The managing director of public sector caterer ISS Mediclean has spoken of his ambition to grow annual turnover at the business from £300m to £500m within five years.
Simon Cox, who as head of Mediclean has responsibility for education via ISS Caterhouse and the Ministry of Defence under ISS Defence, as well as hospitals, told Caterer in an exclusive interview that the target remained achievable despite the recession,
"We've doubled in the past five years, so there's no reason why we can't do nearly the same over the following period," he said.
Last year, ISS Mediclean landed a major multi-site London hospital deal worth more than £100m in turnover over the life of the contract. The deal saw ISS Mediclean take on hospital services in West London at Hammersmith, Queen Charlotte & Chelsea and Charing Cross hospitals from Compass Group, including patient catering, running staff and visitor restaurants, portering, pest control, logistics and cleaning.
