After an incredibly competitive process, MCP Environmental, an asbestos removal firm in based Bradford have successfully secured a five-year contract to begin removing dangerous asbestos from some of Royal Mail’s thousands of properties – some dating back to the 1850s.
To begin with, the Bradford-based firm will work with Royal Mail across their properties in the North, West Midlands and East Anglia. However, the opportunity is present for MCP to become the recently-privatised company’s national contractor.
Chris Roe, MCP’s contract development and big manager said, ‘It’s been a tough competitive process which started back in January last year. We were up against some major national operators and to have won the Royal Mail contract in the face of such strong competition is a really big achievement for us and a major boost for the business’.
Following its success in securing the Royal Mail deal, MCP say they have other potentially-significant deals in the pipeline which will underpin its rapidly growing national reputation.
The company, based at the South Bradford Trading Estate, has an impressive turnover of more than £7 million and easily managed to keep its head above the water during the recent recession.
It is an established contractor to a number of social housing schemes and even the Highways Agency for asbestos checking and removal. It also recently won a prestigious contract with Doncaster Council to assess and remove asbestos in civic buildings and schools.
