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 awarded 5 year contract by MoD worth £300 million. Providing a national service, managing 3,400 homes across the UK and housing some 6,000 personnel and their families each year.
