Our Story

MML was established in 2001 to deliver the FM and maintenance requirements for the John Lewis Partnership’s department stores.

We have worked with many of the UK’s leading retailers and, in 2014, started to expand our customer-base to support additional sectors; we are currently responsible for over 17,000 sites across the UK.

We have experience of managing a diverse portfolio of properties including town centre and out-of-town retail outlets, distribution centres, corporate headquarters and offices, residential properties, restaurants, hotels, pubs, gyms, telecommunication sites and food production sites (including farms and abattoirs).

In 2019 MML was purchased by its management board from its previous owners. Our new management structure brings our customers additional benefits, as we have improved our ability to tailor our service offering to meet our customers’ individual requirements, as well as having the flexibility to embrace emerging technologies.

Our Approach

Our focus is always on Customer Service Excellence, continually asking ourselves ‘how can we do it better?’ Our drive for improvement delivers efficiencies and, combined with our flexible supply chain solutions, enables us to rapidly implement emerging technologies and supply chain innovations.

Our managing agent business model is proof that well-managed, structured, sub-contracted delivery services bring extensive cost and service benefits to customers. In fact, as we are neutral with both our technology and service delivery partner selection, we can design a suite of services which are best suited to your unique operation. We enable our customers to choose between keeping their own supply chain, tapping into the benefits of using ours, or a mixture of the two options.

We have a proven ability to deliver savings not only through procurement and supplier management activities but also through our operational processes.

We know that every customer is very different and an out of the box solution is not what our customers need or want. We therefore tailor our model based on your individual requirements to design a service that supports your operations.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be committed to delivering customer service excellence

Our Values

Our values are who we are and who we strive to be; we live by our values and they are at the core of everything we do:


Integrity and fairness are at the heart of all our activities. We are transparent and honest and are accountable for our actions.


We respect our colleagues, customers and suppliers and recognise our external relationships are with people, not companies. We operate with a collaborative approach and value the importance of teamwork and recognise that first class communication is vital. We are considerate to others and to the environment. We provide a friendly, supportive and rewarding workplace.


We strive to deliver customer service excellence; we are passionate about what we do, and we do it well, every time. Safety is our priority and we ensure our managed sites are compliant. We are proactive in seeking solutions and we take ownership of tasks. We are well-organised, reliable and consistent and pride ourselves on delivering excellent value and efficiency.


We are always evolving and seeking innovative solutions. Our delivery model is flexible and adaptable, and we are proactive in seeking efficiencies and service improvements. We use data to provide insight into our operations and to identify trends and opportunities. We strive to progress by incorporating emerging technologies into our offering.


Our People

Our success lies with the knowledge, experience, and commitment of our people, many of whom have worked as part of the same team for over a decade. MML has been owned by its Board since 2019 and since then the company has been reinvigorated with investment, not only into its infrastructure and new offices but also in the development of the business and its people.

Our ethos is to Put our People First, treat them with respect and to provide a rewarding working environment. We believe that colleagues who are happy in their work will continue to be committed to delivering customer service excellence, first time, every time. Our ethos manifests itself in our team spirit and the longevity of service of many members of the team.
