Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Business is booming for Nottinghamshire cleaning company

Business is booming for a Nottinghamshire commercial cleaning company which is celebrating a 900 per cent increase in turnover and a move to larger premises.

Husband and wife team, Darren and Sally Keightley, managing directors of Ashfield Cleaning Company Ltd, have boosted their workforce from 10 to 35 and contracts have risen from 20 to 97 in the 12 months since they have been based at the Mansfield i-Centre.

Within four months of being based at the thriving business centre the flourishing company was helped to move into a larger office on site. With continued support and guidance they will now graduate to their own premises after securing one new contract a week.

Darren said:

“The support we have received at the Mansfield i-Centre has been fantastic. The only reason we are moving is because we are growing that fast that we have outgrown the centre.”

The prosperus firm will now take on eight offices with storage facilities at a base in Kirkby in Ashfield.

Darren added:

“This success is down to a lot of hard work and dedication. We go above and beyond for our clients. It’s not easy in this industry and we rely on the quality of our staff and take steps to ensure they consistently work to our high standards.

“A clean and well-maintained working environment always creates a good impression of your business and is often considered to be a positive factor for your overall business growth. As a local commercial cleaning company, we offer contract cleaning packages at reasonable prices.

“It’s been excellent to have business coach, David Smith, on hand to provide advice and help us to successfully apply for business grant applications.

“I would definitely recommend a move to the i-Centre to any small business. We were optimistic when we arrived but it has exceeded our expectations and provided the perfect recipe for us to grow and grow.”

David Smith, Mansfield i-Centre Business Coach, said:

“We are delighted to see the hard work of Darren and Sally come to fruition. It has been a pleasure to witness the company flourish during their time at the i-Centre.

“As an incubator centre, we pride ourselves on providing the flexibility, space and support to help businesses prosper and grow. We are always looking to welcome new businesses into our community. Located just a short distance from Mansfield town centre, the i-Centre is a modern and thriving business hub, designed around the needs of our customers and theirs.”
