Owned and operated by the Murch family since 1978, 4M is one of the largest commercial cleaning companies in the country, servicing 85 million square feet every day.
In 1978, Mitch Murch, Sr. started 4M Building Solutions in true entrepreneurial fashion in St. Louis, Missouri. Mitch, at the age of 50 and completely broke at the time, saw an opportunity and took it. The owners of a 750,000 square foot office building in St. Louis were unhappy with their cleaning service. They demanded first-class-quality cleaning as a premier building in the area, but could not find a company to meet their high expectations. And so Mitch’s vision to provide quality cleaning to large facilities began. With zero life savings after a failed business venture, Mitch borrowed $36,000 from his best friend and began service at the 750,000 square foot buildings, all within 30 days! The buildings’ owners had the trust, faith and confidence in Mitch to award him these premier buildings. Thus, Mitch Murch’s Maintenance Management made their mark very quickly and became known as "The Quality Contract Cleaner" and quickly grew to be the largest janitorial contractor in St. Louis, Missouri.
Over the years, Mitch Murch Maintenance Management has progressively grown to where it stands today. Renamed in 2014 to 4M Building Solutions, the company now generates over $60 million in annual revenue, operating in 14 Midwestern and Southeastern states, with Regional Offices in Indianapolis, San Antonio, Illinois, Kansas City, Tampa and Jacksonville. We work with over 3,000 team members cleaning more than 85 million square feet a night!
We believe our success has everything to do with our core values that started back in 1978 and are still with us today: customer intimacy, integrity, 360 degree team work and innovation. Tim Murch, 4M’s President, CEO, Owner and Mitch’s oldest son, said proudly, “These values were all defined by Mitch. That is a special legacy that will live forever.”
“Our success to date has been incredible and I look forward to building on that to achieve our mission, ‘to provide world-class, innovative building solutions to world-class partners with energy, enthusiasm and excitement by team members who share in the success of 4M.’ As you can see we are always progressively moving forward with our vision, ‘We are the absolute best building solutions partner,’” said President, CEO, and Owner Tim Murch.
Our Headquarters facilities are relatively new, and 4M maintains the buildings to an ongoing excellent condition. 4M has worked very hard to keep our facilities neat and clean, and they are going the extra mile to please us continuously delivering all their value added benefits.- 1,200,000 square foot World Headquarters
