Here for the long term

Since 2002 we have provided a range of services to clients in local authorities, public transport, aviation and construction market sectors, as well as private sector businesses.

AGS was borne out of a desire to do things differently where each individual matters and feels they are contributing; to do things better, to delight our customers and to go home safely and with a smile on our faces.

Growing steadily into an established business with loyal customers and staff, our values include a strong belief that our success comes from working as a team and in collaboration with our clients.

Strategic alliances forged with many other key players in the specialist cleaning industry and collaborative working have been key to our many successes. This strategy compliments our long-term desire to remain an independent service provider.

Right first time, on time


Valuing our staff has always been key and we pride ourselves in providing support, training and development opportunities throughout their time with us.  Nurturing staff in this way has produced some outstanding results.

Living Wage

We have been a fair employer since the beginning, paying the equivalent of or more than the Government living wage.  We believe this allows us to choose the best candidates for the job.

Gender Pay Gap/Female Staff

Our gender pay gap statistics are exceptional, with a high proportion of female staff across all areas of the business.  We were ahead of the trend in this respect, finding that more equal representation brings positive benefits.

  • Recycling bins in all offices, although paper free where possible
  • Coffee pods sent for recycling
