Mattie O’Grady Head of Cleaning Mount Charles ROI, Fiona O’Connor Estates Department Administrator SETU, and David Buckley Eastate Manager SETU Carlow with members for the cleaning staff who received their certificates at SETU Carlow.

Award-winning FM support services firm Mount Charles has been awarded a multimillion-pound, three-year contract by Ireland’s South East Technological University (SETU) at sites in Munster and Leinster.

The contract worth €2.16 million includes portering and cleaning services at the Main Carlow Campus, South Sports Campus, and Wexford Campus (Summerhill Campus and the Art and Design Campus) including all buildings, sports pitches and stands, car parks and recreational areas.

With well over 50 years experience in higher education, research, innovation, and stakeholder collaboration, SETU has evolved out of the Institutes of Technology at Waterford and Carlow.

This contract is a huge win for the Mount Charles team as the regional university houses more than 18,000 students and employs at least 1,500 staff campuses across the south-east of the Republic of Ireland in Carlow, Wexford, Waterford, Wicklow, and Kilkenny. But it doesn’t stop there, it also has huge ambitions to grow the student and staff numbers by 2032 to 25,000 students and 2,000 staff by 2032.

Gavin Annon, Mount Charles’s sales and marketing director, shared his thoughts on the win: “This contract further cements Mount Charles’s reputation as a leading service provider in ROI, providing soft services in a sustainable manner which brings long term benefits to both parties. We very much look forward to working with the team at SETU.”
