ESS signs new £3.75m Metropolitan Police deal with Carillion

ESS Support Service Worldwide has retained a contract with Carillion Integrated Services at the Metropolitan Police Specialist Training Centre for five years, in a deal worth around £3.75m.

The new deal will see the Compass Group business continue to deliver restaurant catering, retail, hospitality, vending and bar food services to around 300 students and 167 permanent members of staff each day.

Janet Wigley, strategic partnership director of ESS, commented: "We've worked hard to create a solution that is both cost effective and adds value to the existing operation. This is a great result and shows how a combination of good client relationships and great delivery is the foundation to successful long term partnerships."

Chris Garside, managing director of ESS, added: "Having built up a great reputation for our service delivery to both Carillion Integrated Services and the Metropolitan Police over the past five years, it is great to be awarded a further five-year contract."

The training centre was opened in 2003 in Gravesend, Kent, to give London's police officers firearms and public order training. It features specialist live-fire shooting ranges; mock trains and a subway; an assault house for practicing methods of entry, search houses; and an urban range with simulation roads and houses along with other simulators for firearms training.
