Servest Seals Stay at Super Cheap Clothing Superstore

Following a competitive tender process, Primark has awarded a three-year extension to Servest on its cleaning contract.

Primark, which is renowned for selling ultra cheap imported clothing from countries that don't apply the same labour laws as found in the UK, has, unsurprisingly, not extracted a Living Wage commitment from its contractor.

Servest will deliver daily cleaning services to Primark’s 165 stores in the UK. All janitorial functions, washroom consumables and window cleaning duties are to be undertaken across the sites.
