We had humble beginnings as a small ironing service run by our Managing Director, Rayner Davies, back in 2002. Due to her natural flair for entrepreneurship, the business quickly expanded into providing domestic cleaning services which soon became our core focus.
In 2010, Rayner recruited her husband, Ashley, who had an extensive background in financial services and so A & R Cleaning Services was born.
Since then, we have been continuously expanding and improving and have become a household name in the Welsh cleaning industry.
Over the past two years, both in terms of staff and contracted clients, the company has quadrupled. We now employ 40 members of staff and have over 200 regular contracts, as well as many other one-off clients across the area.
Our head office is located on Bridgend Industrial Estate and houses our dynamic and helpful office team who have become the foundation for the continuing growth of A&R.
We strive to be the very best at what we do. Our numerous awards and accreditations demonstrate our continuing commitment improving the quality and efficiency of our services.
We pride ourselves on the honest culture instilled in our company. We act fairly and openly in everything that we do. Integrity is vital to building and maintaining trust and good relationships with our customers.
We value our employees and keenly advocate investment in people. We give our staff the encouragement, freedom and training to succeed because this fosters an entrepreneurial attitude. We trust our team and they trust us too.
We understand that every customer has different requirements. Our dedicated area managers work hard to build relationships with clients to ensure that their needs and expectations are surpassed.
Our 10-step Recruitment Process

A great example of a local company meeting the needs of local people.
