Diamond Commercial Cleaning, based at Technology Court on Aycliffe Business Park, is celebrating 10 years in business by appointing two senior managers as it looks to create new jobs and increase turnover. It was launched with a team of 12 and a client base of six companies.
It has since grown significantly, doubling turnover to £400,000 as 53 staff cleans for 80 clients across the North East. Managing Director Beverley Wardrop wants to drive the company forward after promoting two of her cleaners to senior area manager positions, as part of long-term plans to create 10 new jobs and boost turnover to the £500k-mark.
“We’re very proud of the fact we’ve reached the 10-year milestone, which is testament to the professional service we provide” said Beverley. “We’ve earned ourselves an excellent reputation in commercial cleaning, from small offices up to large factories, building our business on customer service and high standards”.
Diamond Commercial Cleaning recovered from a major blow in 2010, when she lost nearly half of her business. She explains: “One of our clients moved to India and at the same time one of our big contracts went to the Netherlands. Overnight we lost £120,000 a year, more than half of the business. “But we managed to pull it back bit-by-bit.” Beverley now aims to develop the company further after promoting Carol Milward and Dawn King from cleaning supervisors to senior area managers who will be looking after key accounts as well as staff. Her aim is to take on another 10 cleaners over the next 12 months and increase turnover by another 25%.
Diamond Commercial Cleaning works for small offices, which only requires a couple of hours a week, right up to large warehouses, medical centres, engineering and manufacturing companies.
The firm also cleans a leading North East aviation company, and is on the NHS supplier list, including the breast clinic and doctor’s surgery at the PCP in Newton Aycliffe.
“All work is carried out to a high standard with quality and health and safety audits carried out on a regular basis, which is why most of our business comes through recommendations.”
Diamond Commercial Cleaning is NHS approved and all work is COSHH assessed. Managers and supervisors are trained in first aid and staff are trained to NVQ level 2.
