Our History

International integrated facilities management

Here at OCS we are very proud of our long history - the company is now in its fifth generation of family ownership.

The business was started in 1900 by Frederick William Goodliffe operating as a sole trader under the name of The New Century Window and General Cleaning Company.


Initially, the company comprised one part-time man equipped with a ladder, a pail and a pushcart.

From such modest beginnings, OCS has grown into an international group providing integrated facilities services in over 50 countries
