Churchill has won a three-year contract to provide cleaning services to Dover Harbour Board, the owner and operator of he Port of Dover.
The port is the world’s busiest passenger port, with 16 million travellers, 2.1 million lorries, 2.8 million cars and motorcycles and 86,000 coaches passing through it each year. It boasts an annual turnover of £58.5 million.
The contract, which began in December 2016, includes cleaning of more than 70 buildings, along with internal and external cleaning services, washroom services, plumbing and maintenance.
Churchill has recently up-skilled existing team members to enhance service capability on-site to include plumbing, maintenance and grounds maintenance, improving serve delivery and delivering cost synergies in the process.
The operational delivery model in place at the Port of Dover combines state-of-the-art technology and innovative equipment to provide a forward-thinking solution. This includes implementation of Churchill’s bespoke MapTag system to manage reactive and periodic cleaning tasks, spill management, quality auditing and fault reporting, which has delivered increased accountability and planning efficiencies. Churchill has also introduced chemical-free cleaning with pure water, which absorbs dirt particles and removes bacteria efficiently without the use of chemicals, leaving a residue-free finish on all surfaces.
James Temby, regional manager commented: ‘’This is a hugely exciting contract for Churchill. One of our key business ambitions is to grow our transport portfolio and being awarded the contract for one of the busiest ports in Europe offers the best platform to move forward.
“The original win and subsequent contract successes demonstrates our capability in this area and we are delighted to have been trusted as a partner. We are confident we will continue to deliver the highest standards and grow our partnership with the Port to ensure a successful ongoing relationship.”
