Contract caterer Sodexo has won a three-year deal worth £3.7m with mobile phone giant Nokia to provide soft services at five sites in the UK.
The contract, which started last week, sees around 130 Sodexo staff provide services for the 3,000 Nokia employees based at ten building across the five sites including its UK head office in Farnborough as well as sites in Cambridge, London and Bristol.
Services provided include catering, cleaning, landscaping, mailroom and waste management.
Sodexo was appointed by Corporate Occupier Solutions, Nokia's managing agents, for the three year contract with an option to extend a further two years. The caterer already provides a wide range of services to the Nokia Corporation across the world including Finland, India, USA, Canada and China.
Allister Richards, Sodexo's managing director for corporate services in London, said: "This is a fantastic addition to our portfolio of global clients.
"The UK contract is just part of a wider €11m (£9m) contract awarded to Sodexo for Nokia's EMEA business with the other key countries being Denmark and Germany."
