Canadian Building Maintenance Company First to Receive International Standards Certification

    EDMONTON, Aug. 20 /CNW/ - Bee-Clean Building Maintenance Inc. is pleased
to announce that it is the first Canadian Building Maintenance Company to have
been awarded the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS)
Certification with honours.
    Bee-Clean is one of nine North American companies and institutions to
have received certification. In achieving this milestone, the ISSA has stated
that the "...Organizations that have undergone assessments and officially
become CIMS certified have demonstrated a true commitment to the delivery of
quality service and meeting customer expectations."
    "They are to be commended for having met the challenge of developing and
implementing a management structure that promotes and advances operational
excellence," said ISSA Director of CIMS Dan Wagner.
    CIMS applies to the management, operations, and performance systems of
cleaning organizations. Compliance with the Standard demonstrates that a
cleaning operation is structured to deliver consistent, quality services
designed to meet customers' needs and expectations.
    "The addition of the ISSA certification to Bee-Clean's list of awards is
another step forward in the company's successful growth," said Mark Andrews,
Vice President. "The recognition by ISSA further illustrates our corporate
commitment to industry leading cleaning practices and quality customer care."
    The recognition is particularly constructive as it comes at a time when
contracted cleaning practices and services are under greater scrutiny in both
government and private facilities.
    "This is another example of a Canadian company providing international
leadership in management practices," stated Brian Gingras and Jose Correia,
Owners. "We are delighted to receive international recognition for the quality
work of the dedicated individuals of Bee-Clean."
