Bidvest Specialised Services

Celebrating 50 years
a premier provider of world class, bespoke commercial services

With its unrivalled dedication to continuous innovation within its sector as well to the people in its employ, it’s no wonder that proudly South African group, Bidvest Prestige Cleaning, celebrates 50 years as a premier provider of world class, bespoke commercial services to a range of business and industries, locally and abroad.

“We recognised long ago, that in order to remain relevant, not only in our industry but in the lives of our people, we need to evolve, to innovate and to look into providing our tried and tested services in new ways and to new industries,” says group CEO, Jegie Padmanathan.

“As a result of this, Bidvest Prestige Cleaning can be seen almost everywhere, from cleaners in office parks, to waitering staff at year-end functions, providing toilets at massive events such as sports meets and so much more.

“In addition to this, is an unrivalled dedication to the growth and development of our people; we actively work towards developing their skills and ensuring they have a clear career path that encompasses their skills, needs and dreams.”

Starting as Prestige Cleaning Services in 1969, the company has a rich history in the South African landscape and in 1993 they were bought by the Bidvest group. Both as Prestige Cleaning Service and Bidvest Prestige Cleaning, the company acquired other businesses and have consistently expanded its offering and boasts a strong workforce in a variety of sectors including Health, Hospitality, Mining, Commercial, Food Hygiene, Retail, Industrial, AutoCare and Education.

Over the last 50 years, amongst its innovations is that of the Training division known as Bidvest Edge, as well as a mobile management app and a real-time mobile workforce management solution. The mobile app and management solution ensures the workforce and assets are in the right areas at the right time, doing what is required at the time and measures service delivery against client expectations.

Bidvest Prestige Cleaning is also one of the founding members of the NCCA and the Green Building Council and offers HACCP qualified specialised cleaning solutions. Bidvest Prestige Cleaning is also certified by the Institute of Working at Heights and SABS ISO 9001 approved.

As a customer centric specialist outsourcing company, Bidvest Prestige and its people, from the workers on the floor, to those in senior management believe in building relationship with clients, and in total immersion in a business in order to continually provide value in every way possible.

“We believe that each client, no matter how similar the business, has unique concerns and challenges and with our hands-on teams, we take the lead in providing solutions that are consistent, repeatable and scalable. We are definitely looking forward to what the next 50 years will bring us, who knows we may be servicing a colony on Mars,” adds Padmanathan.

“In the meantime, I wish to thank everybody who has been part of the Bidvest Prestige Cleaning team, whether as an employee or a client – each of you has played a pivotal role in our success, and it is because of this that we are a force to be reckoned with,” concludes Padmanthan.
