Janitorial supplies business set to clean up

A brand-new Staffordshire Moorlands-based janitorial supply company has launched, catering for demand from clients of its existing sister company, Moorland Contract Cleaning, as well as planning to target new customers.

Moorland Contract Janitorial, part of Moorland Contract Group, will supply a full range of janitorial and cleaning products to a broad spectrum of customers, including warehouses, offices, schools and retail and leisure venues.

The face of Moorland Contract Janitorial will be experienced businesswoman, Jackie Walker, pictured, who joins as business development manager. Jackie has a wealth of experience in business development, sales, human resources and finance. The business officially started trading at the beginning of September.

Moorland Janitorial will be supplying cleaning chemicals from Lancashire-based Evans Vanodine, who have been supplying industry leading janitorial supplies for 100 years, together with equipment and products from other UK-based manufacturers.

Moorland Contract Group director, Suzanne Davy, said: “Having a janitorial supplies company in the group means we can now supply direct from the manufacturer rather than through a distributor. This enables us to offer better value for our customers as well as opening opportunities to supply businesses and organisations who have in-house cleaning functions.

“I am delighted that we have been able to recruit Jackie to head up the sales and account management. She comes with a proven track record in sales and business development and has a high-profile locally due to her networking activities and connections.”

Jackie has worked in sales and business development for the last 25 years, having started her career with the Inland Revenue before moving into payroll and human resources, gaining a CIPD qualification along the way. She has also run her own business as a self-employed bookkeeper. Jackie is currently a board member of Staffordshire Moorlands Chamber of Commerce.

Jackie said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of the new role. The company is brand new, however, as part of the Moorland Contract Group, the structure is in place to deliver great products and excellent customer service.”
