Britain’s Leading Dairy Company

Müller UK & Ireland is Britain’s biggest dairy company, focused on the production of fresh and flavoured milk products, butter, yogurt and chilled desserts in the branded and private label sectors of the category. The business in the UK has an annual turnover of around £2.4bn and employs 12,000 people. Müller manufactures yogurt and dessert products from a single site in Market Drayton, Shropshire. This site stretches over 50 acres and maintaining the grounds is a complex and challenging task.


How We Helped

Prime Facility Services has constructed a detailed annual work delivery plan which lists the frequency of operation against each specific task. Prior to the due date, the relevant tasks are deployed to our operator’s mobile devices. The local Special Works Team leader from Prime will inspect the outputs to ensure the work is being completed to the right standards of quality and safety. Quality reports are then fed back to Muller which forms part of the monthly service review.

Prime now deliver, manage and inspect the following services on this site;

  • Grass Cutting, Maintenance, Edging and Trimming
  • Control of Leaves and Fouling
  • Weed Control of Grassed Areas
  • Weed, Algae and Moss Control in Soft and Hard Landscaped Areas
  • Maintenance of Planted Areas
  • Hedge, Shrub and Rose Maintenance
  • Spring & Summer Bedding Plants


Benefits to Müller

  • A consistent team of local operatives who know and understand the site
  • An annual delivery plan that can be inspected and audited
  • Better value for money
  • Safe working
  • Tidy, clean and more attractive grounds for staff, visitors and customers


Who we worked for

What people say

“We had grown frustrated with the performance of our old grounds contractor and as Prime were already on site we opened discussions with them about taking over. They produced a detailed plan for our site and they have never let us down since taking over.”
