Serco has secured a new three-year contract with the Ministry of Defence to provide a range of manpower services to the Joint Helicopter Command at Wattisham Air Station.

The contract, valued at £400,000 per year, will see Serco continue to operate at the base, near Needham Market, where it has supported Army aviation since 1995.

Serco provides a range of services at the station, from quality assurance and health and safety management to motor transport vehicle servicing and administration.

The company’s nine-strong team is fully integrated into 7 Air Assault Battalion REME and works in partnership with the Army to maintain the UK’s Apache helicopter force.

Serco director Stephen Lagadu said: “We are delighted that we have been awarded a new contract at Wattisham Air Station.

“We had a strong bid, a first class bid team and a fantastic team of committed and dedicated people who understand the job and have worked hard to deliver a high quality, efficient and innovative service.

“We look forward to continuing to work with 7 Air Assault Battalion REME at Wattisham Flying Station and being an integral part of Army aviation.”
