Sustainability is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
We utilise this concept in all of our strategic thinking and in our day-to-day management of the business. Not just complying with our legal obligations and accreditations, but more importantly running the company in line with our social obligations.
Among the initiatives to make our business more sustainable is the introduction of the ‘Tersano’ magic water system. We offer this to our new customers who are interested in reducing the amount of chemicals used in cleaning.
What makes us different?
It’s all about building the relationship. We invest the time in our customers to fully understand your needs.
Every person in the business is responsible for providing a service that is responsive, hassle free and professional.
The business is only as good as the people we employ. We want the best people, properly trained, well supported and fully appreciated.
We expect ourselves to achieve excellence in all we do. And we always seek to improve.
In line with our Company Values we like to give our staff the opportunity and time to help those less fortunate than ourselves. There are several things that we enjoy doing.
We are a proud supporter of the Poppy Appeal. In association with the Royal British Legion, we raise funds for this very worthy cause. Our staff man a collection point at Asda in Redditch in November, and we also raise funds throughout the year through placement of collection boxes at some of our major sites. In 2016, we raised £5,000 for Poppy Appeal and in 2017 we collected a whopping £7,000+. We welcome help from our customers; if you’re interested in providing support, please speak to Finnian Brown at our Head Office on 0121 693 1503.
We run an annual charity garden fete, in aid of a nominated charity. Each year this event raises about £2,000. This is planned and run by our hardworking team at the Birmingham office. If you’d like to attend this year, please speak to Marianne Barber.
