Affinity Water appoints Facilicom UK
Utility company recruits contract cleaning specialist Facilicom to service 16 sites across their portfolio
Dedicated soft services and contract cleaning specialist, Facilicom UK, has secured the contract to service multiple Affinity Water sites across the UK. The company is the UK’s largest water-only supplier, providing on average 900 million litres of water each day to a population of more than 3.6 million people.
Facilicom will be responsible for the daily and weekly cleaning of 16 Affinity Water sites, including their HQ at The Hub in Hatfield, through to water testing labs and operational sites for engineering, water sourcing and distribution/pumping across Essex, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Surrey.
The contract has also seen 30 employees transfer to Facilicom UK from the previous contractor, who will now benefit from the company’s people-focused culture. Facilicom believes that people are their prime asset – this is why they are a Living Wage Foundation Recognised Service Provider, and provide continuous training. They also offer every colleague access to a 24-hour Employee Assistance Programme helpline, where they can confidentially discuss any issues that might affect their work performance, health and wellbeing.
Peter Buff, director of operations at Facilicom UK, comments: ‘Like many utility companies, Affinity Water has a diverse and varied portfolio of locations, each with their own requirements and specialist cleaning needs. However, we are used to tailoring our services to the different needs of our diverse client base, and will ensure that we have all the systems in place to help keep our staff safe with correct operating procedures, whilst delivering a first rate service. We’d also like to extend a warm welcome to the 30 employees who have now joined the Facilicom family.’
