Happy 10th Birthday to us! We’re incredibly thankful to be celebrating a decade in the cleaning business this September – and what a ride it’s been. A journey filled with challenges and rewards that have led us to where we are today.
This time 10 years ago our award-winning founding director, Simon Dresdner, launched Merco from his own garden shed. A frustrated ex-property manager, inspired by his own negative experiences, he decided to give Greater Manchester what it was sorely lacking; a skilled and reliable cleaning company.
After starting out with himself as the sole employee, he went on to build our fantastic company, which now employs over 100 staff. This 10-year milestone marks a decade of rapid yet sustainable growth, a shiny new rebrand, an office relocation and more importantly, solving the issues of frustrated business and premises owners by delivering 100% reliability and satisfaction day in, day out.
In the beginning, Merco’s vision was to become the most reliable and trustworthy cleaning and facilities services provider in the North West. Today, we’ve become Manchester’s fastest growing cleaning company and the only cleaning contractor in the North West with a 100% Reliability Guarantee. Mission accomplished.
Being here today, able to celebrate this momentous occasion, also means that we’ve broken two massive national statistics; in that 80% of businesses fail in the first 5 years and then 80% of those successful businesses fail within the next 5 years. Look at us, still here to tell the tale!
A lot has changed in 10 years, but our core values have always remained the same. What has always made Merco stand out is our commitment and guarantee to our clients that they will never be let down, after all that was the reason Merco was formed in the first place.
Going above and beyond isn’t always the easiest route to take, but luckily Merco is made up of the best possible people who share the passion in building the most honest, reliable and trustworthy cleaning service provider in the North West.. Here’s what Simon has to say:
“We have only managed to reach this exciting milestone due to the commitment and dedication of our fantastic team who work tirelessly in making sure we always work towards fulfilling our vision.
We are looking forward to the next chapter where Merco will be providing our 100% reliable cleaning service to many more frustrated businesses, residential blocks and schools across Manchester and the North West. We will also continue to look to grow through acquisition, word of mouth and creative marketing, and our dream to become a 5-million-pound business in the next 5 years are not far away now.”
Thank you to everyone who has played a part in our growth and success, we hope you’ll join us as we create the next chapter in our story. To mark the tenth anniversary, Merco is launching a very special offer: FREE cleaning for the first 10 days to any new contracts signed by the end of October 2018.
