The Tata Steel subsidiary UK Steel Enterprise (UKSE) has loaned a five-figure sum to Cumbernauld-based Coronet Clean Team to expand its services across Scotland and the north of England. UKSE is set up to help growing companies operating in former steel producing areas to realise their full potential, boost the local economy, and create jobs.
Coronet Clean Team is a commercial cleaning company offering daily, weekly and monthly cleaning services to all types of business. The company specialises in office cleaning and, through winning contracts with multiple sites, Coronet Clean Team is widening its operations across the UK. The expansion will create 26 full and part time jobs in cleaning, administration and business development roles.
The UKSE funding has enabled the business to broaden its cleaning services as well as offer a soft facilities management service which will cover everything from fixing a light bulb to mending radiators to painting and decorating.
Clients include London and Scottish Investments, John G Russell and ADT Fire and Security. The business is the preferred supplier of office cleaning for DHL in Scotland and recently won its first retail contract for the Emporio Armani store in Glasgow city centre.
Scott Wylie, managing director at Coronet Clean Team, said: “Working with UKSE has been excellent. Not only does the funding give the company breathing space to explore new revenue streams, the support UKSE has provided throughout the process has been second to none...UKSE has been a good set of ears to discuss expansion plans and it's a real lift to have it believe in the company.”
Anne Clyde, regional manager at UKSE, said: “Coronet Clean Team has real potential for growth which will create much needed jobs in steel areas. When meeting Scott it was clear he had the enthusiasm and aspiration to develop the company and he has big ambitions for the future.”
