The leading multi-service facilities management provider in East Anglia; Vertas Group Limited, has signed a three-year partnership deal with Suffolk’s favourite football team, Ipswich Town Football Club.
After a meeting with senior teams from both organisations it was quickly realised that there were many similarities in the ways in which both ITFC and Vertas operated. Both organisations lead their business dealings with a strong focus on staff and customers; demonstrating key values such as agility, sustainability and consistency.
With the Vertas Group’s considerable experience in public and private sector service delivery and its far ranging portfolio of small and large business clients across East Anglia, alongside the well-loved and trusted ITFC brand it was a key opportunity for both businesses to find ways of working closer together.
The partnership will involve many opportunities for both the club and Vertas Group to mutually work together for the benefit of the wider community, some of which include:
- ITFC nutritionist’s support in creating healthy, ITFC endorsed menus for the Vertas Group catering provided in schools
- Ongoing advertising, promotion in programmes, on the pitch throughout games in the upcoming season and events and joint activities in schools
- Cross-service improvements, key learning from each other in excellent service delivery and customer satisfaction
Ian Surtees, Group Managing Director for Vertas Group Limited, said:
“We are over the moon to be entering into this key partnership with such a well-loved club, not only to those fans living in Ipswich but their supporters across Suffolk and beyond!
“The Vertas Group and ITFC operate as two very large local employers, bringing a huge economy into the area, it is vital that we work together in finding mutual business efficiencies; subsequently improving our service offers to customers.
“Alongside my colleagues here at Vertas Group Limited I look forward to working in partnership with ITFC over the next three years and cannot wait to involve the club in some of our key business activities.”
Ian Milne, Managing Director of Ipswich Town Football Club, said:
“It is clear that there are significant benefits for us to be working alongside such a prominent local company as Vertas. I am sure it is a partnership that will grow over the next three years and prove beneficial to the Suffolk community.”
