Support services and construction group Interserve said it has continued to perform well and in-line with expectations, despite mixed market conditions.
The international group, which has a base in West Bromwich, stated in a trading update ahead of its half-year results in August: “We reiterate our guidance for the current year and remain well-positioned to take advantage of further strategic opportunities and to achieve significant medium term growth.”
The group, which took over construction giant RM Douglas, also announced it had won a government contract extension with HM Revenue and Customs and the Department for Work and Pensions.
The facilities services contract, which has been in place since 2004, has been extended to 2014.
Interserve delivers a total of 21 services including cleaning, security, catering, space planning, health and safety, procurement and fleet administration for HMRC and DWP offices in the north east of England, which is home to HMRC’s main site and over 16,000 employees.
The firm was also involved with Birmingham landmarks like Symphony Hall and Spaghetti Junction. Interserve civil government managing director Keith Dorling said: “We look forward to continuing our partnership with HMRC and DWP, as well as further proving our capability to deliver better service levels at a reduced cost.
“Supplying services is about more than just meeting a set of standards. It is about providing the right people, trained in the right way, and working to the right set of values.”
He added that the company has already helped deliver cost savings on the contract.
