Contracts bring in a £22m windfall

NEW contracts worth £22 million have helped a West Yorkshire company strengthen its list of big clients.

Bailey Maintenance, the specialist maintenance arm of Ilkley-based building services provider NG Bailey, has gained work from national companies.

Gained under a new senior management team, these recent successes give a positive start to a five-year strategy to expand its nationwide client base.

Supermarket chain Morrisons and railway company Southeastern are among the businesses who have hired Bailey Maintenance.

Managing director Stuart Linington said: "In an increasingly competitive marketplace, we are delighted to have been awarded new contracts, and expanded or retained existing ones, from some of the biggest and best-known companies in the UK.

"The launch of a new delivery model, more focused on the needs of our customers, has played an important role in securing this work.

"So too has our determination to keep pace with advances in maintenance techniques and industry best practice, as well as embracing the latest innovations in energy efficiency and sustainable technology."

He added: "The work cuts across all sectors in which we specialise, including rail, retail, education, financial and professional services and government buildings, and half of them are for three years.

"It is an endorsement of the new way of partnership working that we have adopted, as well as our commitment to stay at the forefront of industry innovation and quality."

NG Bailey employs 3,100 people across the country.
