Since the start of this year, Mears has now entered into partnership arrangements with four of the seven Circle Anglia Group partners. 

Commenting, Bob Holt, Chief Executive of Mears Group, said:
“We would not achieve these levels of contract wins without the great references that we get from our existing clients. Our strategy, based upon long term partnerships, delivering customer excellence, innovation and investment in our people, continues to be the driver behind winning good quality contracts that provide clear and sustainable margins.Our order book stands at £1.7 billion and the visibility of future revenues has been further enhanced.”

The Social Housing division provides rapid response and planned maintenance to Local Authorities and Registered Social Landlords in the UK, and is also a provider of building services for capital improvement works such as the Decent Homes programme, which aims to ensure all social housing meets set standards of decency. The Domiciliary Care division provides support to people, who remain in their own homes, through the provision of personal care services which are delivered principally as part of outsourcing arrangements with Local Authorities.
