Julius Rutherfoord Retains Grand Lodge Of England Contract
Julius Rutherfoord & Co, one of London’s largest independent cleaning companies, has successfully retained one of its most prestigious contracts, through a competitive tender process. The contract, awarded by the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), underlines the company's exceptional commitment to excellence and service.
JR&Co embarked on its partnership with the UGLE, which is the governing body of Freemasonry, in September 2016. The Premier Grand Lodge was founded in London in 1717 and became the United Grand Lodge of England in 1813.
With a global membership of 175,000 and over 7,000 Lodges, UGLE occupies a unique place of influence. Its headquarters is at Freemasons’ Hall, a stunning Grade II* listed Art Deco building that proudly stands on Great Queen Street in Covent Garden, London.
JR&Co’s contract retention will see them continue to provide cleaning and washroom services to the Covent Garden hot spot. The renewal was awarded due to the company’s ability to deliver and excel at customer service; its proactive cleaning approach and the flexibility it demonstrates in its day-to-day service offering.
Richard Jewitt, Director of Building Services at UGLE, said:
"We are very pleased that JR&Co has been reappointed as our contract cleaner. Over the last seven years, its on-site team has consistently delivered very high standards day in, day out for us, and has looked after our unique building, so it is always clean and always looking great."
Managing Director, Chris Jarvis, comments on the news:
“The extension of this contract is testament to the hard work of our dedicated people. At JR&Co, we believe that our business success is based on the service delivered by our expert teams, which is why we pay such great attention to making sure that they are rewarded and recognised."
“Client satisfaction means a lot to us at JR&Co. We have built a market-leading reputation off the back of getting to know our clients, their businesses, and their needs. There is no greater endorsement from a client than a contract extension, as it demonstrates the value they place on us as a part of their own team.”
