Coor expands in Norway
Coor Service Management has signed a new agreement with Norwegian company Aibel to manage and develop a range of services. The agreement runs for four years with an extension option of a maximum of six years.
The new agreement means Coor delivering and developing a large portfolio of services including restaurants, cleaning, reception, security and property maintenance at and around Aibel's offices and plants nationwide in Norway, at Stavanger, Haugesund, Asker, Bergen and elsewhere. These services were previously delivered by a number of smaller subcontractors.
"We're delighted about this agreement. By consolidating the number of service providers and taking an overall grasp of this type of service, Aibel will achieve a more economical solution while also improving quality, security, control and follow-up. We're looking forward to our mission of developing support services in close partnership with Aibel," commented Klas Elmberg, CEO for Coor Service Management in Norway
The contract is effective from 1 May.
"It's becoming increasingly common to coordinate all services delivered in and around a property or industrial plant through a single provider. In Sweden, the trend towards integrated service solutions is most pronounced amongst larger, private enterprises, while the public sector has been driving progress in Denmark recently. Although the Norwegian market was previously less mature, the two major Norwegian IFM agreements that Coor recently signed with Statoil and Aibel show that this trend has now reached Norway," commented Mikael Stöhr, CEO and President of Coor Service Management.
