Our Story

It all started with one little van...

The Mears story began in 1988 when a little known maintenance contractor in Gloucestershire, with a tiny work force, took its first steps as Mears Limited. Within four years Mears won its first local authority contract and achieved a remarkable £2.5 million turnover! All from a cosy portacabin.


Mears celebrated a whopping turnover of £203.5 million and an order book reaching £1billion for the first time. Mears Group won ‘Decade of Excellence’ and ‘Best Performing Share Over 5 Years’ at the AIM Awards.
