Morrison Facilities Services order book climbs to £1.4bn

Morrison Facilities Services has broken through the £1bn mark in its order book for the first time.

The public sector repairs and maintenance provider's forward orders now stand at £1.4bn.

Since January, Morrison’s new business wins have totalled £780m, with a further £580m of possible contract extensions.

New contracts include a £300m 10-year partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, a £90m 10-year contract with Family Mosaic Housing Association, and a £60.5m 5.5-year contract with Arms Length Management Organisation 2010 Rotherham.

The company, formerly part of Morrison Construction, now has over 45 contracts within the public and private sectors and looks after over 500,000 houses and 4,000 public buildings across England and Scotland.

Guy Wakeley, chief executive, said: “Morrison continues to go from strength to strength and we have seen significant growth in our core responsive repairs business since 2009.

“New opportunities continue to come to market and demand within the public sector for our services has never been higher. The results of the Government’s comprehensive spending review due later this month, is sure to create further opportunities in the market as authorities look to reduce their costs by outsourcing services to the private sector.

“Morrison as the market leader in responsive repairs is well place to take on these opportunities.”
