Westgrove Group was originally formed(as Westgrove Cleaning Services Ltd) in 1998, with one contract(Wolverhampton Wanderers) and six full and part time cleaning staff.
The business grew steadily, particularly within football and had a number of clubs in its portfolio, including Liverpool F.C. Bolton Wanderers F.C. and Birmingham City. In 2002 the company migrated its services into shopping centres and retail parks, counting Westfield Shopping Towns as its major client.
In 2009 the company diversified into Security and Manned Guarding. It flourished in this sector, operating a dual service provision. In 2020 the business expanded into the Total Facilities Management(TFM) sector, adding maintenance and engineering to its service offering.
The company now has revenues in excess of £28million per annum and employs some 1,200 colleagues who are engaged at circa 70 live sites. 2021 will see another a year of exponential growth as we see the country return to some semblance of normality.
