A New Brand for a New Outdoor Estates Offering
A rebranding of the UK’s GRITIT Group as OUTCO reflects its new focus on outdoor estate compliance.
The move follows the recent acquisition of surfacing and engineering business NMC Group which extends the group’s capabilities to include a full range of technology-enabled infrastructure, winter and grounds compliance services. Described by the company as an “industry first” combined service offering, its new solutions portfolio provides a way for customers to manage outdoor assets by bringing together multiple outdoor services to ensure enhanced estate safety, compliance and commercial efficiency.
Recently appointed OUTCO CEO, Andy Barry, explains: “The effective management of a company’s outdoor estate can be complex and time-consuming for a business. What we now bring to our clients is a new way of working. A full range of outdoor estate management services procured under a single contract. Having one company managing your entire outdoor estate simplifies the whole process and saves time, effort and ultimately, costs. Beyond this, the synergies between services drives real value. Our clients will benefit from a more joined up and proactive approach to risk management and compliance, powered by our innovative leading-edge technology. This ensures greater transparency of both opportunities and risks across sites, more accountability and better service; ultimately a better and safer experience for our clients, customers and staff.”
Born out of an established heritage in winter gritting and grounds maintenance, OUTCO will continue to base its delivery platform on smart technology. By offering compliance and visibility, the company will offer assurance to its impressive client-base that their outdoor estates are safe, compliant and accessible all year round. Its patented technology provides real time visibility on service delivery, offering data driven assurance that issues are being resolved, with critical detailed evidence to demonstrate compliance, whilst at the same time, generating internal operational efficiency gains.
Under the new brand, OUTCO will continue to manage more than 7,500 sites for some of the UK’s biggest organisations, including Tesco, BP and the NHS.
Mark Rogerson, company chairman, says: “The launch of OUTCO reflects the spectacular transformation of the Group, which under Total Capital Partner’s ownership has gone from strength to strength and is now a significant force within the FM sector. Generating over £55m of revenues, OUTCO is a very credible and efficient business and is proving to be an effective growth and market consolidation platform.
“Our industry-leading operational performance, driven by our in-house technology solutions has created something very special for our fast-growing customer base.”
