£2.4m education sector cleaning contracts secured

26 August 2016

New contracts within the education sector have been secured by Maxim Facilities Management (Maxim FM) totalling £2.4m.

It has won the three-year contracts with secondary and tertiary educational establishments around the UK in locations including Kettering, Manchester and Lancaster, as well as its native North East.

The company reports that its achievements result from a decision taken two years ago to increase its focus on the education sector.

This has seen the Maxim FM proportion of education business rise from 10% to 25%.

As a result of its success, the company has increased its number of employees to more than 800, with a number of education specialists recruited following its recent contract wins.

Its management is continuing to implement a growth plan intended to increase turnover and employee numbers over the next three years to £20m and 2,000 people respectively.

Maxim FM founder and managing director Graham Conway said after spotting the trend for work being devolved within educational establishments and implementing a strategic approach to meet these needs, his company was now seeing positive results.

"We've developed a sector-specific package that enables the schools and colleges with which we work to access the services they require in a cost-efficient and effective way," he said.

He further stated "there is a great deal more potential to be realised in this sector, particularly within the North East".
