Mrs Bucket, the domestic and commercial cleaning company, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, has moved into a brand new Head Office on the outskirts of Llanelli.
The move to Llanelli Gate Business Park comes as part of the next stage of growth for Mrs Bucket after growing by 52 percent last year, with turnover reaching £2.5 million.
The company has taken out a five year lease on the 2000 sq ft property, which is now home to the administration, training, finance and HR teams, as well as the new base for the Mrs Bucket training academy.
The new head office, which is over two floors, includes a state-of-the-art board room and has room for the company to grow as it plans to recruit additional staff in 2016 and grow its turnover to £3.5 million.
Rachael Flanagan said “We are all thrilled with our new head office. It’s just off the M4 which is a great location as we continue to expand along the M4 corridor, and has plenty of space to accommodate the team, with enough room to expand in the future.
“The office is fresh, bright and modern making it a fantastic place to work for our staff and with state-of-the-art meeting space, we can be proud to welcome our clients to our new headquarters.
“It is a fantastic base for our training academy. It provides an excellent learning space for our new starters to ensure they have the right skills and experience to provide a high quality cleaning service of the best possible standard to each and every one of our clients.
“During the last ten years, our focus has been on investing in our staff, processes and procedures, so that we can differentiate ourselves in the marketplace, and so having a high spec head office hasn’t been a priority for us. However, when we entered our 10th year in business and put our growth strategy together for the next five years, we felt it was important that we moved to a HQ that gave our brand and our team the right environment to grow from.
“The new environment is already a huge motivator to the team and it is an important step for our company as we look to ramp up our expansion plans in 2016.”
Mrs Bucket was set up in November 2005 by Rachael Flanagan when she was 18, with just a vacuum cleaner and £20 which she spent on promotional flyers.
Over the past decade, Mrs Bucket has expanded from a one-woman domestic cleaning service to a full-service commercial and domestic cleaning company with offices in Swansea, Cardiff, Newport and Bristol, 300 employees and over 250 domestic and commercial clients along the M4 corridor.
