We deliver the Regional Prime and National Housing contracts for the MOD, through the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). These contracts maintain much of the MOD estate in the UK.
This morning Carillion announced it is entering into immediate compulsory liquidation. However, CarillionAmey Limited and CarillionAmey (Housing Prime) Limited are two separate legal entities that operate independently of Carillion.
The terms of the joint ventures’ arrangements mean that Amey will continue the services now that Carillion has announced it is entering into immediate compulsory liquidation. Amey is committed to doing this and ensuring continuity of service to the DIO and MOD and the service men and women in the UK. You can read their full statement here and more details will be published in the coming days.
Both legal entities get paid directly by our customers and we have our own banking facilities, therefore we have no concerns about our ability to continue to operate our businesses and our staff and suppliers will continue to be paid as normal.
For the past few weeks, Amey have been working on detailed contingency plans with the DIO and the Cabinet Office to ensure we can effectively continue to manage our contracts and these are being implemented today.
We can confirm that we are fully prepared to continue the service obligation of our contracts without adverse effect on the employees of the JV or our supply chain.
