Experienced, Equipped, Meticulous

Palmer & Co provides window cleaning and high-level access to clients in both the public and private sector. Day to day we’re kept busy by our building agent, facilities management, operations, contractor and construction clients but we also do a lot of work with production companies, event management and signage businesses.

Some days it’s all about high level access for window cleaning, building inspections, glazing, cladding, roof works, warehouses, universities, retail centres and telecoms. And on others we’re applying our skills and equipment to sporting events, wind farms, power stations, hotels, warehouses, and military installations.

From historical landmark buildings to the most modern of commercial office blocks. From regular contracts to one-of requirements. From public access locations to closed off private grounds. We tailor the system and team around each and every job to get the most cost and time effective solution. Because we are disclosure checked, fully trained, highly accredited and comprehensively insured, our clients trust us with their service needs – and their reputation.

We’ve been offering professional window cleaning and building maintenance contracts for over 85 years. Whatever you need, we have probably done it before.

Customer Service

The right equipment and the right people means we do the job well, do it safely and finish it on time.

Health & Safety

You cannot compromise on quality control, health or safety. So, neither do we.


Our experience has informed our innovation but our values lead our service.

Quality Control

We plan and check every single job, every single time.

About Us

We’ve been in business since 1932 and since that first day, we’ve worked hard to grow and develop, to meet our clients’ changing needs and embrace new technology. Whilst the equipment may have changed over the years, our customer service values haven’t, and our commitment to reliability, safety and cost effectiveness remains ever at the heart of what makes Palmer & Co the most established business in the trade. We cover the whole of Scotland, and offer a comprehensive service from start to finish. We doubt you’ll find a better or more committed team.

Our Service Approach

Our highly skilled team is directly employed, managed and coordinated from our Glasgow and Edinburgh offices. As each day progresses, we use our mobile job management and tracking systems to share project details and documentation on the move, and to keep our customers informed. Every job has a file, and in there you’ll find your job spec, risk assessment, method statements, site restrictions, timelines and sign off documentation. We work hard to make this as smooth as possible for you to monitor.

It’s not just about the machinery. It’s about the added expertise and the knowledge that safety, efficiency and quality will never be compromised.

Our QHSE Guarantee

Working at height comes with a risk but it’s one that we take seriously. Each of our drivers, operators and management team are fully trained and qualified, as well as insured. We take nothing for granted so as well as our continuous training and safety refreshers, we audit every piece of equipment on check in, and check out.  Our accreditations speak for themselves, but the proof is in our ongoing procedures and systems which we document for every project, allowing you to maintain your high standards too. We offer complete peace of mind.

Where We Operate

Palmer & Co is proud to cover a wide area, built on our reputation. Our high access window cleaning and maintenance is available throughout the whole of Scotland and the North. And that means everything, from individual sites to full portfolios, through to commercial, retail and public-sector customers.
