In the summer of 2004, one of our owners was working in construction between semesters at university. When the project wrapped up, he offered to clean the building for extra income. Soon after returning to school to complete his business degree, he hired his first employee to help manage what had become a burgeoning business. We’ve expanded significantly since our humble beginnings in 2004, when we were Montreal Office Maintenance. As we entered new markets and crossed provincial borders, we streamlined our name. Now we’re simply MOM.
Our business was born from the insight that while this industry is crowded with skilled labour, it’s lacking in quality, service and innovation. We believe our owner-operator approach is transforming the industry from janitorial service providers into customer service specialists. Our goal is to provide clients with a valued service in a manner that enables them to remain focused on growing their business while we handle the dirty work.
At MOM, we embrace change in our business. We’ve onboarded training technologies and innovative service offerings. We continuously invest in new equipment and work with suppliers to test new products. We’ve made additions and acquisitions to extend our service coverage. And we use reporting and analysis tools to deliver superior cleaning results. Behind the front lines, we’ve also grown our infrastructure and management systems so that we can service any size account. In fact, it’s the back-office support that enables our front-line team to succeed.
Our team is led by partners Mitchell Sweibel and Jeremy Laufer. Both hold business degrees and both learned the business from the ground up. In 2013, the team was honoured to be named a finalist for the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award for the province of Quebec. The partners are supported by two primary departments — Operations and Office — each with exceptional teams that provide mutual support every single day.
