NECS’ 10 Year Anniversary
Well, October 2016 marks our 10 year anniversary of being a limited company. We have seen a lot of changes during this time, and it’s been a hell of a ten years to look back on!
In 2006, when I started out as a sole trader and our team of office cleaners in Newcastle took their first steps, we had a total of 4 cleaners and 2 contracts for commercial cleaning in Newcastle and Carlisle. 10 years in, we’ve amassed a team of approximately 200 cleaners, 4 supervisors, 4 area managers and Head Office staff of 6. We’ve certainly grown a lot in this time.
Like any company, we’ve seen our ups and downs, but we always continue to soldier on… we’ve made it this long! Below are just 5 of our main highlights over the last 10 years:
Purchasing our office near Cramlington was a key highlight for us, as this gave us a permanent base, and helped us to grow our Head office and Support Team. We then expanded into two new areas – providing contract cleaning in The Midlands and Scotland. Seeing our little company grow from a cleaning staff count of 4 to an employee countable to stretch further afield was a huge success, leading us towards our goal of national coverage.
We grew our business with our largest single client from 1 office, with 1 cleaner to 25 cleaners operating across 11 factories and offices in the North East.
