Belated Happy New Year
Belated Happy New Year!
Welcome to a brief monthly business overview: reports from staff feedback survey highlighted an appetite for greater comms from me on business development opportunities throughout the company so this synopsis of monthly events will be repeated from now on.
2016 brought us Brexit nd Trump - now who foresaw that a year ago!! So, can we really crystal ball gaze and predict what 2017 will bring? Well, perhaps not, but I for one am relatively optimistic for the year ahead within our FM support sectors. Whilst some of our clients have reduced or slowed down investment and there are no doubts that there are still challenges to face, nothing is that drastic. In fact, a number of new opportunities have presented themselves to us over the last few month.
New MBDA Bolton complex is now operational and our inflated teams across the North West have risen to the challenge amazingly by suporting both old and new sites effortlessly. Sticking with MBDA, we have a meeting to agree our 2-Year PPM Maintenance contract extension in early Feb 2017 so this secures this agreement to mid-2019 and whilst writing this have just agreed all support services, ancillary and cleanng budgets fo 2017.
Dean & the retail team have also been busy and are currently in negotiations with Arcus to work with them on the recently awarded CO OP FM and refridgeration services contract (previously managed by Integral) and with Ryan Jayberg who provide refridgeration services to the John Lewis partnership and has targeted the Waitrose store case cleaning works.
Since the acquisition of Integral by Jones Lang Lasalle the Sussex offices has also had enquires from a host of new end-user clients and we'll keep you posted on developments.
