The Winvic Operations Manager on the Ocado unit at SLPP, Mick Bracken stated: “When we secure a project with a client that we have worked with before (like SEGRO) it gives the team a real boost, as it provides validation that that Winvic is delivering incredible work.

“Furthermore, working with a new end-user is substantially motivating as it brings with it an opportunity to forge new relationships, where we can demonstrate our commitment to The Winvic Way and exceeding expectations.

“The project team are looking forward to showing Ocado what it means for a main contractor to be focused on doing the right thing and delivering an ever improving quality of service and product, responsibly, ethically and safely.”
