Facilities management specialist Westgrove Group has enjoyed a successful first half of 2019 with a continuing growth in new business.
The company, based in Warrington, has secured a wealth of new contracts with many of them in the south of England as it continues to strength its business across the UK.
Westgrove provides its security, cleaning and PRM (Persons with Reduced Mobility) services to shopping centres and mixed-use destinations, corporate offices, business parks and airports.
With a current turnover of £23million, the company has set itself the goal of becoming a £40million turnover business within 5 years.
A significant contract win was the Telford Shopping Centre, in partnership with managing agent Savills. The centre in Shropshire is being transformed in a £55million revamp to help deliver a new modern environment for shoppers and the right space for anchor stores.
Centre director Glynn Morrow, said, ‘We are delighted to enter into a new soft services partnership with Westgrove. Telford is undergoing a fantastic redevelopment with the emphasis on guest experience and customer services and we are excited to be undertaking this journey with Westgrove and their wealth of shopping centre experience.’
Westgrove has also secured other new contract wins with managing agents Savills, CBRE, Montagu Evans & Lee Baron.
To support the continued expansion Westgrove has appointed its first Business Development Director in the South, Adrian Canale, who has over 15 years’ experience working in the FM industry. The company will be opening a new satellite office in the south later this year.
Claire McKinley Smith, managing director of The Westgrove Group, said: “The contract wins we have secured in the first half of this year have continued to increase the company’s UK-wide footprint. Many of our partners are now based in the south of England and this is set to increase with the appointment of a new Business Development Director.
“We pride ourselves on the quality of our customer service, the flexibility we can provide and the continuing commitment to innovate and introduce new services and technologies.
“But most important of all are the 1,000 Westgrove colleagues who are responsible for delivering an excellent service 365 days a year for our customers and partners across the UK.”
