Ales Wyers

Greater Manchester-based cleaning and facilities service provider Floorbrite has announced record turnover of more than £15.5m for 2017 – an increase of £3m on 2016.

In the last four years, the Sale firm has enjoyed 13%, 15%, 20%, and 24% year-on-year growth. The company’s goal now is to achieve £20m turnover by 2020, a target that the business is confident it wll hit.

Floorbrite, which employs more than 1,400 people across the UK, including at a base in Leeds and Birmingham, has continued to build on its year-on-year growth by expanding its portfolio of clients and services into new and emerging areas of the market.

The firm, which is owned and operated by the Wyers family, continues to enjoy a 25-year relationship with CBRE as one of its most long-standing clients, as well as having developed relationships with JD Sports, Boohoo, St John Ambulance, Urban Splash and new clients including Kier and Zenith Vehicle Hire.

Alex Wyers, joint managing director at Floorbrite, said: “We’ve always believed that if we’re going to do something, we have to do it well but more importantly – we’ve never been afraid to fail.

“The key to growing a business is to take calculated risks, which is exactly what we’ve done over the past seven years and thankfully the risks have paid off and we’re in a position to announce record turnover figures for 2017.

“We also truly believe that a business is only as good as the people you employ – we have a massive workforce of more than 1,400 staff around the country but we do everything we can to ensure that every single one of those people feels part of the Wyers family. Without them, our business wouldn’t be what it is today.”

Wyers added: “Our plans for the next 12 months are to continue grow our portfolio and saturation across the UK – the facilities market is incredibly buoyant at the moment and we’re pleased to be able to offer clients, both new and old, a vast array of high quality services through our own channels and close team of partners.

“It’s definitely an exciting time for the business and we look forward to the opportunities ahead.”

The company was set up in 1972 by the late Martin Wyers and is now owned and operated by chairman Linda Wyers, joint managing directors Alex and Nik Wyers and marketing director Nina Wyers.
