Diamond Facilities Support lands Speedy deal

11 December 17

Diamond Facilities Support has signed a six-figure deal to service one of the UK’s leading hire providers.


Speedy Services, which provide a range of services from plant hire to the sale and hire of tools and specialist equipment to businesses and the general public, has enlisted Diamond Facilities Support to service over 200 of their depots around the UK and Ireland.


The on-going agreement will see Diamond Facilities Support provide Speedy Service’s depots with reactive and quoted works, and access to their rapidly growing 24-hour helpdesk.


Speedy Services was founded more than 40 years ago and now has a range of over 2400 products in their catalogue while also diversifying into other services such as safety training, fuel management and event management.


Adam Atkins, joint managing director at Diamond Facilities Support, said: “This long-term deal sees our business breaking into the hiring sector for the first time after winning an extremely competitive tender process.


“We have won a number of contracts this year in the charity, retail and leisure sectors to help us reach our end of year target of £9 million turnover, but working with Speedy Services is one of our biggest deals yet.”


“Breaking into new sectors is key to helping us grow as a business, and we look forward to working with Speedy over the coming years.”


Simon Knapton – Speedy Group Facility and Project Manager UK & Ireland, added: “We were looking for a facilities management supplier that could deliver planned and reactive maintenance via innovative and cost effective delivery methods throughout our wide-ranging depot network in the UK and Ireland. Diamond Facilities Support ticked all of those boxes for us.


“The partnership is one we are hoping to evolve and develop by continuously reviewing both the performance and the strategic vision of the parties via robust key performance indicators and service level agreements.”
