UFMCO wins maintenance deal for 153 villas
Doha, December 16, 2012
Qatar’s United Facilities Management Company (UFMCO) has been awarded its first three-year maintenance contract with Qatar Vinyl Company to provide electrical, plumbing and civil services for 153 villas.
UMFCO will supply round-the-clock mechanical, electrical and civil maintenance for 113 villas located in the Mesaieed area and 40 villas located throughout Doha, a statement said.
“With our dedicated workforce and experienced professionals we are confident to serve this new residential portfolio,” Brad Robbins, UMFCO general manager said.
The contract win follows earlier successes when the firm was chosen to provide comprehensive maintenance services to various precincts at The Pearl-Qatar, a man-made Island located 350 meters offshore of Doha.
The facilities management company has received a number of high-level quality management accreditations: VQMI (Velosi Quality Management International) compliance certificates for ISO 14001:2004 for its Environmental Management System, ISO 9001:2008 for its Quality Management System and OHSAS 18001: 2007 for its Occupational Health & Safety System.
The three accreditations cover a range of services UFMCO provides, including facilities management, environmental services, waste management, industrial cleaning, infrastructure engineering and landscaping.
Formed in March 2011, UFMCO’s core business is the delivery of facilities management services. Geared initially to servicing The Pearl-Qatar, the company plans to expand gradually over time to major cities in Qatar, as well as to countries throughout the Mena region, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
