If you are looking for information on the Steamatic franchise business opportunity, Steamatic franchises or Steamatic franchising, then you have come to the right place.
Growth is paramount to the longevity of any organization. 2001 was a record breaking year for Steamatic and affiliate companies in many ways. We have seen increased franchise expansion both in the U.S. and internationally, added corporate and national account personnel to support and benefit our System, and have exceeded projections fiscally. Lloyd Swiggum, President, said "As we enter this new century, Steamatic/BMS Technologies is well prepared with people and resources to support our unprecedented growth. While the world and our business will continue to change rapidly, respecting our ideals of quality services and people will continue to be essential to our long term success. I am fortunate to be part of this growth."
In 1948, two Fort Worth businessmen decided to start a carpet cleaning business. From the beginning, it was obvious that their company, Blackmon Mooring, would be different ... innovative. Bill Blackmon and Scott Mooring built a reputation of high standards and reliability that soon made them the leaders in the cleaning and restoration field.
As their market expanded, an idea formed to sell their unique approach to cleaning through franchise opportunities, enabling people around the world to take advantage of their experience and knowledge. In 1968, Blackmon and Mooring formed Steamatic, Inc. to market franchises featuring this unique, new cleaning method. Combining their years of experience with this new cleaning technology, Blackmon and Mooring were able to provide a valuable opportunity to franchisees.
Then, in 1974, Steamatic applied for, and was granted its first U.S. Patent. It involved the Lambrite apparatus and later the Lambrite dry cleaning process. Since then, Steamatic has been granted 21 additional patents in the United States, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Japan, Liechtenstein, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland. Our continual commitment to research, innovation, and the system has been a foundation for growth in both our company owned and franchise operations.
Steamatic continues to grow, and is now being directed by the 3rd generation of the Blackmon and Mooring families. Their dream was to be a full service cleaning company, but has expanded into total indoor environmental cleaning and disaster recovery systems for both homes and businesses. That original vision has propelled Steamatic into a leading position in the multi-billion dollar service industry. We currently support over 400 franchise territories and are represented in 24 countries around the world. In Europe and South America, Steamatic franchises operate under the name BMS Technologies.
STEAMATIC BRINGS A WHOLE NEW DIMENSION TO CLEANING AND RESTORATION. The 21st century has brought unprecedented growth to the Steamatic, Inc. franchise system. With the demand for our services rising in all areas of residential, commercial, and insurance business, there is enormous market potential. You can be a part of this success!
Market demand is the key to operating a successful franchise organization. Because demand for our services is high, we are always working to expand our growing list of contracts with insurance carriers for restoration and recovery services. In January 2002, Steamatic, Inc. signed three additional insurance contracts for both existing and developing markets. The expansion of our long-standing contracts within the billion-dollar insurance restoration industry has made our franchised units some of the most productive operations in the industry.
AN IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE! The key to franchising is the consistency of product and service our customers find from one franchise to another. When you display the sign and logo of a franchise, you're indicating to customers that you follow a particular system. Steamatic has a proven track record of success through both our corporate owned units and our franchise system.
DON'T BE LEFT BEHIND. Mold removal is a fast growing service in all areas. Training is the key for our companies. We have established collaboration with faculty at Duke University Medical Center to provide us with an excellent standard for both training and consulting in microbial remediation.
Steamatic franchisees are professionally trained to handle restoration projects of any size, from small residential to large commercial and industrial. Each franchisee can receive additional support for large projects through our affiliate company, BMS Catastrophe, an international company specializing in large scale and community-wide disaster recovery. No job is ever too large.
A NAME OF STATURE. Steamatic franchisees and our affiliate companies were on the scene immediately following some of the country's largest disasters, helping those affected to recover and continue business operations.
Steamatic has been the recovery specialist for thousands of residents and businesses, all relying on our brand, for the restoration of their valuable emotional and physical property.
