BASF Extends IFM Contract with Sodexo
BASF has awarded a two year extension to Sodexo’s soft and hard services contract at six sites in the UK and Ireland including its UK head office in Stockport.
The foodservice and facility services provider has delivered services to BASF for over 30 years, with the current agreement for integrated facilities management (IFM) services at the six sites in place since 2014.
BASF is one of the world’s largest chemical companies, supplying raw materials to most industries including agriculture, automotive, chemicals, construction, energy and pharmaceuticals. The company employs some 800 people in the UK and Ireland.
Sodexo delivers environmental, health and safety (EHS) services, technical and maintenance services, cleaning, security, reception and visitor management as well as remote maintenance.
Julie Ennis, its CEO for corporate services in the United Kingdom and Ireland, says:
“We have a long-standing partnership with BASF here in the UK and Ireland.
“With similar corporate values on treating those we employ with respect, a commitment to ensuring our businesses have a positive impact on local communities, and a strategy to limit the impact our operations have on the planet.
“Our teams work closely with each of the sites we deliver services for, to ensure the workplace experience is second to none.
“We support BASF’s employee engagement and experience goals so its people can focus on delivering excellence every day.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership for a further two years.”
Chris Skurray, Facilities Manager for BASF UK and Ireland, adds:
“We are delighted to extend our contract with Sodexo for a further two years.
“In a time of economic uncertainty, we know that as a trusted partner, Sodexo has the capability and expertise to continue to work alongside us through these challenging times.”
