New Albany Branch

The work life balance for hundreds of OCS staff just got made a whole lot easier with the opening of a branch in Albany on Auckland's North Shore.

OCS is New Zealand largest facilities services company with over 4000 staff and the Albany branch takes the number of branches nationwide to 24.

OCS NZ Managing Director Gareth Marriott says the new branch will reduce the cost of doing business and allow for better distribution and ultimately ensure it can continue to improve its level of service to clients.

"The establishment of the branch means that the 750 staff currently working in the wider North Shore area can easily access a logistics hub for vehicles, consumables and supervision," Mr Marriott says.

"With the traffic challenges Auckland is facing it was important for OCS to take a longer term strategic view and ensure we are planning for the future."

"It's also about being customer-centric and taking our branch network to where our clients are."

Mr Marriott says the new branch also reinforces one of OCS' key value propositions, their extensive, national branch network.

Existing OCS and Cannon Hygiene business on the North Shore and West Auckland will be serviced from the Albany site, with Auckland Operations manager, Ray Ruan, leading the branch.
