And the company has also secured a contract to provide hospital cleaning services at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology in Lisbon (IPO).
Volkswagen's Autoeuropa plant in Portugal
Ferrovial Serviços, the Portuguese subsidiary of Ferrovial Services, was recently chosen by Volkswagen (VW) to advise its infrastructure team in the supervision of all non-assembly subcontracts at its Portuguese plant, known as Autoeuropa. Work commenced in July. For the next three years, Ferrovial Serviços will supervise the maintenance, cleaning, gardening, inspection and emergency intervention contracts at the plant. Professionals are assigned to work on a shift basis to ensure a 24-hour presence at the plant.
Volkswagen Autoeuropa is one of the Volkswagen Group's automotive assembly plants. It is located in the Palmela region, and was inaugurated in 1995. The plant is the largest direct foreign investment ever made in Portugal and it has a very positive impact on the national and regional economy.
Hospital cleaning at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology, in Lisbon
