East Anglian cleaning company Monthind has announced the acquisition of two Norfolk-based businesses, securing 45 jobs in the area. Monthind will take over the commercial cleaning contracts of Stulee Cleaning Limited and Dereham General Cleaning, both of which have been operating since 2009.
Tony Clarke, managing director of Monthind, said: “Though this acquisition saw 45 members of staff transferring to Monthind under TUPE regulations, our experience with taking on contracts of this size meant that the whole process was virtually seamless and both our new staff and clients can be assured of business as usual.”
The new commercial cleaning contracts have been added to the portfolio of clients run from Monthind's Norwich office. While the company already offers a diverse range of services, from public sector and forensic cleaning to pest control and waste management, expanding its service further into new areas will mark an interesting new development for Monthind.
Monthind's business manager, Chris Brown, sees the additional revenue and clients as excellent complements to its growing operations in the Norfolk region: “The office cleaning contracts predominantly cater for areas west of Norwich, where we are seeing significant growth, while the other represents further expansion in to high street window cleaning. We already produce and maintain our own pure water supply from our Norwich depot, so expanding our residue-free window cleaning services in Norfolk is a great new development for Monthind, which really complements our current contracts in the area.”
Clarke concluded: “High quality contracts like these have become a key part of our targeted growth strategy. As Monthind grows, acquisitions give us an extra boost towards maintaining and strengthening our position as one of the largest independent commercial cleaning organisations in East Anglia.”
