Bidvest Noonan has launched a new specialist business unit focusing on the transport sector in Great Britain.
Bidvest Noonan substantially increased its position in the transport sector by acquiring Cordant Services, a business with an extensive client portfolio and decades of experience supporting the sector. Today, the company supports many of the UK’s largest bus and rail operators and is a market leader for cleaning, security and support services. Colin Marshall, a long-serving member of the Cordant Services Leadership team and a transport sector expert, has been named Managing Director for the new business unit.
Operating nationwide across the UK, Bidvest Noonan estimates that it supports over 1.5 billion journeys annually. The services it provides to clients in the transport sector include cleaning, security, shunting, refuelling, sanitising and many more. The business aims to cement its leadership position in the sector and establish a strong platform for its continued growth and development.
“I am delighted that we are investing in our transport sector business, and I am honoured to lead this business as Managing Director. We have built the expertise, resources and infrastructure we need to provide world-class value and support to our clients.”
As people go back to work and we enter a time when travelling numbers continue to rise, we recognise that the public transport network is critical to our country. We will continue to be there for our customers and the public 24/7, making the vehicles, stops, stations & facilities across the network operate in safe & clean working conditions.
We continually electrostatically spray and fog each of the thousands of vehicles we clean ensuring they have the maximum protection against COVID-19. We also carry out a range of Touch Point Cleaning to ensure all high-traffic areas and most commonly used surfaces, like handrails and ticket machines, are continuously cleaned to ensure the safety of all passengers on the networks we support.
Due to the unique flexibility of our industry-leading portal, MyBidvestNoonan, we have adapted our data capture capability to integrate the new processes and techniques that we now deliver in this post-COVID world to ensure our solutions continue to measure, monitor and give our customers real-time data.
We have been stepping up our game when it comes to helping out the environment and combatting climate change. We have introduced a range of measures including our chemical-free cleaning technology and have increased the use of our ‘green’ chemicals; cleaning chemicals that are much safer for the environment.
