Coor signs agreement with Novozymes in Denmark

Needs-based maintenance, advanced technology and long-term partnership based on close cooperation were essential when Novozymes requested tenders for operation and maintenance of their facilities in Denmark. Coor´s tender won.

Coor has won a five-year contract with Novozymes, a global leader in biology, on development and delivery of operating and maintenance for Novozymes 275,000 sqm. buildings in Bagsværd, Kalundborg and Fuglebakken in Copenhagen.

Previously, Novozymes outsourced all property services to a variety of suppliers, but the choice of Coor as strategic partner fulfils the company´s new strategy for the operation and maintenance of their properties.

-       Several parameters made Coor the top choice. With Coor´s Energy Management solution we expect to be able to optimize energy in our buildings and lower the energy usage, not least by a behavioral change among our 2,600 employees in Denmark. But the most important aspect was a partnership where we can benefit from mutual learning in close cooperation. In addition to this, we also see a great strength in the overall data picture we now will get as basis for strategic decisions, René Jacobsen, Facility Manager, EMEA & Global Security Officer at Novozymes.

The delivery to Novozymes starts on May, 1. Coor in Denmark will hire 15 – 20 new employees to the assignment.

-       We’re so pleased about this assignment. Coor is the Nordic market leader in integrated facility management (IFM), but in the last few years, has also started to focus on property services, cleaning and food & beverage segments. We’ve sharpened our offering in these segments, and this assignment advances our positioning in hard FM, commented Jørgen Utzon, President of Coor Denmark.
