Commercial cleaning firm, Cleanology, has continued its expansion programme with the acquisition of one of the largest cleaning contractors in North-West England, TC Bibby & Sons.
Based in Wigan, TC Bibby & Sons launched in 1931 with Managing Director, Geoff Bibby, the third generation of Bibbys to steer the company. Geoff Bibby, along with all existing staff members, will remain with the company.
The deal means Cleanology now employs over 1,200 people across the UK with revenues having doubled over the past year to over £25 million. Cleanology’s coverage in the North-West now includes Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool, Preston, Blackburn, Bolton, Warrington and North Wales.
Dominic Ponniah, CEO of Cleanology, described the deal as a meeting of minds. He said: “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with a long-established and reputable family business like TC Bibby & Sons, which shares our values and places its customers and staff at the centre of everything it does.”
Geoff Bibby commented: “Joining Cleanology means our clients will continue to receive all the benefits of a locally-managed customer-centric business, but with the added benefits of additional support services, national coverage and new innovations in technology and sustainability.”
All contact details remain the same and the business will continue to operate from the office in Wigan as normal.
The recent acquisition is the latest move in a rapid expansion for Cleanology, which has seen the firm secure new business across the UK, including a contract to clean three of Mercedes-Benz’s showrooms in the North-West.
