A sports company from Essex has won three contracts which will see its services extending further across the UK than ever. In the last week, it has won contracts to install and service sports equipment in 100 schools in the London Borough of Bexley, 10 in Lancashire and eight in Liverpool – and the company prides itself on never losing a contract when they come to be renewed.

Sportsafe UK has created 5 new jobs by winning 3 new contracts since the beginning of this year, and now sells, installs and services sports equipment for 11,000 customers from Shetland to Bournemouth. The company won a Colchester Business Award in 2007 for its excellent standard of service.

Managing Director Jon Neill says, “Each of these contracts is for a number of years, but we’ve never yet lost a contract when it’s come to renewing, so I hope we’ll be visiting all three places for many years to come. We employ all our engineers directly – we don’t subcontract – so when someone calls us, they’ll be talking to the people who do the work. That’s how we guarantee quality.

“As well as installations and servicing, we recycle equipment, too, so that schools can get reconditioned equipment they might not otherwise be able to afford. The scheme covers East Anglia at the moment, but we’re aiming to make it nationwide this year, so everyone can benefit.”
