The three-year contract, which includes an option for a further two-year extension, will see Bury St Edmunds-based Servest deliver comprehensive station cleaning services at 23 of Chiltern Railways’ stations on its routes between London and the Midlands.

It builds on Servest’s existing relationship with the train operator which includes the refurbishment the public toilets at its London Marylebone terminus as well as other non-contractual work on the behalf of the client.

Rob Legge, group chief executive for the UK and Europe at Servest, said: “Servest is delighted to be appointed by Chiltern Railways to deliver cleaning services to 23 of Chiltern Railways’ stations. We have already established a great working relationship with Chiltern Railways and look forward to building on that by delivering service excellence.”

Servest, a member of the EADT/EDP Top100 list of the largest companies in Suffolk and Norfolk, employs more than 15,000 people across 4,500 sites around the UK, with major bases in London, Harrogate, Rickmansworth, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh as well as its corporate office in Bury.

It is 73% owned by Servest South Africa with the remainder owned by the UK management team.

Chiltern Railways, which is part of Arriva, the division of German rail company Deutsche Bahn responsible for regional passenger transport outside of Germany, operates routes from London to Birmingham, Aylesbury and Stratford-upon-Avon, with services to Oxford due to be added in 2016.
