About Us

Our History

Royal Mail Property & Facilities Solutions can trace its roots back to 1989 when it was a division of the Post Office and originally created to provide dedicated facilities and engineering related services to the Royal Mail Group.

  • In 2000, Romec was launched as a fully-fledged facilities management company
  • In 2002, a joint venture was created between Balfour Beatty Workplace, part of the Balfour Beatty Group, and Royal Mail.
  • In 2013, Balfour Beatty sold its 49% share of Romec to Engie, through its primary brand Cofely.
  • In 2016, Royal Mail bought Cofely’s 49% share in Romec and Romec became a wholly owned Royal Mail business.
  • In 2017 the Romec and Royal Mail Group Property companies combined and are known  as ‘Royal Mail Property & Facilities Solutions’.

Safety and Environment

Safety

We work to manage safety risks  and empower people to take ownership of their own well-being. With this in mind we focus our annual safety training on the areas identified as highest risk, as follows: 

  • Working at Height - In 2016 our Annual Safety Training focussed on this area to remind employees of the correct control measure to take when working at height.
  • Manual handling - In 2015-16 we engaged with a specialist training provider,  to train the workforce in the correct manual handling techniques which are refreshed annually.    

Keeping employees healthy is also crucial to our people strategy. Mental health has been a major focus for us in 2016–17 which saw the company commit to the 'Time to Change' pledge with Mind, which aims to remove the stigma and raise awareness of mental health conditions.

Environment

Managing our use of natural resources is a commercial and environmental imperative, which underpins our environmental strategy. Our significant environmental aspects and impacts define our key aims, as follows: 

  • Energy: Reducing our energy use in fleet and property to cut greenhouse gas emissions, in support of Royal Mail's carbon reduction targets.
  • Waste: Minimising the amount of waste we create and improving our management of waste generated. 
  • Water: Reducing our demand for water and the amount of water that is lost or wasted on our premises. 
  • Suppliers: Working with our suppliers to address our direct and indirect environmental impacts
