The Amey team has shown a strong commitment to understanding our business needs and to providing a high quality service and we look forward to working with them over the extended period of this contract."

For the past six years Amey has provided QinetiQ with a range of TFM services that include property maintenance, cleaning, conferencing and distribution services.  These are augmented by a specialist portfolio that includes fire services and fire awareness training, aircraft refueling, hazardous waste management, chauffeur services and freight haulage.
