A new branding for ‘disruptive’ outdoor estates services company
GRITIT Group has re-launched under a new brand as OUTCO – a name it says reflects its ‘evolution into the UK’s leading outdoor estate compliance expert’, with a ‘new and unique’ service offering.
Following the recent acquisition of surfacing and engineering business, NMC Group, it says the OUTCO brand reflects its ‘unparalleled breadth of expertise’, which includes a full range of ‘technology-enabled’ infrastructure, winter, and grounds compliance services. It said: “An industry first, OUTCO’s unique combined service offering provides a new way for customers to manage outdoor assets by bringing together multiple outdoor services to ensure enhanced outdoor estate safety, compliance, and commercial efficiency.”
Recently appointed OUTCO CEO, Andy Barry, said: “The effective management of a company’s outdoor estate can be complex and time-consuming for a business. What we now bring to our clients is a new way of working – a full range of outdoor estate management services procured under a single contract. Having one company managing your entire outdoor estate simplifies the whole process and saves time, effort, and ultimately, costs. Beyond this, the synergies between services drives real value. Our clients will benefit from a more joined- up and proactive approach to risk management and compliance, powered by our leading-edge technology. This ensures greater transparency of both opportunities and risks across sites, more accountability, and better service – ultimately a better and safer experience for our clients, customers, and staff.”
OUTCO says its patented technology provides real-time visibility on service delivery –‘offering data driven assurance that issues are being resolved, with critical detailed evidence to demonstrate compliance, while simultaneously generating internal operational efficiency gains’. Under the new brand, it will continue to manage over 7,500 sites for some of the UK’s biggest organisations, including Tesco, BP, and the NHS.
Mark Rogerson, Chair of OUTCO said: “The launch of OUTCO reflects the Group’s spectacular transformation, which under Total Capital Partners’ ownership has gone from strength to strength. Generating over £55 m in revenues, OUTCO is a very credible and efficient business, and is proving to be an effective growth and market consolidation platform. Our industry-leading operational performance, driven by our in-house technology solutions, has created something very special for our fast-growing customer base.”
