Leading synthetic turf maintenance expert Replay Maintenance is celebrating after winning a seven-year, multiple-site contract in the South West to service a range of military sports facilities.
The long-term deal with landscape construction company, Gavin Jones, now part of the nationwide green services provider, Nurture Group, means Replay Maintenance will take care of a variety of artificial sports surfaces at 13 sites.
Predominantly at Naval and Royal Marine bases, with a variety of sports surfaces including sand-dressed hockey pitches, athletics tracks and 3G football surfaces, the sites include Bickleigh Barracks, RMB Chivenor and HMS Excellent in the Plymouth area, HMS Collingwood in Fareham, Hampshire, RNAS Culdrose on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, Britannia Royal Naval College near Dartmouth in Devon, Royal Marine Commando Training Centre at Lympstone in Devon, HMS Rayleigh at Torpoint in Cornwall, RNAS Yeovilton near Yeovil in Somerset, and Norton Manor Camp near Taunton in Somerset.
Replay Maintenance will be drawing on the company’s 20 plus years’ knowledge and expertise to ensure that the sports facilities are in the best condition for His Majesty’s military personnel.
Nick Harris, Replay Maintenance MD said: “We are delighted to have secured the contract to maintain the synthetic surfaces on these sites. Our teams have worked diligently to undertake ad hoc, specialist maintenance on behalf of Gavin Jones. The quality of works done has clearly been favourable in the decision to award the contract to Replay Maintenance for such a lengthy period. With a number of recent strategic partnerships in the South West including The Pitchmark Group, Wiltshire FA and Somerset FA, we look forward to building on our national reputation as the leading synthetic sports turf maintenance specialist.”
Introductions between the two companies were made when Replay Maintenance was contracted by Gavin Jones to undertake a one-off athletics track clean in 2015, using Replay’s trademark Aquatrax process. Since then, Replay Maintenance has continued to build relationships with the team, gradually increasing the ad-hoc processes and being introduced to new facilities. Through these works, Gavin Jones has now entrusted the artificial sports surface maintenance of these 13 sites to Replay Maintenance, with talks for further sites ongoing.
Andy Mighall, Gavin Jones’ Regional Manager said: “In awarding this contract to Replay Maintenance, we are confident that our customers will receive the exceptional quality service that they have come to expect from a Gavin Jones maintained site. We have worked with Replay Maintenance since 2015 and have found the works that they completed have always been delivered to a very high standard. I look forward to working with the team over the coming years in continuing to deliver outstanding service to our customers.”
