This growth has come about through the company winning a number of substantial, commercial cleaning contracts including a contract to carry out refurbishment cleans at 52 Tesco stores throughout Wales and the South West of England commissioned by a national refurbishment company. Other major contracts which JDK Cleaning Ltd has won over the past 12 months include the annual cleaning contract for a provider of student accommodation in Cardiff and Bath; refurbishment clean at the new Superbowl in Swansea; ongoing cleaning of the Oldwalls Collection and Fairy Hill in Gower; and, more recently a collection of large contracts for various works being carried out throughout Wales and the West.
Investment for Growth
As a result of these major contracts, the company has increased its on-site team with four additional members as well as a full-time Commercial Manager based at JDK’s headquarters in Fforestfach. An additional van is also on order to complement the existing fleet.
In terms of equipment, JDK Cleaning has invested in new labour saving machines as well as other related equipment, enabling the company to continue to deliver the highest standard of service to its customers.
Commenting on these achievements, JDK Cleaning MD, Jack Kelleher, said, “Though the company has always grown year on year, the 12 months from January 2018 to January 2019 has been nothing short of exceptional.
“Over the past two years we have pulled out the stops when it comes to marketing our business as well as investing in staff training, which resulted in the company achieving the Chwarae Teg Exemplar Employer Award. We have also achieved a number of all-important accreditations including CHAS and Constructionline and we are also a member of the British Institute of Cleaning Science and the FSB.
“And as part of our ongoing commitment to customer service excellence, we have invested in Ezitracker, an attendance verification software, designed to monitor the hours worked by our cleaners at different sites. The software provides us with a real-time verified report on the actual hours worked at our customers’ sites which is seamlessly integrated into our payroll system so that the actual hours worked are accurately matched against contracted hours.
“Going forward, we are aiming to continue to make similar investments over the coming year to enable us to improve our standards and efficiencies to our rapidly growing customer base.”
JDK Cleaning offers a range of commercial cleaning services to businesses across Wales and the South West including specialist venue cleaning and post-construction cleans too. The company also offers a carpet cleaning service to both commercial and domestic clients across the region.
