical sector and will include engineering, cleaning, catering, and scientific services across eight GSK manufacturing sites.
The contract is worth around US$167 million over five years, with an option to extend the contract for up to two years. The contract includes the provision of specialist scientific services—managing specific routine laboratory processes such as the preparation of chemical and biological compounds, as well as operating, maintaining, and calibrating highly specialized laboratory instruments.
Catering services will be delivered by Mitie’s strategic catering partner, Gather & Gather.
“We are thrilled to welcome GSK as a major pharmaceutical client, with this comprehensive integrated FM contract,” said Carlo Alloni, managing director, Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management. “This agile model has been designed to deliver more control to our customer, with excellent service underpinned by new technology, which will be embedded over the lifetime of the partnership.”
