Rundles re-appointed in Newham

By CreditMan Monday, September 26, 2011

Rundles long standing client relationship with the London Borough of Newham has been further extended after successfully submitting a tender to supply bailiff services to the Borough for the next 4 years.

The contract awarded to Rundles covers the recovery of Council Tax, Business Rates and Sundry Debts until 2015 and continues an evolving partnership that will have spannedfor at least a decade at the conclusion of this latest agreement. Rundles has provided impressive recovery rates for the Olympic Host Borough since 2004 and this latest contract further strengthens the company’s portfolio of clients in London and the South East.

The Borough itself is situated just 5 miles east of the City of London - Newham has one of the highest ethnic minority demographics in the UK and one of the youngest populations too.

Newham has embarked on a major phase of development in recent years, particularly since being chosen as the Host Borough for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.The new Westfield Shopping Centre, which opened earlier this month, is the largest urban shopping centre in Europe and also shares its postcode with the Olympic park. These two introductions alone, along with a number of other impressive developments, have led to a vast increase in jobs and visitors to the area.

Speaking about a campaign to get tougher on Council Tax evaders however, Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales recognised that collection of outstanding debt is necessary to further improve the services provided by the Borough.

This latest acquisition continues a fantastic period of expansion for Rundles, which has seen the company secure a number ofnew contracts and successful re-appointment at many other Local Authorities. Contracts issued by the London Boroughs of Southwark, Camden and Tower Hamlets in the last 12 months are just some of those won by Rundles, which boasts a strong client base throughout the country. In early 2011, Rundles also underwent a complete company rebrand to further promote its ever-growing status in the enforcement industry.

“We are delighted to be re-appointed as a service provider to the London Borough of Newham,” said Managing Director Chris Rundle. “The Borough is thriving in these exciting times and Rundles is proud to have been a partner during this rapid period of development and beyond.

“Improving existing client relationships is of great importance to Rundles as it is testament to the services we provide over a consistent and sustained period. We never rest on our laurels however, and we will continue to improve our services provided to Newham by evolving our latest enforcement techniques and technologies as part of this contract.

I am delighted that the long standing partnership between Rundles and Newham will continue for more than ten years and hopefully long after that.”
