Celebrating 20 Years

We are delighted to be celebrating our 20th anniversary at IOC, when the company was formed it was our vision to create a City based cleaning company delivering outstanding service. As one of the few remaining cleaning companies based in central London we are still able to provide the quick response service where we can react to any emergency within the hour. We are excited to see what the next twenty years bring to IOC, in particular on our journey to achieving Carbon neutral status and protecting our planet for future generations. We would like to thank all of our clients and partners for their ongoing support and also our incredible team who without their dedication and hard work we would not be the company we are today.

Our Client Partnerships

We have partnered with IOC since 2003.  Since that time we have moved three times and now employ 350 people.  IOC have been with us throughout Numis’ journey and developed their services to cater for our needs as a business.  We now an have amazing new offices in Gresham Street and it is essential that they are kept pristine, and IOC work incredibly well to ensure this.  Tomas Perez has been our exceptional IOC team lead at Numis for as long as I can remember. Tomas and Paul Hart, IOC Director, are both on site often and know us and our business well. It is really important to me that top management visit and engage with me frequently.  This is the formula that sets IOC apart from other cleaning firms, they see the value in knowing us and our business and adapt how they work, so they can bring the best to our business.  We have two supervisors, Cristina Cabral (night) and Amparo Ribera (day) and they have been with Numis for a long time too – they ensure their teams work well and provide first class service.  The turn over of cleaning operatives is virtually zero and the majority of them are known by name by our staff and it is great to see professional harmonious relationships between both groups.  I get weekly calls from other cleaning companies pitching for the IOC business – but why would I jump ship when we have the best in the business already supporting us?!

Numis would like to congratulate Paul Hart and his team on their 20 year anniversary – thank you for all your hard work and look forward to continuing our partnership into the future.
