Steve Brown, Mobilisation Manager at PH Jones, said: “PH Jones is delighted to work again with Brighton & Hove City Council. We see the partnership between ourselves and Brighton & Hove City Council as a great opportunity to pick up where we left off in 2016 where PH Jones ran around half of the current contract size for a number of years and very successfully. We have established a local office in Brighton and we look forward to meeting and working with the local community for many years to come. Over the course of the initial part of the contract we plan to roll out Electric Vehicles to our field workforce in keeping with our commitment as a business to become Net Zero from a fleet perspective from 2025. We are extremely excited to establish our partnership and being able to showcase our unrivalled customer service ability and delivery of the highest quality work for our new customer base”
