Latest cleaning developments from Regent at Facilities Show 2009
National contractor Regent Cleaning is rolling out latest service
developments at the Facilities Show 2009 (NEC, Birmingham, 12th to 14th
May 2009) in the wake of contract gains of over £2m.
Healthcare sector gains include the extension of the fast-growing
company's contract to clean all premises in the Midlands and south of
England operated by the NHSBT (National Blood Service). Regent cleans a
total of 57 NBS sites including Europe's largest blood processing centre
Regent's education division has secured contracts to clean at the
University of Western England, Manchester University and continue with
the Open University complex at Milton Keynes. Its contract with Matthew
Boulton College in Birmingham has been tripled in size with the merger of
Sutton Coldfied College.
Retail contracts include IKEA's Cardiff store, which has just been
secured for a further term.
Public sector division contracts include the expansion of Regent's work
for the Ministry of Justice to include all Courts in the Midlands and
south west of England while further local authority contract wins have
been secured with New Forest District Council and Wychaven District
The company has also recently won the contract to clean offices and toll
booths at the Severn Bridges.
Regent Cleaning's market share and geographical reach were boosted last
year with its acquisition of Exclusive Support Services, with offices in
Birmingham, Harwich, London and Manchester.
The deal boosts staffing levels to 4,500 and sales turnover to over £26m
at Regent, itself acquired last year by France's second largest cleaning
company, 1.3 billion Euro turnover Samsic Group.
Regent is exhibiting at the Facilities Show on Stand C27.
