Elliott signs 5 year, £15m contract with Keepmoat
The decision by Keepmoat to partner with Elliott will create a single national specification for the company across its entire portable building fleet, which will deliver significant operational efficiencies.
Sourcing a full range of standard and bespoke portable buildings from Elliott will also enable Keepmoat to enhance its welfare commitments to its site-based personnel as well as creating a common approach to secure storage across its developments.
The exclusive agreement will mean that Elliott will provide the company’s entire portable building fleet until 2017.
Keepmoat took the decision to partner with Elliott following a rigorous tendering process. As part of this, Elliott demonstrated an ability to modify its units to provide Keepmoat with a bespoke solution, backed up by its comprehensive Support Service network.
Keepmoat is a £1.2 billion market leader in community regeneration and housing solutions. It was formed by the merger between Apollo and the companies making up the former Keepmoat Group.
“Keepmoat took the decision to partner with Elliott Hire because we were looking to build on our reputation for welfare accommodation as well as a need to adopt a more consistent approach across our portable building fleet,” said David Hughes from Keepmoat. “Elliott has a track record of being able to deliver both these on a national basis.”
David Hughes added: “Keepmoat and Elliott are both brand leaders in their respective sectors and, along with the operational efficiencies of partnering with a single, specialist provider, that creates a very powerful proposition to offer both our existing and new customers.”
As part of Keepmoat’s commitment to help its customer reduce the environmental footprint of their developments, the company will utilise Elliott Hire’s Eco-Future range, the market leader in energy saving portable buildings.
“By partnering with Elliott, Keepmoat has demonstrated that it places the welfare of its personnel above all else,” said Gordon MacDonald, Divisional Director of Elliott Hire. “Our extensive infrastructure will also mean that Keepmoat has access to our full range of secure storage units, whichever part of the country its teams are working.”
Elliott Hire provides a range of standard and bespoke building solutions. The company has a wealth of experience in supplying temporary accommodation and secure storage solutions to the education, health, industry, logistics, welfare and retail sectors.
