A COMPANY from Selkirk has cleaned up by winning the contract to continue supplying products to one of Britain's biggest holiday firms.

RP Adam has secured a five-year deal to provide cleaning products to Bourne Leisure, who operate Butlins, Haven and Warner Leisure Hotels.

The Riverside-based cleaning and detergent manufacturer already supplied detergents, disinfectants and sanitisers to the popular holiday group.

But this new five-year contract is described as 'significant' by bosses.

UK Operations Director Lee-Anne Gillie told the Border Telegraph: “This deal is significant in so many ways for our business, and I am delighted that RP Adam will continue to work with Bourne Leisure for the foreseeable future.

"We have enjoyed a long-term partnership with Bourne Leisure and its companies over the years, having first started supplying Butlins in Ayr as far back as 1993.

"We have held the Bourne Leisure contract for the last four years, and to get this kind of long-term future commitment from a business of their stature and scope is testament to the fact we deliver on our 2013 tender promises, providing an unmatched level of service and quality product.”

Around four million holidaying families stay at Bourne Leisure holiday parks and hotels each year.

The group has been one of the best performing UK leisure operators over the past 20 years, employing more than 13,000 staff in its peak season with an annual turnover in excess of £900 million.

Mel Jeffrey, head of purchasing at Bourne Leisure, added: “Our team love the RP Adam products.

"But I also think that this contract extension is also largely due to the great service and support that our resort teams receive.

"It all comes down to trust - and our team trust that the products will work well, and that the Arpal team will be there to provide the service, back-up, support and training required. That is what we truly value.”

RP Adam Ltd is a fourth-generation family-owned company employing over 80 people across the UK.

Last year its Selkirk-based manufacturing plant benefited from a £400,000 investment, to increase capacity by 40 per-cent in line with increased business growth.

The expansion of the Selkirk plant is part of the company’s five year investment and growth programme, which sets out a £20 million turnover target to be reached by 2020.

Max Adam, RP Adam’s sales and marketing director, added: “What makes this deal so pleasing is that this forms part of our longer-term supply chain security planning so that our 20-20 growth strategy becomes ever more achievable.

“At the last count our renegotiations over the last 12 months total nearly £16 million to 2020, which is hugely important for us as a business as we continue to invest in people, plant and legislation compliance”.
