Another success story with MacMillan Publishers
Macmillan Group is one of the largest and best-known international publishing groups in the world, operating in over 70 countries. The UK division of the group is responsible for titles released under a number of familiar publishers such as Macmillan, Mantle, Pan, Picador and Kingfisher, and the group has recently appointed Julius Rutherfoord to manage their cleaning requirements across all 8 London offices.
During 2013 there are plans to refurbish part of the existing Kings Cross site and open four additional co-joined premises on the adjacent Regent’s Quarter site to accommodate its international publishing operations, many of whom will be relocating to London from their offices in Oxford and Basingstoke. Julius Rutherfoord will provide its premium cleaning services across all 8 sites, including those under refurbishment and construction.
Julius Rutherfoord were able to demonstrate previous experience in managing cleaning contracts under the difficult circumstances of renovation and building works through contracts with the likes of West Thames College – now shortlisted for the Golden Service Awards ‘best cleaned educational premise in the UK’.<
Being able to demonstrate our experience of maintaining high levels of cleanliness through building work and effectively maintaining both new and listed buildings were factors that led to Julius Rutherfoord winning this prestigious and highly competitive contract.” Said James Bennett – Julius Rutherfoord’s Operations Director.
Macmillan was founded in 1843 by Daniel and Alexander Macmillan, two brothers from the Scottish Isle of Arran. The brothers made a name for themselves through publishing works by great authors such as Lewis Carroll, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling and H. G. Wells. In the late 1960’s retired Prime Minister Harold Macmillan became chairman of the company and initiated an ambitious expansion programme whereby publishing operations were set up in Japan, Mexico and the emerging markets of Africa and Asia.
