Sussex Cleaning & Care Ltd (SCC) is the ‘go to’ commercial cleaning contractor in Sussex, servicing offices, schools, medical centres, industrial units, communal areas and sports and leisure venues.
Since 1978, it has built an enviable reputation for reliability, honesty, professionalism and above all, delivering the best quality services at realistic and sustainable prices.
All work undertaken complies with ISO9001/ISO14001/Safe Contractor management systems and all 240+ staff are directly employed, uniformed and hold photographic ID. Operating solely in Sussex and based on the county crossroads A23/A272 at Bolney, it is ideally located to service its clients quickly and decisively.
What sets it apart from its competitors is its total commitment to deliver consistent quality services through local management structures with a low contract to Area Manager ratio.
Through its experience within the cleaning industry and its knowledge of service companies who perform particularly well in Sussex, it is able to offer a total package of services managed by the company on its clients’ behalf, enabling them to totally focus on their own core business.
The cornerstone of quality in SCC is the calibre and commitment of its people and collaborative environment in which they work. Evidence of this was Ruth Everest, Quality & Compliance Manager, winning the ‘Invaluable Star’ category in the BHBPA (Burgess Hill Business Parks Association) awards in May.
This follows the ‘Eco Warrior’ award SCC won in the inaugural event for their environmental achievements two years earlier and sponsored by SCC this year.
These simple but crucial methods of operation have contributed to organic year-on-year growth for the 23 years the current directors have been in control of the company. This is on-target to exceed £2.6m turnover this year.
Robert Morris, SCC’s Commercial Director, said: “Our growth has gone-hand-in-hand with that of the Sussex economy. We have seen major growth and regeneration from a wide range of business sectors in Crawley, major growth of digital companies in Brighton and now we are seeing major regeneration and commercial development on our doorstep in Burgess Hill”.
The Hub in Burgess Hill is literally a stone’s throw away from its office/warehouse building and is well on its way to becoming a prime industrial/warehouse development currently home to GeoPost UK.
SCC’s largest client is based in Burgess Hill and it cleans other landmark buildings in most towns including the Amex Stadium where it started its ninth season as the matchday cleaners of Brighton & Hove Albion FC.
BHAFC’s decision back in 2010 to contract SCC for this work emphasises the positive trend of larger organisations moving away from National Service Providers to local companies who are more customer focused, know the local labour force better and can react to needs, change and service issues quicker.
