Manchester Airports Group Signs Major New Contract with Mitie

Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has signed a new multi million pound deal with facilities management (FM) firm Mitie.

Building on their existing seven year relationship, the new five year contract will see Mitie consolidate its FM services across three airports into one integrated contract.

The firm has provided FM services such as cleaning, waste management, gritting and snow clearance at Manchester Airport since 2008.

The new contract, estimated to be worth £60 million over its duration, will see Bristol-headquartered Mitie expanding its services at Manchester Airport to include pest control and landscaping.

In addition, the company will for the first time offer soft services at MAG’s Stansted and East Midlands airports, as well as hard services such as mechanical and electrical maintenance, fixed wire testing, life safety systems and plumbing.

London Stansted Airport CEO, Andrew Cowan, a sponsor of the contract, commented: “We have been working with Mitie for over seven years and it is a great credit to their team that we are developing our long-standing relationship with this new contract.

“Mitie was awarded the work after a rigorous and technical tender process.”

He continued: “Mitie has extensive experience in the sector, and an ability to provide national 24/7 coverage underpinned by advanced technology.”

Mitie MD Phil Holland said: “We are proud to be building upon our relationship with MAG through this new and consolidated contract.

“Our long running relationship is a testament to our market leading airport experience and we are confident that our expansive technology-led service capability will assist MAG in providing a world-class experience for its passengers and airline partners.”

Last month it was revealed that MAG contributes £6.2 billion to the economy, with the main drivers behind the expanded ‘economic footprint’ of the airports include a higher number of employment opportunities and the associated economic value generated by their operations.
