Ultrafast broadband network operator Gigaclear has selected Pareto FM to deliver hard and soft services to its portfolio of properties in the UK.
Established in 2010, Gigaclear’s ultrafast broadband network now reaches homes and businesses in more than 450 communities across 22 counties, with the company working hard to support rural properties, farms and businesses with broadband connectivity.
The telecoms operator designs and builds new networks using commercial investment. In some communities, it is working with local bodies to deliver this essential service with subsidy under the Building Digital UK (BDUK) scheme.
Under the terms of the agreement, Pareto will provide engineering, compliance and project management support, as well as a full suite of soft services. The contract applies to Gigaclear’s entire network which runs from Daventry to Cheltenham, and includes potential for additional sites in the future.
Simon Maltby, Indirect Purchasing & Facilities Manager at Gigaclear, comments: “As Gigaclear continues to grow rapidly, we wanted to find an organisation to work with that could help us achieve our ambitious targets.
“In Pareto, we found a company that totally understands our vision for what exceptional workspace services could look like and that has the drive to grow quickly with us. Pareto also brings a new level of asset management expertise which enables us not only to fully understand our growing estate but also to work towards enhancing it.
“We believe in true partnerships and look forward to growing with Pareto at this exciting time.”
Andrew Hulbert, Pareto FM managing director, adds: “Before working together, Pareto was aware of the incredible success of Gigaclear and was in awe of its growth achievements in such a short space of time. Gigaclear is changing the game in rural internet service provision, and we found many similarities in our growth stories, with both of us featuring in Sunday Times’ business fast track league tables. To have the opportunity to support an organisation at this stage of their growth and go on a journey together is a great privilege.
“We continue to learn from Gigaclear’s success every day and can’t wait to see how this develops into a leading service provider for the sector.”
Gigaclear Ltd is principally owned by Infracapital, a leading European Infrastructure investor.
