Muscat, October 23, 2011
Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions (GWS) has been awarded a major facilities management contract for Shell Oman Marketing Company’s retail and commercial sites in the Sultanate, said its senior official.

In March, Johnson Controls GWS announced its partnership with Shell to manage and maintain 12,000 Shell retail sites in 27 countries. Oman is an additional country to that agreement, with Johnson Controls GWS delivering services from October 4.
Shell Oman Network delivery manager, Hafidh Al Azkawi said: “We look forward to the global experience of Johnson Controls delivered with an Omani touch at a local level. The contract will no doubt benefit our customers who can now look forward to well maintained sites which offer greater convenience and safety for them.'
'This will help us achieve our retail vision, which is to be the best in the industry,' he added.
Julie Kimble, Johnson Controls Global Account leader for the Shell retail business, said, 'The Johnson Controls team on the Shell account are all looking forward to delivering our services to Shell retail and commercial sites in Oman, as we have done across the world.
'As facilities management is our core business, we will provide improvements in health and safety, security and environment, and operational excellence to help Shell deliver the best possible customer experience in the country,' she added.-TradeArabia News Service
