Originally from Ystrad Mynach and now living in the Vale of Glamorgan, Chris works as a part-time lecturer whilst also working for Apollo Wales. Cardiff-born Jack currently works part time for Apollo Wales while completing the final part of his degree.
Based in Cardiff Bay, Apollo Wales is a credit only operating company, which makes expansion a little slower but provides a more secure place to work for everyone. Jack and Chris have both previously been made redundant and decided to set up their own business to avoid this happening again.
Having been made redundant, Chris and Jack set up Apollo Wales after identifying a need for student house cleaning. The quick success and high quality standards meant that staff were very soon required as both partners were studying full-time degree courses at the time. Apollo Wales soon became a property maintenance company offering weekly cleaning services to homeowners and tenants in Cardiff.
Soon after, the business gained contracts with some of the UK’s biggest construction companies, offering exceptional post-build cleaning services. This led Apollo Wales to securing further contracts with companies such as Morrison’s, Asda, Tesco, Wilkinson, Barclays Bank and Schuh, amongst others. Recently, the business has been successful in securing work with IKEA and Capitol Cinema. Apart from these, Apollo Wales teams work throughout a number of independent Cardiff-based companies.
As a result, Apollo Wales expanded their operations nationwide and have staff working across the UK daily. Thanks to support from Business Wales, the business is now increasing their reach by growing its Southern Spain cleaning services and expanding into Dubai.
The business is very employee-focused, offering their staff incentives, progression packages, management training to NVQ standard, more than the minimum wage in pay and has a fantastic track record of quality.
