Spend on new and refurbished equipment set to increase productivity and gear contract cleaning specialist for future growth. In a bid to further improve productivity, service delivery and employee retention rates, leading UK contract cleaning specialist TC Contractors (tel: 01737 814016 or visit www.tc-contractors.co.uk) has announced plans to invest some £5 million in high performance commercial cleaning equipment. This key move follows a number of significant new business wins and is set to gear the company for future aggressive growth within the retail, leisure and office markets.
After an in-depth review of the cleaning equipment market, Surrey-based TC is currently implementing a series of trials to determine which manufacturers it will eventually select as preferred suppliers. However, in line with a strict environmental policy, the company is likely to choose a mix of new and refurbished machinery.
The £5 million investment will cover a wide range of cleaning solutions including scrubber dryers; vacuums; sweepers; rotary machines; steam cleaners and foam pressure washers.
Kevin Meighan, Commercial Director, TC Contractors says: “TC Contractors is determined to provide clients with the best possible service by ensuring our cleaning operatives work with the most up to date and versatile equipment available.
“We firmly believe this latest investment will lead to huge paybacks in terms of reduced employee turnover rates, as well as increased productivity and operating efficiencies.”
Alongside its normal core cleaning, TC offers a wide range of specialist services including carpet cleaning; builders cleans for new facilities or post refurb; graffiti and chewing gum removal; high level and cladding; and diamond floor polishing for maximum cleanliness and shine.
Established almost 50 years ago, TC Contractors is still a family-owned business and achieves a turnover of approximately £48 million. It is ISO9001 and ISO14001 accredited, employs over 3,800 people and cleans some 550 premises across a wide range of markets with a strong focus on retail, office and pub, club and leisure facilities.
