Specialty Services 

Township has developed a facilities services division to complement the janitorial & stationary engineering services we provide. This came out of our philosophy of providing full service one stop shopping. Unlike many janitorial companies that simply try to do extra work with their regular staff, we hired a person with a facilities background who manages specific individuals who work only for this division. This allows our regular staff to focus on their cleaning responsibilities and for our facilities services staff to complete the more technical projects.
