Clean Sweep UK: going from strength to strength

After an impressive 2017, in which the Manchester-based Clean Sweep UK – the cleaning equipment hire specialist - experienced growth of circa 25% and a further 33% growth in key personnel, the company isn’t resting on its laurels!

2018 has already seen Clean Sweep UK increase its sales, operations and service teams, showing its commitment to continually improving service levels for its customers.

James Dennis, who has joined the team to look after key accounts in FM, public services and healthcare, said: “It’s a really exciting time to join Clean Sweep UK who are winning new accounts throughout the UK. I firmly believe that we offer a class leading solutions-based approach to cleaning equipment hire.”

At Clean Sweep UK, the hire controller is at the heart of everything. Katie Rapson has joined the team after years of working for leading national tool hire companies. On her appointment to this crucial role, she said: “The responsibility and challenge of organising and controlling the vast number of hires that we take each and every day, for all types of cleaning equipment, is something that really excites me. There’s a real buzz around Clean Sweep UK.”

2018 is the year in which Clean Sweep UK celebrates its 10-year anniversary, and it has marked this by also announcing that it will be expanding operations throughout the UK. The first new site will be located in Banbury near Oxford, with good access to the M40, M25 and other major motorway networks. Kristie Wilson, operations director, said: “Since we began, we’ve been committed to providing our customers with fast and professional cleaning equipment hire solutions. By expanding our operation into Banbury, we will be able to continue to improve our excellent response times for our customers. It’s an exciting time for all involved with Clean Sweep UK, and this step will further cement our position as the UK’s leading hire provider of quality cleaning equipment.”

Clean Sweep UK is also investing in its IT infrastructure to further add value to its hire solutions. By the summer, all of its driver/demonstrators will be armed with state-of-the-art PDA systems. This will allow for more accurate ETAs to be provided to customers, as well as capturing customer signatures following training on all machines and taking images of equipment - meaning the whole hire process can be completed almost instantly. The additional data that will be captured by the PDAs will then be accessible for customers on the new Clean Sweep UK customer portal, providing 24/7 information on their hire.

After a strong 2017, in which Clean Sweep UK established itself for cleaning equipment hire, 2018 shows that the Kärcher Group company has its eyes firmly set on retaining its leading position by providing exceptional cleaning equipment hire solutions.
