HSS Chief Executive Chris Davies, commented: “We’re committed to helping our customers to work safely, efficiently and cost-effectively and this partnership with Gatwick will help to manage and control all onsite equipment requirements with more transparency and operational efficiency that ever before. We also have a good understanding of – and ability to respond to – the unique working environment of the airport, so we are better equipped to deliver against their particular service level requirements”.

Liz Townsend, Head of Procurement at Gatwick added: “For us, it’s important that we continue to improve the airport in the most sustainable way and ensure that we continue to deliver a real word-class welcome and a great passenger experience.  All of our suppliers have a big part to play in this and the innovative equipment solution offered by HSS is another positive step forward in our relentless drive for efficiency, quality and safety, as we transform Gatwick into London’s airport of choice for the future.”
