Based in Manchester, Tudor has three core service offerings of window cleaning, general cleaning and ancillary cleaning.

To support the current Managing Director, Tony Camilleri, and General Manager, Joanne Youd, the team will be bolstered by a Non-Executive Chairman, David Steventon, who has worked with Foresight on previous investments and a financial director is also being recruited.
Claire Alvarez, Senior Investment Manager, Foresight, commented:
"The investment into Tudor is another exciting opportunity to support a high growth company at the heart of the Manchester community. Tudor is a business renowned for their service, reliability and customer-focus and we are looking forward to working with management to expand contract regions and maximise the exciting opportunities that exist for the Company.”
Tony Camilleri, Managing Director, Tudor Contract Cleaners, commented:
"The amount that Tudor has grown since inception is incredible, having started with a contract at just one hotel and now servicing clients in a number of major UK cities. With Foresight’s help the doors are open for the company to grow exponentially above and beyond what was previously possible and I very much look forward to working with the team to ensure this happens.”
