The Fenny Lock site in Milton Keynes, for example, processes over 25,000 inbound pallets a week and despatches more than 38,000 roll cages to eight other Tesco depots.
About 800 staff are employed in the warehousing and office facilities, the centre covers more than 650,000ft2 and operates 24/7.
Ecocleen operates with a team of almost 90 staff spread over three shifts every day, with an intensive deep clean programme scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.
Paul Middleton, MD of Servest Retail and Leisure says: "When we started our first Tesco Distribution Centre, it was an incredibly difficult and steep learning curve. I believe our success is due to a stable, long term operations management team.
Key managers have a stake in our business and therefore a vested interest in our success and growth.' Ecocleen was subject to a management buyout in 2003 and acquired the Sherwood Group in 2008. Both are now rebranded under the South African based Servest Group that employs more than 30,000 people worldwide. Servest is a multi service provider supplying cleaning, waste management, landscaping, pest control, washroom, maintenance, security and specialist services.
