History

LegacyOfService

Established in 1957, Varsity Facility Services was founded on integrity, excellence and innovation. With more than 50 years of applying these ideals to our business, we have built a sound foundation of service for our customers. Many of Varsity’s innovations have come from creating solutions for our customers’ needs. In the 1960’s, Varsity pioneered a cable coating process for Mountain Bell Telephone. Varsity’s founders coated miles of telephone wire as an extension of our janitorial contract. In 1997, we were the first to build a corporate university offering online training to all employees. Today, Varsity University offers over 300 courses to keep employees up to date on developments in janitorial services, maintenance services and construction services. In 2001, we developed new handheld and web-based technologies to facilitate our quality assurance programs, and to help us drive continuous improvement in our company. In 2007, Varsity was proud to be chosen as the first building service contractor to be certified by the ISSA CIMS certification—and we did so with honors. In 2011, we rebranded our company as “Varsity Facility Services,” exemplifying the diversity of services we offer. Over the past 10 years we’ve demonstrated our commitment to the environment not only through our green cleaning programs, but also by building our own LEED Platinum facility. Today we are an international service provider spanning the United States and Canada. Our commitment to integrity, innovation, and the environment has never been stronger. What service can we provide for you?
