Case studies/testimonials

The Churchill management and staff have been superb during the pandemic. We’ve had to make significant changes to how we clean and increasingly sanitise our infrastructure. They have shown great commitment and flexibility as well as providing some innovative solutions to help support us through this difficult period.

Our relationship with Churchill is that of a partnership.  Truly tested by the pandemic, unprecedented as it is, the Churchill team work dynamically and proactively.  24 hours a day there are dedicated teams of people across GTR and Churchill working together to safely and efficiently deliver high standards of train servicing, sanitising and cleaning.  This is a partnership that I'm proud to be a part of.
