BACKGROUND

Not many businesses can lay claim to 50 years in business together, yet this is true of Tesco and TC Cleaning Services, who have successfully grown their business relationship year-on-year and clocked up almost half a century’s worth of cleaning contracts together – which now places TC as the supermarket’s largest contract cleaning company.

THE CHALLENGE

Among its burgeoning portfolio of 995 stores lies a nationwide cleaning mandate that spans the length and breadth of the UK. Throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland TC cleans 220 Superstores, 98 Extras, 51 Metros, 536 Expresses, and 18 High-Street stores – not to mention Homeplus, Pharmacy and Tesco.com.

The sheer volume and geographic scale of the Tesco contract requires TC to utilise its collective expertise in the retail sector; flexibility in dealing with situations as they arise; and operational capabilities to deliver against Tesco’s stringent cleaning objectives – and all on a daily basis while often working in and around the public.

Most Tesco stores have gone through major development at some point that have involved extensive building works, both vertically and externally, and TC staff were required to work around builders’ and the dirt that arises from such projects, while maintaining the professionalism and standards that are expected by Tesco.

OUTCOME

TC works with Tesco on the lion’s share of its cleaning requirements and is excited at the prospect of further strengthening the partnership in the future. Winning such a substantial amount of business from the Nation’s largest retailer is testimony to TC’s continued commitment to service, and the delivery of added value solutions in an increasingly competitive environment. TC strives to offer solutions on an ongoing basis that will continue to represent best value for the Tesco business model, and for its customers, who expect to have a safe and pleasurable shopping experience in store.

TC works to international quality protocols ISO9001, ISO14001, and BS OHSAS 18001.
