ESS signs new £7.6m deal with Interserve

Offshore foodservice provider ESS Support Services Worldwide has signed a new £7.6m deal with Interserve to continue delivering services at HMS Drake in Plymouth for the next five years.

ESS, Compass Group's catering, retail and support service brand for the defence and government sector, has operated at HMS Drake for the last decade.

The contract extension sees ESS continue its relationship with facilities management (FM) firm Interserve, with which it works across a number of clients.

This deal will involve the delivery of a wide range of food and support services including catering, retail, leisure, and hotel services such as 24-hour portering, laundry, cleaning and refuse management.

ESS managing director Chris Garside said: "Over the past decade we have continually strived to deliver best in class support services and the extension of the contract is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team at HMS Drake."

Simon Cowls, Interserve defence regional PFI director, added: "This rigorous process required by the MoD every five years has demonstrated that ESS continues to provide cost effective quality services across the HMS Drake establishment.

"It has demonstrated in comparison with industry sector benchmarks that the service offering from ESS and particularly the team at Drake fully understand and deliver soft services to an exemplary level. The result of the benchmarking further underpins the long term strategic relationship between Interserve and ESS"
