G4S consolidate through WCS Group
G4S have selected WCS Group as a preferred supplier for national water treatment and water hygiene services following a strategic review across its UK portfolio.
Phil Greenwood, WCS Group CEO commented: “It wasn’t an easy review for G4S who were looking to find critical service partners in water capable of servicing a diverse portfolio in every corner of the UK – from major hospitals, HM prisons, airports, schools, commercial buildings, shopping centre and so-on. We demonstrated a close ‘fit’ with the G4S portfolio and communicated how we would help G4S service its customers. We offered to bring new innovations such as Remote Monitoring and Solid Chemicals, and communicated how we could help transform transparency in service and outcome.”
