Aberdeen business, Ruby Cleans reports an impressive first year of trading despite the current downturn.
The company which started in May 2016, to work alongside partner business Ruby Irons, has more than exceeded first year targets.
MD Johnny Montgomerie was made redundant from his most recent Business Development position within oil and gas in August 2015.
The last thing he expected was to be running a cleaning business but with the first year of trading under his belt he is now optimistic for the future.
Mr Montgomerie said:
“The downturn has had a significant impact on most people residing in Aberdeen and beyond, it’s very worrying to discover that the job you rely on is no longer there.”
“looking back I am glad that I took the step of going into the unknown, it’s amazing how you can turn a major setback into something positive when you put your mind to it. I am not going to lie it has been very hard work. We believe that solid branding, excellent customer service and quality eco-friendly products and equipment have contributed in no small part to our success so far.”
Ruby Cleans serves both residential and commercial clients in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. The company has long term plans to further develop the commercial side of the business, as well as sustaining steady growth in the residential market.
