Supporting Johnson Matthey Clitheroe

AM Services Group has been working with Johnson Matthey in Clitheroe at their main UK manufacturing base in Lancashire’s Ribble Valley since 2013. At the site, catalyst products are manufactured, which are supplied to customers around the globe in the chemicals, oil, gas and agrochemicals industries.

Bringing the best in health and safety

As a Top Tier UK COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 2015) site, compliance is top of the agenda for Johnson Matthey and the business works hard to embed health and safety in its culture to support its aspiration of zero harm. After a long and competitive tender process, which included an in-depth audit of AM Services Group’s management systems, policies and capabilities with a particular focus on health and safety, the company was awarded the contract to provide security and cleaning services across the extensive site.

A partnership that works

Since the contract began, this has been subject to regular internal review and the quality of service provided by AM Services Group over the years has given Johnson Matthey sufficient confidence to extend the soft services contract without a further tender process. Early in 2018 AM Services Group was awarded a contract to provide another two years’ security and cleaning services.

AM Services Group delivers cleaning across all areas of the site and the 24/7 security service includes access control for all employees, visitors, contractors and deliveries, as well as CCTV monitoring.

Mark Stanley, engineering manager for Johnson Matthey, commented: “We’re continually impressed by the knowledge and dedication of the security and cleaning team, as well as the proactive management of the contract to deliver service efficiency and clearly demonstrate value. The staff deliver a strong, professional service and the AM Services Group team actively strives to continue to enhance the service, striking the perfect balance with quality and cost. As a top-tier COMAH site, it is essential that the 24/7 manned guarding, access control and CCTV monitoring security services are robust. However, the AM Services Group security team have the experience to set exactly the right tone, matching attention to detail with a friendly face and helpful manner.”
