TWO Bletchley companies have won contacts with a big regional housing association based in Ampthill, Bedfordshire.

Jeakins Weir Ltd, in Clarke Road, and FSG Property Services Ltd, in Third Avenue, Denbigh West, have partnered with Aragon Housing Association to carry out maintenance on 6,500 properties.

Aragon has decided not to comment on either the value or the length of the contracts.

Jeakins Weir started the new contract to carry out Aragon’s responsive repairs and maintenance on June 1 while FSG Property Services is now responsible for making sure Aragon’s empty properties are refurbished and ready to be re-let to new residents.

Aragon has procured both contracts as part of a joint exercise with Central Bedfordshire Council.

Bob Hopkins, Aragon’s assistant director – property, said: “Both of these firms are local, small to medium sized companies which offer good customer service, which is of paramount importance to us.

“Their knowledge and hard work will help Aragon to continue to deliver what are already recognised as high standards of customer care.”
