Once the deal is sealed with the arm of global facilities management provider owned by Brookfield Asset Management it will secure the jobs of up to 2,500 Carillion staff.
The latest boost for Carillion’s army of support services staff comes after Serco yesterday confirmed it had secured a 20% discount on its deal to buy a raft of healthcare contracts. The Carillion board first revealed the planned sale as it battled for survival late last year.
This transaction should secure the jobs of around 1,500 healthcare employees.
BGIS boss Gord Hicks said: “This deal provides continuity of services for a large number of customers providing critical infrastructure within the UK Market.
“Our team is looking forward to engaging both customers and employees in the days ahead to effect the transaction and ensure a smooth transition.”
Mark Marquis, BGIS chief commercial officer, added: “With this transaction, we look forward to building a large presence in the UK facilities management market and providing customers with the same industry leading service and capabilities that we do throughout the globe.”
