Usiminas Renews and Expands Contract with ISS Brazil

Usiminas renews and expands contract with ISS Brazil

ISS has renewed the contract to deliver quality services for Usiminas, the Brazilian market leader in the steelwork industry.

Usiminas is one of the largest steelwork groups in Latin America, with an annual production capacity of 9.5 million tons of crude steel, and presence in seven Brazilian states.

The cooperation between Usiminas and ISS in Brazil began three years ago with a cleaning contract. Over the time, new service lines have been added to the contract and ISS is now responsible for a full portfolio of activities, delivering cleaning, maintenance, pest control, support and landscaping services.

Carlos Alberto Ferreira, COO of ISS Brazil
, said:-The extension and expansion of this contract certifies the quality and the hard work done over the last years, and is also a clear sign of the increased maturity of the Brazilian market. It would be impossible to a client of this size and complexity to consider large-scale service integration a couple of years ago. Now, we are already discussing what is going to be the next steps.

Moisés Agostinho Gomes, Shared Services Manager for Usiminas, said:
– ISS has delivered services to the Ipatinga unit since January 2009 and proposed an innovation to the supplier department. They proposed a master agreement covering all business units. This idea was developed internally and became reality in 2012. Usiminas sees this project as a very successful partnership and that is the reason for this renewal and expansion.

To service Usiminas, ISS has an operational team composed of 812 professionals working at 20 sites of the steel complex. The implementation program for this new phase of the contract started in November 2013 and has continued during first quarter of 2014.
