Cleaning and sanitizing, facility management, multiservices: how do you structure your offer in this field?

As a multiservice business, our mission is offering hospitals, retirement homes, schools and universities - as well as other facilities such as offices and hotels - a 360º service package that meets all their needs.

Therefore, in addition to Clean and Food services, which are the key pillars of Markas Group, over the years we have specialized in providing our clients with integrated facility solutions: from Logistics & Care services that facilitate intra-hospital logistics and patient care, to Facility maintenance services, and personalized hotel Housekeeping services.

How did the pandemic impact your non-food business activities?

Markas collaborates with many hospitals, retirement homes and healthcare facilities - more than 200 clients.

As a result of the pandemic, their needs changed dramatically. We, at Markas, have been there for them in order to offer the right support.

Due to the rapidly growing demand for hospital disinfection and internal logistics services, we have stepped up our activities and put in place all the necessary processes to ensure business continuity, even under really challenging conditions.

Cleaning and sanitizing have been and will continue to be at the heart of virus-related policies. How are you facing this trend in terms of specific services? What kind of requests have you received from your clients for these services?

Thanks to our 30 years' expertise in the healthcare disinfection sector, we were among the first businesses that offered a highly professional disinfection package, including the use of hydrogen peroxide and cleansing agents compliant with the official government guidelines.

We streamlined our sales processes and we offered our service package to various facilities that needed it, including supermarkets, shops and restaurants.

What are your medium-term goals when it comes to facility management services?

Markas' strategy is based on a sustainable growth path for all our divisions and on a true partnership that takes care of our clients' needs in an integrated way.

Our aim is to offer our customers a single specialized contact point for all their facility-related needs and therefore to provide them with the right support so they can fully focus on their main business.
