Optimize Your Workplace©

We're a Marsden Company!

What does it mean to be a Marsden company? Well, it means that we are part of one of America’s largest privately-held commercial cleaning and security firms. Supporting 25 distinct brands under one umbrella is unique in our industry. But we think it is a better way to serve our thousands of clients.

National Scope

We have five regional headquarters throughout the United States. Our Northwest Region with several firms services over 300,000,0000 square feet with over 1000 employees and managers who live in the communities we serve.

Local Dedication

We self-perform an astonishing 97% of our business. When we bring new companies into our family we keep their local offices and maintain human resources and recruiting in the community, which allows us to invest in our clients – by really being there. We believe our clients want the hometown team, but also want deep and meaningful support from a sophisticated partner.

Great Resources

One of the benefits of being a part of a firm like Marsden is that we can share resources from all of companies, producing exciting new content. You can listen to our new Building Intelligence Podcast©, find a library of white papers, and follow our blog. All of it is available at our brand new website at www.marsden.com. And check out our new social media presence!

We are the experts that provide you and your stakeholders a clean, cool, safe, and optimized workplace. The result? Employees and customers who return because they feel healthy, comfortable, and secure.

commercial-hvacKeeping your facility comfortable can be a challenge, particularly as seasons change. Having a partner who can design, recommend, install, and maintain your heating and cooling systems can make all the difference.

At Marsden we focus our efforts on outcomes that limit complaints, lower your total cost of operation, and improve efficiency.

The single biggest complaint made to respondents of the Building Operating Management survey was temperature, with 68 percent of respondents saying this was their number one issue. Temperature is also the largest daily source of complaints — 16% of respondents say they field a hot/cold call every day.

How do we innovate? By using predictive analysis to identify measures that result in dramatic cost savings over traditional mechanical approaches. To learn more about our complete line of services click here.

Comprised of 23 companies operating in 46 states, it’s easy to see what Mingo means about national strength.
