“A strong commitment to the environment, and playing our part in protecting it, has always been a core guiding principle at Ground Control” Simon Morrish, CEO, Ground Control
Though initially established in 1973, in 2004 four directors re-mortgaged their homes to invest with Simon and Kim Morrish to purchase Ground Control from the founder. From this point on, the managers decided to diversify the services we offered, and also the sectors that we worked for. Another key milestone in our history occurred in 2010, when we acquired Vale Contract Services as an attempt to move into the public domain, giving us the chance to work for housing associations, education, emergency services, and councils.
The very first contract that Ground Control was entrusted with was providing Grounds Maintenance to several Tesco stores. Many years later, and this has now grown into caring for hundreds of Tesco stores across the UK. Other large clients include NHS, Sainsbury’s, Severn Trent Water, Halfords, Travelodge and many others. Our vast sector experience now encompasses a variety of industries throughout the country, and Ground Control has learnt something from every industry we’ve worked for. Outstanding service is the linchpin of our business, producing over 98.6% annual client site retention each year and our current NPS score of 44.

Securing these large clients is a testament to our strong work ethic and ability to deliver a diverse range of services to multiple sectors and clients. We are proud of our dynamic, flexible, and eco-conscious approach to work, making sure that each and every client receives a bespoke range of services as regularly or as infrequently as they desire.
