ESS wins five-year contract with HM Naval Base Clyde

ESS, the defence, government services, offshore and remote sector of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has won the Future Maritime Support Programme (FMSP) soft facilities management contract for Her Majesty's Naval Base Clyde – the Royal Navy's main presence in Scotland.

The five-year contract, commencing on 1 October, will see ESS deliver services ranging from catering, retail and leisure through to waste, cleaning and laundry to the base, which is home to the core of the submarine service, including the nation's nuclear deterrent. ESS will welcome around 350 transferring employees to its workforce on this date.

The contract will be delivered by ESS Defence, which already supports more than 250 military establishments across the UK.

Commodore Donald Doull, naval base commander, said: "I am delighted to welcome ESS to the community of delivery partners here at HMNB Clyde. The success of the naval base is built on high operating standards and close working relationships between all of our partners and I look forward to seeing ESS become an integral part of our team and its joint success."

Mark Webster, managing director – ESS defence, government services, offshore and remote, added: "We are absolutely delighted to secure the FMSP soft FM contract at HMNB Clyde. We will deliver a tailored, high-quality food and support services solution for thousands of military personnel, civil servants and the wider defence community on-site. These are exciting times and we are looking forward to working closely with the FMSP team, with whom we have built a very successful relationship. It is an honour and a privilege to play our part in supporting the nation's forces."
