MITIE on track to operate Ashford International station for HS1

MITIE, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company, has been awarded a contract with HS1 Ltd, the owner of the high speed railway between St Pancras in London and the Channel Tunnel.

MITIE will be responsible for operating Ashford International station for the next five years. The contract, valued at £1m per annum, will see MITIE run the international station, including station management, maintenance, cleaning and security.

The contract represents a new opportunity for MITIE, combining delivery of a range of facilities management services with overall management of the station.

HS1 Ltd holds the concession to operate the route and stations which connect London to the Channel Tunnel and the international high speed routes to Paris and Brussels. The line also provides commuter services between London and Kent.

Peter Mosley, managing director of MITIE’s Technical Facilities Management business, said:

“This is an important contract award for MITIE, and an opportunity to expand our services beyond traditional facilities management. We are excited about working with HS1 to deliver world-class services and positively contribute to the station environment.”

Kevin Beauchamp, engineering and assets director for HS1 Ltd, said:

“In their current contract, MITIE has successfully combined an innovative approach to facilities management with cost efficiencies in the running of Ashford International. This makes the station more attractive to current and future train operators alike, and helps to maintain a high quality service for our customers.”
