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 acquired Independent Living Services Scotland and saw the launch of Mears Nurseplus – enabling Mears to offer nurse-led support in the home to adults and children with additional health needs including spinal injury, brain injury and degenerative conditions.
