Stagecoach Renews Cordant Contract

Company News, Contract Awards, EMEA

Cordant Group subsidiary, Cordant Cleaning, has secured a significant contract renewal with leading bus operator Stagecoach to provide cleaning, shunting and fuelling services at ten depots across London.

 

The new deal will also incorporate an eleventh depot in Guilford, which means that Cordant will branch out of London into a new Regional Operating Company; Stagecoach South.

 

Since 2010, Cordant has delivered an extensive range of solutions at the  ten depots – Barking, Bow, Bromley, Catford, Kangley Bridge Road, Leyton, Plumstead, Rainham, Romford & West Ham. This includes vehicle cleaning and shunting, engineering and admin premises cleaning, plus fuelling, oiling and fluid level checks and changes. Since holding the contract, Cordant has earned praise for funding and building a web-based reporting portal to efficiently manage communications and operations, as well as eliminating paperwork. In addition, a staff incentive scheme was jointly launched by Cordant and Stagecoach to the value of £12k p/a, rewarding employees for exceptional results in mystery traveller surveys.

 

As a result of the updated agreement, the Guilford-based personnel will successfully transfer to Cordant under TUPE, which will bring the total number of staff working on the contract to over 250. By adding an eleventh depot, the latest deal now covers in excess of 1,300 vehicles.

 

Chris Remnant, Engineering Director at Stagecoach, said: “Over the last nine years Cordant Cleaning has continuously improved and developed its service offering to meet our evolving requirements. This is a long-standing relationship built on trust and like-minded values, and we are excited to extend the partnership.”

 

Guy Pakenham, Managing Director at Cordant Cleaning, said: “This highly important renewal signifies our commitment to excellence and our ability to consistently deliver world class cleaning services over a prolonged period. We are very proud to be re-awarded this contract, as well as taking on cleaning duties at Guilford. This is a fantastic achievement and I congratulate my team on their hard work.”
