Key Epping contract retained by Gristwood & Toms

Gristwood & Toms has retained its longest-standing management contract with Epping County Council in Essex.

It won the contract from the council's Direct Services Organisation (DSO) in 1997 and has had to re-tender for it ever since. Director Andy Toms said: "This is particularly satisfying because we went through the full tender process against the stiffest of competition. It also safeguards the positions of our Epping team, including two thirds of the crew we inherited from the DSO back in 1997."

Gristwood & Toms has also won two more new management contracts - English Heritage, London Region, which includes trees situated in many of London's landmark sites, as well as a new win in Northampton, which forms part of a framework contract.
