Company History

Janitorial Direct Ltd started originally as a carpet cleaning company .Carpets were cleaned for domestic customers which latter lead to more commercial environments, offices, hotels, Nursing homes, banks etc.

The business developed from carpet cleaning to encompass other types of cleaning , firstly in domestic situations, with teams off staff cleaning properties on a regular basis.

This continued and developed into more specialised cleaning including high dusting, kitchen cleaning, stripping and sealing hard floors, degreasing factory floors, etc these tasks were undertaken in offices and commercial environments.

The business then further developed winning large commercial contracts with the likes of British Sugar PLC, the Halifax Building Society, Victoria carpets, law Courts, Car dealerships, furniture makers, solicitors, and all sorts of office environments.

Rapid expansion followed and a small cleaning supplies division was created to underpin and support the cleaning contracts.

As more contracts were obtained more products were needed and the company started to supply other contract cleaners and companies who needed cleaning products, disposable goods and related items.

The Contract cleaning continued to grow as did the supplies division, utilising the expertise gained from the cleaning business to support and propel the supplies division forward.

The cleaning business was sold on to Bowdraper a large Warwickshire based company.

This allowed for the time and resource gained from the disposal of the cleaning division to promote develop and drive the supplies side forward.
