Made to measure for Schuh

We are delighted to introduce our latest client interview video, this time with Nicky McLellan, Facilities Coordinator for Schuh at their Distribution Centre in Bathgate and their Head Office building in Livingstone.

Spectrum is delighted to work at both locations and we were pleased that Nicky was able to take time to chat about the range of services we provide at each of the location.

You would be forgiven for thinking that Schuh is a German retail brand, in fact the name was inspired by the German fashion footwear magazine, Schuhe. However, Schuh began with one store in Edinburgh back in 1981 and has grown to be one of the biggest high street retailers in the UK and Ireland.  Fittingly, their first retail venture in Europe was in Oberhausen, Germany where they opened a store in 2015.

Throughout the noughties, Schuh’s online presence grew to meet the demand of consumers who were increasingly willing to buy footwear online.  The innovative retailer has carried on its tradition of challenging conventional retailing with its ecommerce offering with the introduction of initiatives like 365 day customer service.

The fantastic expansion of the retail outlets and the growth of the online store created the obvious need for high quality head office accommodation and a highly efficient distribution centre, both are now firmly established in central Scotland.

Spectrum is delighted to provide a full range of services to both centres.  These services include; routine daily cleaning of offices, toilets, shower rooms, locker rooms, Board and meeting rooms, stairways, receptions, restaurants, break out areas and kitchens.  These daily services also include a full waste management service at both sites.

In addition to this we provide, IT equipment deep cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, window cleaning, deep cleaning of flooring in the retail outlet, and deep cleaning and sanitation of work stations.  All in all, it is a comprehensive range of services specially tailored to suit the Schuh operation and ensure the head office and distribution centre are always clean and ready for their busy workforce 24 hours a day.

To compliment the cleaning services, we also supply a wide variety of products and consumables for their washrooms, hand sanitisers and feminine hygiene toilet vending machines.  In addition to this, we provide barrier matting, logo mats and even temporary barrier matting for inclement weather.

We are grateful to Nicky for taking the time to talk about the Spectrum service and a little about why he chose to work with Spectrum.  We hope you find the video useful, and if you have any questions about the services we provide in Livingston and Bathgate, please email us at or call us on 0141 887 5000, we will be delighted to assist in any way we can.
