Six months into the year and business for 2011 is flourishing for leading provider of highways services, Ringway. Continual success comes after the company implemented a new and effective step-by-step strategic approach to winning tenders.
Last year, Ringway won the Midlands Highways Alliance Framework contract, secured extensions to several of their current long-term service contracts and has been shortlisted for a number of new large term service contracts.
Several of Ringway’s key service contracts have been extended, three of which were extended to the maximum capacity allowed. They have successfully secured Worcestershire County Council until 2014, Wiltshire County Council until 2013, Bracknell Forest until 2015, Peterborough until 2013 and Rutland until 2013.
Chris Connor, newly appointed Term Services Managing Director for Ringway, comments: “It is an exciting time for Ringway. 2010 was a big year for us regarding contracts and we still have the potential to secure more this year after being shortlisted for Hertfordshire County Council and North Yorkshire County Council. We are also currently bidding for two Highways PFI (Private Funded Initiative) tenders with the financial backing of VINCI Concessions, which would include highway related services for over 25 years.”
Ringway are now one of the last two remaining bidders for the London Borough of Hounslow Highways Maintenance PFI projects and is currently in the Detailed Solution (ISDS) stage for the Isle of Wight PFI project.
Chris continues: “Our success is not only due to a new strategic focus put into action, but it is a result of our continued teamwork and dedication. We pride ourselves on our flexible approach, our breadth of expertise, and our strong client partnerships, which enable us to meet and anticipate their needs.”
Ringway also work closely with partners in established joint ventures such as Ringway Jacobs and are shortlisted for both Essex County Council and Cheshire East Council’s integrated services contract.
