GRITIT have secured a public sector framework award for the provision of winter gritting, snow clearance and grounds maintenance services.


Following a competitive tender process, GRITIT has been awarded a place on the YPO 827 Winter Maintenance Products and Services Framework for Lot 4 - Winter Gritting, Snow Clearance and Grounds Maintenance Services. 


YPO is a leading public sector procurement organisation that supplies products and services to a wide range of customers including schools, local authorities, charities, emergency services, public sector and other businesses such as nurseries and care homes.


The Framework enables YPO's members to run OJEU compliant competitions for some or all of the services; this is the first time YPO has included services as well as products for Winter Maintenance, reflecting increasing demand from members for access to best in class service provision.


Inclusion onto the Framework now formally positions GRITIT as a leading provider of FM services to the public sector and will further widen its net to attracting new business wins. Currently GRITIT counts a number of public sector organisations among its clients, including Her Majesty’s Prison Service (HMP), the Fire Service, as well as a number of Housing Associations and hospital and healthcare contracts.


Steve Webb, GRITIT Commercial Director said:  “We are one of only a select few companies in the UK to have successfully gained a place on the YPO Framework and we are pleased to be among some of the industry’s biggest FM providers in doing so.


“This demonstrates the significance of the achievement and is testament to the technical capabilities of our talented team. 


“This is an exciting time at GRITIT as we continue to grow and diversify.  Winning a place on the YPO Framework gives us a fantastic opportunity to further grow our public sector portfolio, working in partnership and delivering high-quality value for money services.  We are looking forward to a productive and positive relationship with YPO and their customers."
