Feb 2016 Innovation

Town & Country Cleaners took part in an exciting project that will provide reductions in carbon emissions and reduce road travel. We have installed skype conferencing equipment in an effort to communicate with customers and staff without the need to travel hundreds of miles. Working with Sustrans and Kent County Council we have been pleased to take part in this project. The benefits to the Company and the wider community in environmental terms are far reaching and as such the attached case study has been commissioned to explain the benefits.

We have been awarded two new contracts that we are due to start in January 2015. One is for Amicus Horizon and one is for Caterham High School. Both contracts have been awarded on referral and our reputation as a 1st class cleaning contractor. We welcome any new transferring staff and look forward to working for a new client at Caterham High School and our existing client at Amicus Horizon.

Kay, David & Elaine have been the driving force behind the Company since its inception.
