A&R Services had humble beginnings, starting as an ironing business by Rayner Davies. Soon, her then-husband joined the business and became a fast-growing domestic cleaning business, providing many job opportunities in the local area.
These days, A&R Services, which has over 35o employees, is recognised as a leading soft services company, providing commercial cleaning, security services and more across Wales and the South West of England. The company holds partnerships with other flagship businesses such as Welsh Water, Snowdonia National Park and One Central Square.
After a recent MBO, the business is looking to build upon all it has done in the last 12 years. Now picking up more clients in the South West of England, A&R Services says it firmly has its sights on another period of growth, providing employment opportunities throughout the country, as well as top-level service.
Ashley Davies, Managing Director commented: “It’s been great to see how far the company has come in the last 12 years. Although we have grown substantially, we have still held our values close and continue to be an honest and friendly business, striving to always provide the best service.
“We have been investing heavily in our technology and can’t wait to see how the next few years pan out with some of the new tools we will have at our disposal, helping us to do our job consistently and making life for our clients as simple as possible.”
Chloe Stanford, Executive Director said: “In my time at A&R Services, I have seen first-hand how the business has continued to grow and develop. I am so proud of all of our staff, we have pulled together as one big team to push the company in the right direction, allowing us to create opportunities in new areas and bring professional and ethical soft services to many kinds of businesses.”
Dora Vasarhelyi, Operations Director added: “Having started my career as a commercial cleaner, I have worked my way up and seen many aspects of the business. One thing that I am proud of is throughout the entirety of the business, everybody brings their best to all that they do. This is a big reason why we have continued to develop, I cannot wait to see what the future brings for A&R Services.”
