Our technicians who are the face of the business are well respected in the industry both for their knowledge of the critical environments they work in and for the quality of their work. My role will be to build on that reputation and continue to ensure the highest standards are delivered every time.”

Mark Plant, CEO at 8 Solutions believes Mark will be a real asset in his new role, he explains, “The specialist technical cleaning service we offer is an inherent and intrinsic component of the risk mitigation process. Effectively our reputation has been built on the quality of our technicians; the team’s specialist knowledge, their training and their attention to detail is what makes them stand out. Our technicians have a reputation for going that extra mile for customers which is why we’re seen as a high-end partner that companies trust.”
