Moving Mountains at Midnight...

At midnight on 1st October 2014, UTL took over a major contract, mobilising colleagues over 3 widely dispersed sites. The four people in this outstanding project team played a critical part in the success of this project, and went to extraordinary lengths to ensure the project was managed and delivered within budget and to the agreed timescales.

This was a difficult and complex project with a number of challenges for the team, however the whole team displayed a level of commitment, dedication and real enthusiasm for getting the job done, again clearly demonstrating the Unipart Way behaviours of perfect quality, of deeply understanding the customer's needs, speed and efficiency - beyond a shadow of a doubt.

The team worked seamlessly, role modelling the Unipart Way's positive, can-do attitude, to bring all of our Unipart colleagues together, so that everyone working on this new account knew exactly what they were doing from Day 1. A real example of hitting the ground running, even when faced with external obstacles outside of their control.

The client was so impressed with the outcome of this transition that she commented "Over a number of months, the Unipart Project team and ourselves, together with representatives from the sites, operations, IT, HR and our business, have been planning for excellence and I am pleased to confirm that this is what was achieved. The quality of the plans and of every individual involved resulted in a totally seamless change from both a business and customer perspective, and I would like to recognise each and every member of the teams who made this happen."
