SUCCESSFUL 2015 Gym and spa business motive8 has announced an annual turnover increase of 20% and a 33% increase in staff since November 2014. The company has delivered a considerable number of new installations this year in the corporate, residential and private property sectors, as well as taking on even more managed gym and spa facilities such as One Tower Bridge, Goodman’s Fields and Dickens Yard.

motive8 now manages full-scale gym and spa facilities in eight residential developments with a full-time, on-site team to provide a range of health and wellbeing services, a 50% increase on last year’s figures. It has also installed 26 new gym and spa facilities this year, with bigger and more complex installations being added to the portfolio. This year, the company also delivered its biggest ever gym in a deal worth close to £400,000.

The gym and spa business is also pleased to announce that it has won 40 new projects across the commercial, residential and private property sectors, with this being the best year ever for new business. Nick Sadler, motive8 Director, does not attribute this to any one thing, but a combination of factors.

“We’ve been inundated with new business,” Sadler explained. “This year we’ve spent a lot of time organising the business, ensuring we have great people both in-house and on-site across all our facilities. Having the best team we’ve ever had puts us in a strong position to go out and do more.”

motive8 has made some additions to its internal team, employing a full-time Head of Operations and Operations Manager to help grow and manage the operations side of the business. A number of additional hires have also helped bolster the internal team, including full-time HR and compliance appointments. On-site, the maintenance team has expanded to ensure that the 200-plus maintenance contracts that motive8 manages are delivered to high specifications.



MANCHESTER IN APRIL For the past four decades, Floorbrite has built a reputation as the north’s largest contract cleaning and facilities management company, and has recently confirmed its stand at the Manchester Cleaning Show.

The family-run-firm, which was set up in 1972 by the late Martin Wyers, now employs more than 1,200 people across the north of England and provides cleaning and facilities management for nationally recognised names such as Aldi, JD Sports, and Manchester’s very own The Lowry.

Based in Sale, and with an office in Yorkshire, Floorbrite is proud of its northern roots, particularly the opportunities that the bustling city of Manchester has provided for business development and growth.

Nik Wyers, Joint Managing Director, said: “Manchester is an exciting, growing, and thriving hub of business opportunities and we’ve always found the strong business links we’ve formed in the city have served us well.

“Over the years we’ve grown to become the biggest cleaning and facilities contractor in the north of

England, so we’re really excited for the Cleaning Show to come to our home city.

“The cleaning and facilities industry can work together to provide clients and customers with an even better service, and meeting likeminded businesses at the Cleaning Show will be a real highlight for us.

“We’re sure everybody will be impressed with the facilities and the friendly disposition of people in Manchester so the stereotype of it being ‘grim up north’ will be quashed in no time!”

Floorbrite will be on stand F05 close to other notable industry names, Vax, Bonasystems and Greyland, to name but a few.

This year has also seen motive8 work with a number of new property developers and housing providers including The Berkeley Group, The Lanesborough, Dormy House,

Barratt Homes and Chelsfield. The company is proud to add Mount Anvil, Bellway and Greystar Student Living to this roster.
