All facilities management, building maintenance and production maintenance, cleaning, security, catering, reception, helpdesk and grounds maintenance services at several Bombardier sites around the world will be overseen by ENGIE. The company will also manage capital expenditure projects and energy performance solutions for it.

ENGIE will provide these services in a number of both existing and new buildings, including manufacturing facilities. The contract is scheduled for immediate implementation in July 2018 and the delivery of services will commence immediately after the successful completion of the current service agreements with Bombardier’s current local providers. The contract will be managed centrally by ENGIE’s international FM (EIFM) team, but will be delivered locally by the company’s national services organisations.
