Staffordshire County Council, Amey and Multevo have worked in partnership for over eight years with a commitment to community, team integration and sustainability.
Multevo, who are based in Heaton, Staffordshire are the exclusive UK distributor of the Multihog and also deliver in-house highways, traffic management, civils, arb and vegetation management services across the UK.
Multevo’s first ever highways partnership was working together with Amey and Staffordshire County Council since 2014, with the relationship growing from strength to strength over this time.
Using the productive Multihog equipment, Multevo undertake permanent patch repairs across the county’s network.
The Multihog is a versatile piece of kit and able to switch to other activities such as siding out works, grass cutting and flood water pumping within a couple of minutes.
Additional support services include emergency call outs, winter support, carriageway resurfacing, traffic management and civils.
Darren Corcoran, Principal Operations Manager at Amey comments: “Multevo has worked collaboratively with us for a long time, fully integrated as part of our operational delivery teams.
“They are very adaptive in terms of what we may need at any given point in time and that’s a real strength to have.
“In addition to the operational delivery, Multevo get fully engaged in our social impact activities in Staffordshire, which offer support to the local communities we work with.”
Throughout the duration of the partnership, Multevo has engaged with a number of social value initiatives, including a ‘keep active’ project which involved resurfacing a local bowling green’s car park to make it safer and more accessible for its local community and visitors.
Multevo are now working closely with Amey and Staffordshire County Council to introduce a range of environmental initiatives to cut carbon emissions across the contract. This includes introducing recycled traffic management signage, the use of recycled materials, and trialling electric plants and tools, such as the Hydrovo, as well as chemical free weed control.
Multevo has also recently introduced driver behaviour analytical software. The software monitors driver behaviour including idling, accelerating, and braking, rewarding individuals for efficient driving. This is with the aim to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, whilst influencing positive changes in its employees’ driving habits.
Josh Sweeney, Director of Marketing and Growth, explains the importance of this collaborative partnership: “Working with Amey in Staffordshire was our first ever venture into service delivery and has become our longest serving partnership, as we have maintained and grown this service over time. We are very proud to serve Staffordshire and continue to innovate in collaboration with our forward-thinking partners.”
