Sparkling start to the academic year

KGB Cleaning and Support Services has gone back to school in style this summer by adding another two educational contracts to its extensive client portfolio - Light Hall School in Solihull and Worcester College of Technology.

KGB's northern region boasts an 85-strong customer base with an extensive mix of public, private and commercial clients. In addition to these two educational establishments, new contracts have also come from Parrs Wood High School in Manchester, Redcar and Cleveland College in the north-east, and St Peter's School and Lode Heath School in Solihull, which are all the results of recent successful retenders.

They join Alderbrook School and Lyndon School in Solihull, South Tyneside and Hartlepool Colleges in the north-east, and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, which were all newly awarded at the start of 2013.

Caroline Kelly, director of KGB Cleaning and Support Services and head of the northern team, said: “Schools and colleges are the forefront of our cleaning expertise - and the number of educational clients we have attracted and retained this year is a testament to our experience within this sector. We know how important education is - and therefore we understand the necessity of a sparkling clean building for pupils to study in. Also, most schools and colleges are now very hi-tech, so we have updated and developed 'traditional cleaning methods' to reflect more modern built environments, and to tailor our services to meet our clients' ever changing needs.”

Commercially, the team has also secured business from housing associations. KGB now cleans and maintains 180 sites for Riverside Housing Association, and 74 sites for Equity Housing Group - covering a wide geographical area of the north-west.
