Those who follow our blog or social channels will know that we regularly post about new contract wins and the extension of existing contracts; we like to share these with you to keep you informed about our ongoing growth.
The latest news is a little different; although it’s about one new client, The Malcolm Group, it’s more than simply another contract win. Firstly, we’re delighted to win another contract for a Renfrewshire-based business, especially as they are also a family business! Spectrum’s Head Office is in Renfrewshire, and while our operations span the UK, supporting local family businesses holds a special place in our hearts.
However, while The Malcolm Group has its Head Office in Renfrewshire, they also extend the UK’s length and breadth. So, this may be one contract, but we will be working at 15 Malcolm Group locations throughout Scotland.
The Malcolm Group needs no introduction. Last year it celebrated 100 years in business, and its vehicles are almost part of the landscape as we drive around the country. While the Malcolm Logistics division may be the most visible, it is also worth noting they have a thriving Construction division supporting many major infrastructure projects across Scotland. They also have a Rail division which optimises transportation of goods up and down the country daily by rail.
Spectrum will be responsible for delivering cleaning services at 15 locations in Scotland, including three in Ayrshire, five in Stirlingshire, one in West Lothian, one in Lanarkshire, and four in Renfrewshire, including the Head Office at Linwood.
Spectrum’s Managing Director, Sara Speirs, is delighted with the latest win and commented: “I’m very pleased to be awarded this contract. Growing up in Renfrewshire, it’s impossible not to know the Malcolm Group; they have a strong presence and are a highly respected employer, and, like Spectrum, they are headquartered in Renfrewshire. More than that, they are a true success story and have become a driving force in the Transport sector in the UK.
Winning this contract means a great deal to Spectrum, and we look forward to working closely with the team at the Malcolm Group and the staff in all 15 locations.”
Spectrum’s Operations Director, Rebecca Bell, was equally delighted and said: “This is an important win for Spectrum. The ability to take on 15 new locations for a single new contract demonstrates the scale of our operation and our ability to meet the demands of major businesses like the Malcolm Group.
“It’s also pleasing to work with businesses that are regarded as leading providers in their sector, and the Malcolm Group certainly more than tick that box. I’m excited about this contract and looking forward to working with the team.”
