Ahlsell FM and Property Services Contract for Mitie Norway

Contract Awards, EMEA
Mitie has been awarded a facilities management and property services contract by leading Nordic supplier of materials for the FM, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, tools, and personal protective equipment (PPE) sectors, Ahlsell. The contract is Mitie Norway's largest to date.

 

Under the terms of the agreement, Mitie will provide cleaning, waste management, mail services, security, snow clearance and maintenance services - as well as catering services for meetings. Mitie will partner with Ahlsell in supporting its overarching property management strategy. 

 

The five-year project covers 47 sites across Norway and Ahlsell will be the first Norwegian client to adopt Mitie’s gatekeeper model. This means Mitie’s team will take on full responsibility for property management, leaving the stores’ own teams free to focus on core business. The service will be backed by a dedicated helpdesk solution which will simplify processes. Channelling all property and facilities requirements through the helpdesk, Mitie will provide data and insight which will enable further service efficiencies and enhanced management information.

 

Previously, each of the 47 sites managed its own services. This is the first time Ahlsell, which employs around 1,000 staff in Norway, has outsourced these services, and is testimony to the strength of Mitie’s business and its robust culture. It also demonstrates Mitie establishing itself as a major player in the Norwegian FM market.

 

Andrew Smart, Mitie’s Group Head of Occupier Services and International, said:

“This contract with Ahlsell demonstrates the increasing strength of our business in Norway. We piloted this model initially, implementing our innovative helpdesk solution to provide Ahlsell with immediate access to operational and performance data. As a result, we are now supporting Ahlsell’s full FM requirements and their whole estate. We are excited by this win and look forward to developing our relationship with Ahlsell and helping them define their efficiencies and growth.”

 

Tor Yngve Melbye Administration Manager for Ahlsell, said:

“We want to work more strategically, get a better overview of the stores’ needs and reduce the number of suppliers in the area. We also see that the partnership with Mitie will result in enhanced retail quality and give us more time to focus on our core business and sales that will help us to reach our growth plans.”
