Leicester cleaning services company keeps it in the family with acquisition

MCS Cleaning & Maintenance LTD, a commercial and home cleaning services company based in Leicester, has acquired Gemclean LTD.

The founders of Gemclean LTD, Jack and Karen Hobbs, are passing on the baton to their daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and Tim Blacknell, owners of MCS Cleaning & Maintenance LTD.

Established in 1977, Gemclean LTD began as a small window cleaning business in Berkshire and quickly grew and developed to offer carpet and upholstery and commercial cleaning of offices.

Jack and Karen’s daughter, Kelly, fondly recalls her childhood spent learning the ropes of the business from her parents, from methodically cleaning buildings to ensuring every detail was attended to. Now, as Jack enters well-deserved retirement at the age of 72, Kelly and her team are ready to carry forward the legacy he built.

“I am so proud of both my parents and all their hard work and dedication to their business and teaching us that hard work goes a long way,” said Kelly.

“I always admired the way he took pride in every site as if it was his own building, right down to making sure every window was shut and every door locked up and safe with the alarm set. He would always go that extra mile for his customers and team even when they didn’t expect it.”

Gemclean LTD, now operating under the MCS Cleaning & Maintenance LTD banner, will continue to provide cleaning services to customers across Berkshire and beyond.
