Comfort’s story:

Comfort started in 2004 by Andy Green and Lawrence Reeves from a converted garage office in West Bergholt with no financial backing, a few old specialist instruments and a desire to become business owners. Through quality work and customer service initial jobs were completed and repeat business started to become more regular. Due to an increasing workload, in April 2014 they rented a small office space and the work force expanded. In February 2015 they purchased a bigger office in Colchester and within the last year have taken on numerous members of staff.

In August 2012 Andy and Lawrence recognised a need for a water treatment division. Historically commissioning and water treatment have always been segregated and outsourced individually. Comfort leverages a unique position of offering three combined services which historically are performed by three different companies, these being HVAC Commissioning, Water Treatment and Water Hygiene. Comfort carry out all three done under one roof, with one point of contact. Offering this has enabled many cross pollinating opportunities with our existing customers which has been fundamental to the company’s growth and resulted in hugely increasing turnover on projects.

Combining commissioning services with water treatment was a massive leap forward, a few competitors do this but generally sub-contract one element out; this is something Comfort will not do. Full control of engineers is maintained and they are aligned with the company core values.

Comfort Services Group Limited prides itself on providing a first class service – a lot of its business comes through recommendations and the testimonials from the clients also prove this. Comfort is working with large businesses including Heathrow Airport terminals 2, 3, 4 & 5. Also 33 Old Broad Street (a high spec office block in London), Royal Albert Hall, Evelina Children’s Hospital in London and a large data centre in Manchester.

Andy Green, Director said “I consider one of the main success’s of the business being down to the fact that we are extremely innovative, we have brought new methods of working to our industry and continue to evolve and change.” They believe that to provide the best possible services they need to provide staff with 1st class training and run an apprenticeship scheme. Comfort is investing heavily in its staff with a big focus on staff development and education. Comfort has an internal training plan which includes equipment set up to practise with. Self development is both encouraged and supported.

In May 2017 Comfort Commissioning Services Ltd became Comfort Services Group Ltd, this is to reflect and incorporate the changes that have been made to the services the company provides. Comfort now offers even more additional services to the existing ones; these include Duct & Ventilation Cleaning, Replacement of Hollow Supports and Ultrasonic Flow Measurements to name a few. The Water Hygiene clientele has doubled and Comfort is branching out to use the most innovative ways and products currently on the market.
