Farnek has scooped four facilities management (FM) contracts in the Emirates, with a combined value of $2.96m (AED10.87).

The deals will see the UAE-based FM firm deliver services to Du, Cummins, Mashreq Bank, and Gold & Diamond Park.

Under the terms of the contracts, Farnek will deliver cleaning, maintenance, and manpower outsourcing services to the companies.

Commenting on his company’s latest awards, Markus Oberlin, CEO of Farnek, said: “These contract wins are a great testament to the broad range of expertise we offer from cleaning and manpower outsourcing to MEP [mechanical, engineering, and plumbing] and waste management consultancy, adding credibility to our claim of being a total FM company.

“Given the nuances within different industry sectors, it is also gratifying to win contracts in retail, banking, telecoms and mechanical engineering,” he added.

Farnek’s one-year contract with UAE telecoms provider Du will involve the provision of 27 members of clerical staff across 62 branches. The outsourced staff members will provide clerical and administrative support services to Du’s existing employees.

Dubai’s Gold & Diamond Park has signed a one-year contract with Farnek for cleaning, maintenance, landscaping, generator, and waste management consultancy. 32 cleaners and 15 maintenance engineers will be deployed as part of the deal.

Farnek will provide 45 cleaners and maintenance engineers to support Cummins. The workers will deliver cleaning, MEP, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and elevator maintenance services at the engine manufacturer’s five UAE branches. The FM firm will also manage third-party contracts for landscaping and pest control at the sites.

Meanwhile, Mashreq Bank has commissioned Farnek to carry out HVAC maintenance services for 56 of its branches: 34 in Dubai, 10 in Abu Dhabi, and 12 across Sharjah and the Northern Emirates. The year-long deal will involve the full-time deployment of eight engineers.

“Working with the banking sector demands flexibility to perform services outside of traditional working hours; something Farnek is familiar with, having sealed many long-term partnerships with banks in the region. Similarly, facilities management within a retail environment requires a solid understanding of zones and mission-critical assets, which ensures customer satisfaction on multiple levels of the operation,” Oberlin concluded.
