SCS Take Business To Another Level
SCS (formerly Specialised Cleaning Services) has announced its decision to rebrand in a bid to reflect the changing nature and direction of the growing business becoming, ‘SCS Facility Services’.
The firm, which launched originally as a specialist cleaning business, has diversified its service range through the years, offering more bolt on products to customers operating largely within the social housing sector.
Following a recent large scale contract win with a housing association, the firm has made the bold move.
SCS Facilities Services Managing Director explained: “We’ve seen our business evolve through the years, largely in line with our clients needs, and opportunities we’ve identified within the housing and property sector. Today we have a business that is completely different to the one we launched some eight years ago. We recognise the importance of brand perception and felt the time was right to make the change.”
Under the new approach, SCS will offer a complete housing service that ranges from full strip out to full reinstatement of all services. Work under the new contract will see the recruitment of a further three multi-skilled operatives.
Sarah continued: “This is very much the next natural step for us. We have the skills in house already but will need additional staff to service this one contract. By allocating a single contractor, housing associations will be able to save time and money whilst confident that their improvement works are being managed in-house by a single contractor.”
The business is also set to strengthen its property MOT service arm where private and social landlords manage property improvements proactively through regular inspections and works rather than reacting as issues arise.
Sarah added: “Complete void management and property MOT’s are undoubtedly the preferred route by many housing associations who are taking a more tragic approach in terms of the management of their housing stock. Our business is very much aligned with this way of working and we are honing our model and infrastructure to facilitate this growing demand.”
