About Us

History and Purpose

We’re proud of our heritage and reputation. We were established in 2007 and since then we’ve gone from strength to strength. We embrace our local origins, and provide quality, dependable and professional services across the northwest.

At the core of our business is our people. Most of our teams live in the local communities they work in, so when you work with us, we bring a true local partnership to your company.  

Our vision is simple: To make your local life easier.

To keep us on track, we have three core values at the heart of everything we do:

  • Straightforward

    We tell it how it is. We’re honest and open with the community and clients alike. We deliver on our promises with a sense of responsibility and integrity – if we make a mistake, we own up to it and we work hard to put it right straight away.

  • Together

    We don’t want to be a commodity to your business, we want to be a partner. When you’re winning, we’re winning and vice versa – we want you to share the successes of the services we’re proud to provide. We listen to you, and we can offer advice along the way.

  • Accomplished

    Nothing beats the feeling of a job well done. We’re proud of what we do and we never stop looking for ways to improve and learn. Our aim is to share these accomplishments with you, offering advice and help along the way, too. We strive for excellence in everything we do.

Environmental and Green Policy

We’re committed to doing our best for the environment. We never stop looking for ways we can not only limit the damage to but enrich the local ecosystem. Working with TLC is a positive step for your business towards being a greener, more sustainable company; we want to share our environmental successes with you.

We already have measures in place such as:

  • 100% of waste motor oil is recycled.

  • Woodchip from our greenspace projects is used CHP plants to produce green energy, enough to power 52,000 homes.

  • Timber is repurposed by local businesses to produce things like community greenspace seating and flowerbeds.

  • We only use hypoallergenic, biodegradable cleaning products.

  • We use sustainable energy wherever we can, including the use of solar energy for our in-house fleet maintenance building.

  • Our catering services recycle oil into biofuels, contributing to the reduction of fossil fuel burning.

What Our Clients Say…

“The TLC team were great. The peace of mind it brought to us knowing that this cleaning service had been carried out cannot be underestimated and as a school we would like to thank TLC for their prompt and efficient service.”

Cathy Wilks, School Business Manager
Hazel Grove Primary School

“The quality was excellent… the children loved the meal and the school staff were very effusive in their positive comments… the team make an amazing contribution to the life of the school and always take into account the children’s views.”

Gawsworth Primary School

“They did a really thorough job and it’s nice to see our green spaces looking so lovely for the many people who rely on the park… it’s not looked this good or safe in years.”
