After celebrating a 10-year anniversary in January, NECS will take an expansive step forward by opening a new North East head office. Headquartered in Cramlington, Northumberland, the contract cleaning company will continue to provide services to companies from the Midlands right up to the Scottish central belt.
NECS directors Gary Breach and Leigh Breach previously used their home office as the company’s HQ, but the time for expansion came. Now that a new office has been acquired, NECS can employ extra support staff to work in more spacious surroundings. This step has enabled NECS to future-proof a secure infrastructure for the business.
Based at the Apex Business Park, Northumberland
Having lived and worked in Cramlington for 10 years, Gary and Leigh knew there was only place where they wanted to open the new office. Following a search of the local area, they eventually chose the Apex Business Park for its superb transport links.
Being situated so close to the A19/A1 will make it more efficient for NECS managers to travel to the new HQ, while Gary and Leigh can get out on the road quicker to visit clients. NECS has even secured a prominent position at the entrance to the park, helping to increase brand awareness. Meanwhile, Gary and Leigh are situated just three miles from their home.
“We are both very excited about this move into new office space at Apex. With 10 years trading behind us and looking to the future we felt that the time was right to make this investment and ensure we can continue to deliver the same high standards of cleaning and our ISO accreditations whilst we continue to grow and expand the business.” – Gary Breach MD.
New staff at NECS Cleaning
Moving forward, the Northumberland HQ will employ three full-time staff members, with managers visiting as and when required. Over the next 12 months, NECS expects to create two new jobs and increase to five permanent staff members in Cramlington.
Elaine Dixon is one of the more recent additions, having taken on the role of Admin and Operations Support. Elsewhere in the company, a new Area Supervisor (Stephen Kee) has joined to assist Manchester Area Manager Darren Street, who has trained Stephen to work with his own customer base. In addition, five new cleaners have been employed since January 2016, helping to expand the 170+ team that is already in place.
Fresh Cleaning Contracts
NECS can also report good news on the client front, having signed a number of new clients during the past 12 months, including law firms and industrial sites. The scope of the contracts will require NECS to provide a wealth of cleaning services comprising of carpet cleaning, deep cleaning of floors and window cleaning, along with washroom and feminine hygiene services.
