- Fixed wire testing;
- Life safety systems;
- Building management systems;
- Lightning protection systems.
On awarding the contract to Mitie, the CEO of London Stansted airport, Andrew Cowan said, “We have been working with Mitie for over seven years and it is a great credit to their team that we are developing our long-standing relationship with this new contract.
“Mitie was awarded the work after a rigorous and technical tender process. Mitie has extensive experience in the sector, and an ability to provide national 24/7 coverage underpinned by advanced technology.”
The Managing Director of Mitie, Phil Holland said, “We are proud to be building upon our relationship with MAG through this new and consolidated contract.
“Our long running relationship is a testament to our market leading airport experience and we are confident that our expansive technology-led service capability will assist MAG in providing a world-class experience for its passengers and airline partners.”
