United Kingdom for a Norse as orders top £2 billion
Norfolk facilities management and contract services provider Norse Commercial Services now has over £2 billion of business on its books, managing director Peter Hawes reports.
Although its head office and roots are in Norwich, Norse is enjoying major successes in winning work nationally – including a number of multi-million pound partnerships with local authorities across the UK that are in place for up to 15 years.
The company, which has a workforce of 8,300, also has a growing portfolio of contractual clients won under competitive tendering.
Deals include waste management at Hutchison Ports UK, facilities management at Norfolk & Norwich University Trust, schools cleaning in Kent, Sheffield and North London, and civic buildings cleaning in East Dorset.
“Our forward order book, the total value of revenue over the life of our current contracts and partnerships, shows just how strong and successful Norse is,” said Norse sales director Geoff Tucker.
“In the last 12 months we’ve won contracts worth £24 million, with a forward order value of £200 million. These, together with our longstanding joint ventures and contract renewals, mean we now have over £2 billion of guaranteed business over the next decade.”
