Who we are

NECS are a team of commercial cleaners that are rigorously focused on satisfying customer needs. This team is then guided and inspired by a management team of individuals that can be referred to as leaders, not just managers. At NECS we provide the best contract cleaning, commercial cleaning and facility management services Nationally across the UK because of our excellent managerial team that motivate and train the workforce.

The first NECS branch to open was our Newcastle office, offering cleaning services to the whole of the North East. We then opened our Leeds Branch, followed by our Manchester branch in 2010. In 2013, we launched our West Midlands business venture and opened our Birmingham branch. Our latest venture was our Scotland branch, operating across Edinburgh, Glasgow and right across the central belt. We have now in 2017 opened our London Office in Richmond to service London and the South Coast.

The NECS Team

By possessing high-quality managers we are proud to employ a workforce that is well motivated and far superior to standard cleaners. We have been able to put together such a motivated company because of the faith we show in our Area Managers and the generous incentives we offer.


Managing Director, Gary set-up the business in January 2006 and has been involved in the day to day running ever since. Although involved in the business since its inception, Leigh left a successful career in the police to work full time for NECS in 2009.
