Churchill Joins Forces with North Wales Fire & Rescue Service

June 24, 2015

Churchill is delighted to announce our new partnership with North Wales Fire & Rescue Service for the delivery of cleaning services to 48 sites spread throughout North Wales. Our contract successfully mobilised on Monday 1st June and will run for three years with an option to extend for two further years.

North Wales Fire & Rescue Service (NWFRS) covers an area of nearly 2,440 square miles, made up of rural, coastal and urban areas, and serves a population of over 678,000 people. The Service operates from some 52 stations and various office sites and employs some 1000 personnel including Whole time Firefighters, Firefighters on the Retained Duty System, Fire Control staff, and non-uniformed support staff.

Given the geographic spread of sites, this is a unique contract and one which demands flexibility and dedicated management. Our experience of managing geographically-wide spread contracts makes Churchill an ideal partner for NWFRS. Within our tender submission we demonstrated our ability to provide the maximum flexibility and responsiveness required to deliver the highest standards across all sites.

The NWFRS contract adds to our portfolio of over 40 fire stations throughout the UK. We currently clean fire stations as part of our contracts with Dorset County Council, West Sussex County Council and East Sussex County Council. We are looking forward to developing a strong and evolving partnership with NWFRS over the next few years with a seamless service delivery and excellent contract support.

Lee James, Business Development Manager, who led our bid comments: Churchill is delighted to have been selected by NWFRS as their cleaning partner. NWFRS presented their unique requirement which has many challenges; not least the vast area that is to be covered. Following a successful mobilisation the client’s feedback has been very positive with particular reference to how smooth the transition has been. The NWFRS contract strengthens our position in North Wales and we look forward to building on this success going forward!”
