About UBS

About History

Fifty-Five Years and Going Strong

Universal Building Services and Supply Co. was founded in a garage in 1963 by Leonard Brusseau and Joseph Pieri. A willingness to work long hours and an acute attention to detail enabled them to build the company from these humble beginnings. UBS prides itself in offering prompt response, personal contact, efficient service and thorough follow-up to its clients. These principles support the company’s umbrella policy of total client satisfaction.

Starting with basic janitorial office cleaning (the original service), UBS now offers carpet cleaning, hard and resilient floor carewindow cleaningemergency clean up, and numerous other services. To strengthen its position as a leading provider of full-service cleaning and maintenance, UBS also added maintenance supply sales to the services offered by the company.

Now, fifty-five (55) years later, UBS remains family owned and services well over 30 million square feet of diverse building space throughout Northern and Central California. We have grown steadily to become a major presence in the field of total building cleaning maintenance throughout California, and have offices in Richmond (also the location of the corporate offices), Concord, San Jose, Sacramento, Petaluma, and Modesto.

At UBS, we remain dedicated to continuing those principles that have contributed to our longevity, stability and growth, and have resulted in the satisfaction and loyalty of our clients. With experienced leadership, trained workers, and a growing base of satisfied clientele, Universal Building Services and Supply Co. is poised to meet the challenges of the future with confidence.
