Robotic Vacuums

May, 2018

Cresswell is to trial innovative robotic vacuums on one of its prestigious sites in Central London. Coming in “Hives” of ten the vacuums, known as Busy Bees, carry out the vacuuming leaving the cleaner free to concentrate on other aspects of the cleaning operation.

With this in mind, the robotic vacuum therefore has the potential to reduce cleaning time, resulting in a reduction of cost to our clients.

These pioneering machines have approximately ninety minutes operational time on one charge but can then be fully recharged in only five hours.

Not only that, but the dust collector is emptied each day and vacuum put back in “Hive” to recharge.

Sponsoring A Young Sporting Star

December, 2014

Cresswell is delighted to sponsor a young rising star in biking for the 2015 season. Tom Grimshaw who lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire was brought up around dirt bikes with his Granddad, Dad and Uncle who were all racers. Learning the ropes from the age of eight,Tom who is now thirteen, won the Kensworth club championship in his first full season of racing in 2010.

Since then the young talented lad has gone from strength to strength winning numerous titles year after year, including the prestigious Master Kids held in Commercy Mid France in 2014. After three days of racing, Tom managed to win the main final to become U14 85cc Champion. The final race of the season was the famous Weston Super Mare Beach race which Tom won to cap off a good year.

Now being a youth academy Red Bull athlete, Tom’s dedication and passion for the sport continues and he has currently started back training in preparation for 2015 season which involves him going to the gym three times a week working on his cardio fitness. Weekends are spent riding his bike and trying to develop different elements of his riding, often travelling to France & Holland to ride over the winter months as they have better all-weather tracks. Next year, he plans to take part in the ACU British Youth (tbc), European Championship, Dutch National Championship and World Championship and is well supported in the industry and features regularly in magazines, newspapers and Youtube films. As part of its sponsorship, Cresswell will assist with Tom’s travel and maintenance costs and the company logo will appear on his bike.

For the fourth year running, South London business, Cresswell Office Services Ltd has seen off other contract cleaning companies to win external work at Brunel University.

The company which specialises in cleaning, facilities and building maintenance, currently holds a number of prestigious contracts in both the public and private sector. Brunel University has tried out other companies in this period but Cresswell has consistently come out tops with its expertise and detail to high quality.

David McAuley, Waste and Support Services Manager at Brunel University said, "Once again I have been delighted with the outcome of the work Cresswell has carried out. The staff are extremely experienced and competent in this type of specialist cleaning and totally understand the needs of the University."
