Monthind makes further acquisitions in Norfolk
East Anglian cleaning company Monthind has announced the acquisition of two Norfolk-based businesses, securing 45 jobs in the area. From this month, Monthind will take over the commercial cleaning contracts of Stulee Cleaning and Dereham General Cleaning, both of which have been operating since 2009.
"Though this acquisition saw 45 members of staff transferring to Monthind under TUPE regulations, our experience with taking on contracts of this size meant that the whole process was virtually seamless and both our new staff and clients can be assured of business as usual," explains Monthind Managing Director, Tony Clarke.
The new commercial cleaning contracts have been added to the portfolio of clients run from Monthind's Norwich office. While the company already offers a diverse range of services, from public sector and forensic cleaning to pest control and waste management, expanding its service further in to new areas will mark an interesting new development for Monthind.
The company's Business Manager Chris Brown, sees the additional revenue and clients as excellent complements to its growing operations in the Norfolk region. "The office cleaning contracts predominantly cater for areas west of Norwich, where we are seeing significant growth, while the second represents further expansion in to high street window cleaning," he explains.
"We already produce and maintain our own pure water supply from our Norwich depot, so expanding our residue-free window cleaning services in Norfolk is a great new development, which really complements our current contracts in the area."
Tony Clarke concludes: "High quality contracts like these have become a key part of our targeted growth strategy. As Monthind grows, acquisitions give us an extra boost towards maintaining and strengthening our position as one of the largest independent commercial cleaning organisations in East Anglia."
Monthind offers cleaning and janitorial solutions on both a contracted and ad-hoc basis.
Monthind has been established as a business since 1975. After gradually expanding throughout East Anglia, the company now employs 950 members of staff, and serves a wide range of clients from small independent businesses to large public sector organisations such as Essex Police.
In recent years, Monthind has seen a diversification in its service offerings. Developing from a traditional contract cleaning business, the company now additionally provides in-house window cleaning solutions, a full range of specialist cleaning facilities, caretaking operations, property maintenance, concierge services, and even forensic and biohazard cleaning, which involves dealing with crime scenes, road traffic accidents, and soiled police cells, among other complex situations.
