Ocean was established in 1973 with the founding principal of 'Right first time, every time'. This is an ethos we hold to this day.
Over the years we have celebrated many important milestones. By 1988 Ocean Contract Cleaning had reached £1 million annual turnover and in 1996 we became ISO 9000 registered, highlighting our commitment to quality.
Our growth continued into the next decade. In 2000 we welcomed our 1,500th employee to the team. Three years later our commitment to staff welfare and development was acknowledged as Ocean became a recognised Investor in People. In 2006 we received the coveted ISO 14001 environmental management and OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety accreditations.
In 2009 Ocean was reorganised into a group structure that expanded on our core cleaning businesses with the addition of Ocean Security Solutions and Ocean Facilities Services. These specialist companies have allowed us to offer even greater service and value.
Today Ocean Group Holdings employs over 3,000 staff members and operates offices in London, Luton, Portsmouth, Swindon, Canterbury and Manchester. The key to our success has always been our people. Not only are we meticulous about who we choose to join our team but we also place a heavy emphasis on staff training and support.
Despite the many changes we have seen over the years, our goal remains the same; to continue growing and improving so we can stay ahead of our competitors and deliver a consistently excellent service to our customers.
