RFM are delighted to announce our new partnership with Baird Menswear as we commence a new cleaning contract from March 1st at two of the company’s main business sites; the previous factory site turned distribution centre and outlet in Goole, and the characterful and historic head office on Leeds’ Canal Wharfe.
Baird Menswear, also known as BMB Group, have been in operation since 1894, and today are responsible for manufacturing an impressive portfolio of well-known menswear brands including Jasper Conran, Jeff Banks and Ben Sherman to name only a few.
When RFM met with BMB Group they identified they required a facilities provider that could take away the extra pressure of managing a cleaning team on top of their everyday operations. So we plan on providing a bespoke service through our personal account management. All the current cleaning staff are moving across to the new RFM contract with nobody losing their jobs, and extra vacancies have also been created at the Goole distribution centre.
As both sites contain a large amount of quality stock, the focus will be to ensure we protect the garments while also providing the highest of cleaning standards and creating a desirable environment for all the staff. The Old Granary head office includes photography sets and a studio, alongside office work space and is a truly unique space to maintain, which will require special skills from all the cleaning team with a tight training programme.
Jackie Mark, RFM Operations Manager commented on the new contract;
“It was great to go and meet the team and see inside the unique space at Baird’s headquarters. I’m looking forward to working with the staff and welcoming them to RFM Group. We believe the level of service we can provide for our newest client will really benefit their business and are looking forward to the new partnership.”
