Mrs Buckét Cleaning Services has secured a major new contract with GE Aviation Wales in Nantgarw, near Cardiff.
The Swansea-based commercial cleaning firm was awarded the deal following a competitive tender process.
GE Aviation Wales specialises in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of a range of GE90 and CFM56 commercial jet engines for commercial fleets from clients based all over the world.
The contract will involve more than 20 members of the Mrs Buckét team working on-site seven days a week. The company has invested in state-of-the-art machinery and innovation technologies for the main production zones.
Rachael Flanagan, CEO and founder of Mrs Buckét Cleaning Services, said: “This is a huge win for the business, and we’re delighted that we were able to compete at such a high level with other national commercial cleaning companies. Our ability to think strategically when pitching to companies like GE is what makes a tangible difference in our success rate.
“Last year was a strong one for Mrs Buckét Cleaning Services and we achieved a solid 28% growth, this year we’re aiming for 48%. We have a strong pipeline in place and we’re already in talks with several large businesses.“
Tom Fox, head of facilities at GE Aviation Wales, said: “Our aviation customers have high standards of us and in turn, we have high expectations of our suppliers. They need to work with us in a number of complex production environments where both regulators and customers have exacting requirements. At Nantgarw, all our suppliers are part of Team Wales and it’s great to be bringing on a Welsh company, especially one with experience of working in other manufacturing environments.”
