Mitie, the facilities management company, has retained a £multi-million security contract with Eurostar.
The three year contract, which has the potential to be expanded to five years, will be delivered by Mitie’s total security management business.
Having worked together for five years, Mitie and Eurostar have a well-established relationship. Mitie will provide more than 250 highly trained security professionals, who will continue to ensure the safety and well-being of Eurostar passengers.
Bob Forsyth, managing director of Mitie’s total security management business, said:
“I’m delighted to be continuing our partnership with Eurostar. We have enjoyed becoming a trusted and innovative partner to Eurostar and look forward to continuing this in the future.
“We have also maintained our 100% client retention rate in the transport and aviation sector. We have a proven track record in this sector where we have demonstrated success in understanding the compliance needs and how to enhance the passenger experience.”
Stephen Fielder, head of security, Eurostar added:
“Mitie will continue to be a key partner to the growth of our business over the coming years.
As a quality security and service provider, we are again entrusting them to handle the ever-increasing passenger volumes departing from our UK terminals on brand new fleet of (larger) trains later this year. We also have the challenge of introducing passport checking at all UK exit points and Mitie will be integral in supporting us in making this hassle-free for our passengers”
