OCS History

History

Back in 1900, the Group was founded as a window and general cleaning business by Frederick Goodliffe. Although we have changed remarkably since the start of the last century, our family values and commitment will always be at the heart of our business. Our values are heavily influenced by our family ownership, not only in building a sustainable business for the long term but in running one which recognises our responsibilities to our many stakeholders.

Family values
We are proud to have been awarded the prestigious “PwC Family Business of the Year” in 2012, as a recognition of our substantial growth into an innovative, modern, international company. Our recent expansion has seen the OCS and Cannon Hygiene ‘family’ swell to over 90,000 employees operating in over 40 countries worldwide.

Our family values extend to all our staff, our clients and the communities in which we do business and are embraced in the Group’s core values.

Today we have grown into a TFM provider and washroom services business with a focus on designing sustainable solutions. We deliver management systems and services which add value to our clients, increase efficiency and produce environmental and social benefits.
