Chief executive Guy Wakeley said: “These new contracts are all important relationships for Morrison and help to further strengthen our position in the market, particularly in the northeast and south of the country. After a successful mobilisation period we are now focussed on adding value to our clients and providing the best possible service to their residents.
“The business is performing well despite the challenging public sector environment and over the next 12 months we will be focusing on a number of key new business opportunities, which will enable us to further grow the company in a sustainable way.”
