Meet Our New Partner: New York Maintenance Group

Category:

Nicole, Joe and Danielle

When Nicole Cicillini-Balsamo’s parents, Angelo and Marie, started New York Maintenance in 2009, they had a vision of creating a company where employees would feel like they’re part of a family. Today, with Nicole’s husband, Joe, and sister, Danielle, involved in the company, NYM Group truly is a family business.

But as Nicole tells us, it’s still important to have over 60 employees involved and feeling like they are part of the family. To help accomplish that, their company has taken several unusual steps including developing an employee and human resources software tool that keeps everyone focused on day-to-day tasks and company updates. They have also developed driver incentives to help their sweeper operators stay safe as well as productive.

Somewhere, in a family scrapbook or photo album, there is a photo of five-year-old Gary and six-year old Caroline Megliola standing in front of a sweeper. In the early 1970s, their dad, a full-time firefighter, started a parking lot maintenance job sweeping and picking by hand, eventually purchasing a small Tenant sweeper. By 1979 he purchased a new MASCO sweeper to develop a side business driving cross-country to CA to pick up a new Masco sweeper.

Air Sweep Inc. is currently helmed by Gary Megliola and partner, Nikki Serafino, along with Gary’s sister Caroline, and is still very much a family owned and operated company based in Agawam, Massachusetts. All told, the company has over forty-five years of commercial service under its belt.

An Extraordinary Example of Perseverance

The year was 1990 when Clean Sweep, Inc. began in Baker, Louisiana (a town in east Baton Rouge). “We started sweeping parking lots using a dust pan and broom,” says co-founder, Bridget Burge. “Later we added a $100 Wal-Mart lawnmower hoping to mow a few lawns, too.” The beginning may have been meager but today Clean Sweep is a company to admire.

Born Out of Need

It all started when Bridget’s business partner Warren worked at UPS and was threatened with a possible strike. “What would we do if there was no income coming in?” Out of concern of a possible job loss, the sweeping company was created. Later, in a brilliant business move spurred by fulfilling customer need, Clean Sweep added concrete and asphalt repair to their repertoire.
