Defence Command Denmark and ISS Denmark has signed an agreement for an integrated facility service solution at all the Danish Defence’s establishments in Western Denmark. The agreement covers Cleaning, Canteens, Property Services and Operations-related tasks at the Danish Defence’s more than 400 establishments west of the Great Belt.
On the 1st of February 2014, the approx. 600 employees currently performing the tasks will be transferred from the Danish Defence to ISS.
Martin Gaarn Thomsen, Country Manager of ISS in Denmark, said:
– We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues in ISS. We are pleased with the confidence the Danish Defence shows ISS in entering into this agreement. This agreement with an integrated solution is an example of responsible and holistic public sector outsourcing.
The agreement, one of the largest of its kind in Denmark will run for four years. A significant number of ISS employees are already engaged with the preparatory work to ensure a smooth transition of the many tasks and employees.
ISS is also a supplier to the defences in several other countries, among others the UK and the Netherlands.
