Cater Care, a 100% Australian owned and operated company, has been awarded the national catering and facility management services contract for Iluka Resources (ASX: ILU).
The contract, which includes the catering, accommodation and facility management services at four of Iluka’s Australian sites, comes hot on the heels from the retention of a number of large contracts that sees Cater Care extend its position as one of the largest contract operators in Australia.
Chief Operating Officer of Cater Care’s remote division, Denis Andre, is pleased to have been awarded the national contract, particularly having been the incumbent at two of Iluka’s Australian sites. The two new sites at Cataby and Eneabba extends Cater Care’s presence within Western Australia.
“We’re passionate about what we do and we know what’s important to customers, so it’s pleasing to see that the Iluka team have recognised the quality and value our submission represents. We will now expand on the work we’ve been doing at their Jacinth-Ambrosia and Ouyen sites.
Our integrated approach to service delivery means we focus on all aspects of remote life, which we know has its own unique set of requirements. It’s also why we believe we’ll add real value to their two new sites,” Mr. Andre said.
Iluka Head of Business Development Julian Andrews said Cater Care’s submission showed a good understanding of the market and presented a customised solution that met Iluka’s business requirements.
“Cater Care’s submission to bring all of our remote site catering, accommodation and facility management services under one contract was the best we received. Cater Care have shown a commitment to delivering high quality food and services at Jacinth-Ambrosia and Ouyen for the last ten years and we look forward to that continuing at Cataby and Eneabba,” he said.
