by Chris Howells, Chairman of Mountjoy and The Quarr Group Managing Director
Mountjoy Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Quarr Group, which specialises in providing support services to the public and private sectors. Contract Catering, Contract Cleaning and Building and Facilities Maintenance are delivered through its wholly owned subsidiaries Pabulum, Nviro and Mountjoy, respectively.
Our roots are based on the Isle of Wight, where our parent company was first established in 1992 as Island Group 90. This later became the Quarr Group in 1995, comprising Mountjoy and our two sister companies. We became a separate limited company in 2006 and now have our head office in Farlington, Portsmouth.
Today, Mountjoy is a successful and growing company providing professional, safe and high-quality construction, refurbishment, and maintenance services across southern England and London.
Our company culture and ethos is built around our values of being professional, honest, versatile and committed. Integrity is built-in to the foundations of our business and we strive to provide the highest standards of quality, safety and technical excellence.
We have recently established our Five Year Plan for 2016 – 2021. Our ambition for this is to develop and continually improve our company in the following areas:
Customers & Communities: To build long-term and successful partnerships with our clients and the local communities in which we work.
Culture: To create a positive culture in Mountjoy that benefits our clients, our staff, our suppliers and our shareholders.
Expertise: To develop our technical expertise and organisational skills so we continue to deliver right first time, every time.
Services: To continually improve our services so we can deliver more for our customers and end users.
