Deritend Group wins multi-million-pound framework deals with Severn Trent
Engineering solutions provider Deritend Group has won two major framework deals for Severn Trent and Hafren Dyfrdwy Cyfyngedig.
The company has been awarded the fabrication and mechanical frameworks which means it can provide essential maintenance, repair and replacement services to all clean and waste sites across Cheshire, Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Hafren Dyfrdwy, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire
Located across three sites in the Black Country, Teesside and Bedfordshire, the company expects this work to be worth up to £20m over a potential seven-year period.
Neil Ashwood, framework manager at Deritend, said: “This is a massive achievement for our business and gives us a really strong platform for the business going forward.
“About 30 suppliers were invited to tender for the framework contracts and nine were eventually appointed, which means we have been approved to carry out work across Severn Trent and Hafren Dyfrdwy Cyfyngedig sites.
“This involved site visits for scoping jobs to quote against, completing tender sheets, work scenarios, and completing bid sheets. All of these were marked against stringent criteria and I’m delighted to say we scored highly in all of the six lots we applied for.
“Our skill sets, reputation, capabilities, price and commitment to meeting response times were all cited as key reasons for our successful bids and we’ve already responded by strengthening our framework team with new appointments and investment in new fully equipped vans.”
Chief executive Richard Hale added: “We are often the first sector to emerge from the downturn and this certainly appears the case, with the last six months seeing a number of new contract wins and preferred supplier status secured for the global supplier database IESA.
“The Severn Trent and Hafren Dyfrdwy Cyfyngedig framework wins is a great way to start 2021 and we look forward to using our fabrication and mechanical expertise to deliver essential repair and maintenance services to keep these sites operational.”
