Breakfast at C&L Services – Our Way to Say Thank You!

C&L Services – Appreciating Our Colleagues

C&L Services bacon and eggs - sweeping.comAt C&L Services, we believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day, too many people have nothing more than a coffee or a doughnut in the morning.

So showing our co-workers how much we appreciate them by offering them breakfast at the office has become a semi-annual tradition at C&L Services.

Having a chance for all of us to sit down for a meal together gives everyone a time to relax and socialize before starting or ending the workday.

“Such bonding experiences improve employee morale, which makes our staff more engaged and productive,” says Gabe Vitale Jr., Sales Manager of C&L Services. “Team building reinforces the C&L way and brings us all together.”

C&L Services – Crossing Paths In The Morning

The 5:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. time slot was selected because all 6 divisions cross paths at the corporate offices which made the timing perfect for a breakfast.

Over 55 employees stopped by the makeshift kitchen setup outside the mechanics garage, stayed on the clock and were served a delicious breakfast including pancakes stacked high, fresh eggs, sausage, bagels, coffee, hash browns, crispy bacon, juices and some casual music to elevate the celebration.

C&L Services – Happy Employees Mean Happy Clients

Stepping out of the daily activity and mixing things up with a breakfast which shows our appreciation is one of the steps to keeping happy employees and helps us retain happy clients.

“Our goal of customer satisfaction begins with us and taking care of the employees who, in return, take care of our customers”, Gabe Vitale Jr. continued “The event was a smashing success!”.

C & L Services Expands in Northern NJ with Acquisition of Apgar Power Sweeping

New Jersey’s leading street sweeping and property maintenance company opens office in Hampton, NJ

Jackson, NJ – July 20, 2017

C & L Services, one of New Jersey’s leading full-service property maintenance and street sweeping companies, has announced expansion into the Northern New Jersey metropolitan market with the acquisition of Apgar Power Sweeping.

C & L Services completes the acquisition in May 2017 and began local operations in June 2017.  C & L will be able to quickly respond to clients in an extensive North Jersey territory including Sussex, Passaic, Bergen, Essex, Morris, Warren, Hunterdon, Somerset, Union and Middlesex Counties.

C & L has provided customized property maintenance and street cleaning solutions to a wide range of clients for more than 45 years.  C & L provides municipal street cleaning, residential street cleaning and construction street cleaning to a variety of private and governmental clients throughout New Jersey.

Gabe Vitale, Jr., VP of Operations for C & L Services in Jackson stated, “We have been serving all regions of NJ since my Father and Grandfather established the business, however, we want to be able to respond more quickly to our clients in the North Jersey region.  Prior to our acquisition of Apgar, we were sending our crews and materials from central NJ, sometimes taking as much as two hours to respond.  With our new location in Hampton, NJ we can now respond within a half hour or less to client requests.”

Apgar Power Sweeping will continue to operate with their current clients and provide additional services with the support of the C & L team.

Vitale states, “Apgar enjoys a reputation as a responsive, professional street sweeping company.  We found Apgar’s values and commitment to customer satisfaction align with our own, so this acquisition is a perfect fit for our expansion into Northern NJ.”

Street Sweeping – The Streets Are Cleaned Like Magic

Street Sweeping – Technology or Magic?

Arthur Clarke, the famous science fiction author is known for the quote, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”.street sweeping trash - sweeping.com

Of course, most people don’t equate street sweeping with magic…but people do go to sleep at night with dirty, debris-laden streets, and the next morning…voila! the debris and trash is gone from the streets!  Like magic!

I’m not sure anyone really notices (except when the streets are particularly unsightly), but it does sometimes seem like magic to get something as large as a street (or a town or a city) from messy to clean.  And swept clean in a very short period of time.

Street Sweeping – A Village or  A Fleet?

Did you know it takes a village AND a fleet to keep a village clean?  Not only is a village needed to be cleaned, but the people (villagers?) who live in them consider street sweeping to be important enough to carry out regularly.  And then it takes a fleet to keep that village clean.

At C & L Services we’ve been building our fleet (over three generations) and regularly keep many villages, towns, communities, parking lots, stadiums, hospitals, etc clean with street sweeping.

Here’s a recent shot of our fleet yard in Jackson, NJ.

street sweeping fleet 1-sweeping.com

Our fleet has grown to over 30 different vehicles.  Street sweepers for street sweeping.   Pickup trucks for property maintenance portering.  Box trucks for large property maintenance projects, power washing, pavement maintenance, line striping.

We’ve even maintain a full-time staff of mechanics to keep these trucks and vehicles in tip-top shape.

We’re in our 46th year and still growing.

Street Sweeping – It’s All In The Familystreet sweeping charlie vitale - sweeping.com

Our business started in 1971 with Charlie Vitale who had purchased a second-hand sweeper from his brother in law.

Charlie’s brother in law owned a junkyard and there was a second-hand sweeper in good running order and it was priced right.

That’s Charlie driving one of the many street sweepers that were added to the fleet.

Gabe Vitale, Charlie’s son, joined the business shortly after.  Gabe’s son Gabe Vitale Jr. and daughter Lauren Vitale also joined in 2010.  Three Generations!

Street Sweeping – Expanding into Northern NJ

With demand for professional street sweeping, C & L Services has expanded into Northern NJ.  In June of 2017, C & L Services acquired Apgar Power Sweeping, a well respected Street Sweeping company in Northern NJ.

Gabe Vitale, Jr., VP of Operations for C & L Services in Jackson stated, “We have been serving all regions of NJ since my Father and Grandfather established the business, however, we want to be able to respond more quickly to our clients in the North Jersey region.

Prior to our acquisition of Apgar, we were sending our crews and materials from central NJ, sometimes taking as much as two hours to respond.  With our new location in Hampton, NJ we can now respond within a half hour or less to client requests.”
