Lester Cruse (Director of Cruse Cleaning Ltd) started the business of window and
office cleaning in 1966, buying out his partner after 18 months and continuing as
sole proprietor. As contracts increased Lester began employing other people to take
on some of the hours and a team of experts was developed.
The business continued to grow and at the beginning of 2003 was incorporated as Cruse
Cleaning Ltd. At this stage the business still consisted of cleaning contracts for
local businesses, but in 2005 Lester decided to move into supplying cleaning chemicals
and equipment whilst still maintaining the contract cleaning.
Bigger and better
The day to day running of the contract cleaning had always been undertaken from a
home office, but the decision was made in 2006 to move to Haydon Industrial Estate
in Radstock. The move was a positive result of growing sales of cleaning products
in Radstock in the local area, and also Cruse Cleaning becoming known as a local
UNGER stockist and for its own high quality chemical line Sunstone products.
After the move to Haydon, the business focused on supplying top quality cleaning
products to Radstock and the surrounding area, giving local businesses access to
professional contract cleaners, award winning products and more.
