REMONDIS operates PPPs with many local authorities both at home and abroad. The group owns a share in 50 public private partnerships in Germany alone, providing services for more than 12 million local inhabitants across 13 German states. Choosing to work with REMONDIS creates many advantages for local authorities.
More than 9,000 people are employed by the PPP companies, in which REMONDIS owns a share.
A PPP with REMONDIS can offer a very wide range of services as the group operates in three different fields of business: recycling, services and water management. REMONDIS has numerous strengths that have a positive impact on the PPP’s everyday business – making it a particularly suitable candidate for a public private partnership.
Our recycling division comprises classic services such as collecting and recycling household waste and operating the plants and facilities needed to do this.
Our services division includes public services such as clearing roads of snow and ice in winter, cleaning roads and maintaining green spaces as well as producing electricity and district heat and landscaping closed landfill sites.
Our water division provides a wide range of services from water management, to maintaining sewer networks, all the way through to managing technical and commercial operations.
One of the main arguments in favour of working with REMONDIS is its comprehensive portfolio of services that includes diverse fields of business. Its extensive experience of providing classic public services plays a vital role here as well. Moreover, the group’s facilities are also a key factor as it operates a network of 800 plants covering a wide range of treatment and recycling processes.
REMONDIS has over 500 branches in Germany and operates in every single German state. Thanks to its decentralised structure and its nationwide network, REMONDIS has local knowledge of all areas and regions in the country – an important factor for creating strong regional ties and gathering information about local customer requirements.
REMONDIS considers innovations to be vital for its company’s success and so carries out intensive research and development work. This can also be seen by the fact that, compared to its competitors, REMONDIS invests an above-average amount of money in its business.
Working together in partnership: REMONDIS’ comprehensive technical and organisational know-how and its in-depth knowledge of the markets make it an ideal partner for a PPP.
What is noticeable at REMONDIS is its consistency – something that is hugely important for long-term partnerships. Being a family-run company, REMONDIS has proven to be an extremely reliable partner, planning and acting across generations. The continuity resulting from this is reflected in the company’s history, in the growth it has enjoyed as well as in its management team. Over half of all the managers have been working for the company for 16 years or more. Moreover, the economic stability of the group is safeguarded by its high equity ratio of more than 40 percent.
REMONDIS helps to secure jobs and to grow the workforce in PPPs as well. Special mention should be made here to the fact that we always pay our employees in accordance with wage agreements to ensure they are paid a fair salary. Our workforce in Germany has tripled since 2000. The ratio of apprentices and trainees at our company lies at 4.7% – considerably higher, therefore, than the industry average.
Providing public services has always played an important role at REMONDIS. Besides its work in PPPs, the group delivers an extensive range of services in Germany via classic public procurement contracts. This includes, for example, carrying out the kerbside collection of household waste for a total of 11.5 million local residents. Our public sector clients here comprise 75 towns and districts as well as around 50 rural districts.
REMONDIS has been delivering services for the public sector since 1959; the group’s first public private partnership was established in 1987.
The results of a customer survey show in black and white just how much REMONDIS is appreciated by its public sector clients. According to the survey, municipal customers gave the way REMONDIS provides its services an average grade of ‘1.94’, i.e. ‘good’ to ‘very good’. This high satisfaction rate was further confirmed by the high results awarded in the individual categories, ‘reliability’ and ‘expertise’ – two qualities that are particularly important for a partnership.
