Cardiff-based Abbey Cleaning Service has secured the largest deal in its 30 year history.
The commercial cleaning company has agreed a three year deal with one of Wales’ largest skills and employment providers, Itec. The six figure contract to support the training company’s seven offices across South Wales is set to create 10 new jobs, increasing turnover by 20% in the process.
Director of Abbey Cleaning, Adrian Harvie, said he was delighted to be working with another Welsh company to create more opportunities for local workers:
“This new contract is the result of a lot of hard work from the management team and our staff. There is a strong family environment at Abbey, and I am thrilled to be welcoming 10 new additions to the team.
“The company is currently going through a period of growth, with the Itec contract representing the largest in our 30 year history. Hopefully this is just the start, as we look to bid for more contracts and increase our network across Wales.
“We have had a recruitment drive over the past few weeks and we are now welcoming our new team members as the contract begins in early February.”
Jonathan Gray, Itec’s Business Support Manager, said he was impressed by Abbey Cleaning’s dedication to detail and enthusiasm for creating local job opportunities:
“Supporting Welsh businesses and employees is one of our guiding principles here at Itec, so working with someone as passionate as Adrian, as well as helping create more local jobs, ticks all the boxes.
“The old adage, you only get one chance to make a first impression is true, and that starts with the working environment. The moment an employer or an individual walks into one of our offices we need them to feel safe in the knowledge that they are being supported by experienced professionals. It’s for that reason we needed a commercial cleaning company that truly understood the importance we place on an immaculate office.
“We were impressed with the passion that Adrian and his team showed, and we know our offices will be safe in their hands.”
Established 30 years ago, Abbey Cleaning is a family run business working across Cardiff and South Wales. The company employs 31 people and supports a range of different businesses, from a local solicitor’s practice, through to national service centres.
