GARY BREACH: A REFLECTION ON 2021
Gary Breach, our Managing Director, reflects on 2021 and provides an insight into what he anticipates 2022 holds for NECS and the cleaning industry.
How would you summarise 2021?
Overall, it is safe to say that whilst 2021 brought many highlights and successes, it also brought new challenges. For example, due to industry and market changes during the pandemic, sourcing and recruiting new employees was more difficult than in previous years. As a business our focus was on providing clear communication and the best level of service to our customers, to support them through these challenging times.
What’s been your biggest business highlight over the past 12 months?
A big business highlight in 2021, was our fifteenth anniversary. The anniversary prompted us to reflect on our business journey and it’s great to see how far we have come.
At our inception in 2006, we traded as North East Cleaning Services, and our work was focused predominantly on retail and leisure businesses in the North East of England. Thanks to the hard work of our employees as well as our philosophy of providing high-quality cleaning services at competitive prices and in a prompt timeframe, we have grown to a nationwide provider of professional commercial cleaning services, specialist cleaning services, and facilities management services.
