Julius Rutherfoord retains £30m worth of education cleaning contracts in London
Julius Rutherfoord, one of the capital's largest independent cleaning contractors, has retained £30m worth of education cleaning contracts, awarded in the last two months, and spread over the next five years.
The company, which operates in London and the surrounding boroughs, cleans 136 education sites - both in the state and independent education sectors, providing 13,000 hours of cleaning each week to keep staff and pupils alike safe. Across all its sites, it provides close to 30,000 hours of cleaning services each week.
The retentions include City, University of London, which has awarded a three plus two-year contract extension (pictured); London Borough of Merton Schools for the same contract period - covering 48 school sites; All Saints Catholic College and Edmonton County School together with the new SEMH Free School, Salmon's Brook School which are both part of the Edmonton Academy Trust Schools, now called 'Edact'.
Cleaning over 20million sq.ft across its education sites, Julius Rutherfoord is renowned for its quality of service, excellent attention to detail and trusted approach. This can be demonstrated by the firm's meticulous cleaning practices which have ensured that the London Borough of Merton Schools estate it cleans has had no Norovirus outbreaks in the last 12 years.
"The retention of these contracts is testament to the service provided by our amazing cleaning teams," says Chris Jarvis, managing director. "We employ 1,200 cleaning staff who work on these and our other sites. All of them are 100% committed to providing an excellent service to our customers, which is demonstrated by these retentions.
"Some of these contracts have been on our books since 2009, proving the value we add and we look forward to continuing our ongoing relationships with these customers."
Julius Rutherfoord was incorporated in 1994 by two brothers-in-law. With sales now at £25m a year, the company passionately believes that clients should receive a truly professional and high-quality service, one that delivers meticulously cleaned premises, cost-effectively and securely.
