About the company

Optiqo was founded in Sweden in 2012 and has 25 years experience in the international cleaning and facility management (FM) business. Optiqo is a secure partner which enables customers to reach a high quality in their services and get a daily overview of actions taken. The market for cleaning and FM services is characterized by constant changes and the only thing that can be sure is that it will continue to change. Thanks to Optiqo’s ability to quickly adapt and respond to new trends and changing customer needs, we offer our customers flexible, functional quality solutions that work around the clock, all year round, regardless of the employees’ cultural background, language skills and level of education.

As a service provider of quality control, it becomes increasingly important to develop systems that enhance the clients’ core business. In many businesses, a working internal property-maintenance is critical. The clients’ customers, the users, require that it has to look neat, clean and hygienic in offices, public spaces and on the property. We understand this and we make it easy, at the same time as being flexible, responsive and accommodating.

Optiqo emphasizes the importance to provide business-related services and establish a long-term partnership with our customers. Through close collaboration, we can offer services with strategic FM development and gain a deeper understanding of their needs. Together we will find solutions, which not only highlights the technical aspects, but also the possibilities.
