January 10, 2019
Sodexo has been awarded an integrated FM contract with Leonardo Helicopters UK business for seven years.
Since 2012 Sodexo has worked closely with Leonardo Helicopters, successfully rationalising the delivery model by increasing the self-delivery of services by 20%.
The new IFM contract worth around £41m over the next seven years 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 contract 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.”
Paul Coombs, Head of Site Facilities, Leonardo Helicopters UK said: “The award of a new seven-year contract after successfully winning a challenging and highly competitive commercial tender is a clear demonstration of the quality and value for money offered by the Sodexo bid. The new contract will build on the partnering success that we have enjoyed over the last six years and will deliver a further step change and innovation in the delivery of IFM services to Leonardo Helicopters’ UK business.”
