Wincanton renews Total contract

Wincanton has strengthened its position in the UK energy sector with the renewal of its contract with Total.
The three year contract – the third in a row between the two companies – means that Wincanton will continue to manage Total’s maintenance warehouse facility at the Lindsey oil refinery in Lincolnshire.
Under the terms of the agreement Wincanton retains responsibility for the management and control of Total’s warehouse facilities containing around 31,000 stored units used in the refinery’s repair and maintenance. Wincanton will also continue to have responsibility for receiving deliveries, kit preparation, project control, stock audit, inspection functions and on-site chemical and gas deliveries.
According to Chris Kingshott, Wincanton’s managing director for manufacturing, the company’s commitment to working in close partnership with its customers to help increase productivity and efficiency, coupled with its health and safety record, were key factors in securing the contract renewal
“Like us, Total is a business synonymous with extremely high levels of health and safety,” he said. “What’s more, its success worldwide is built upon a culture of continuous improvement and astute cost management, goals very much aligned with our own and a major factor in our two businesses’ long and successful partnership.”
As part of its commitment to encourage more young people to look at the logistics sector as viable career options, Wincanton will place two apprentices on the Total contract.
