Española company lands $52M contract at LANL

SANTA FE, N.M. — Performance Maintenance Inc. of Española has won a five-year, $52 million subcontract to provide janitorial services and supplies to Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Performance Maintenance is a 25-year-old family-run business that started as a part-time cleaning business. It now has 170 employees and provides commercial and residential building maintenance, food service and hotel supplies as well as janitorial services. It also offers a line of green cleaning products.

“Enhancing opportunities for small businesses like PMI to provide goods and services to the laboratory is a priority,” said Thom Mason, LANL’s director, in a news release. “The laboratory needs to partner with regional companies to carry out our work, and there’s also an important economic benefit to Northern New Mexico.”

Eric Quintana of PMI said, ““Growing up with this business has helped show me that hard work and patience really does pay off. Nothing comes easy and seeing from where we started to where we are now is really amazing. Watching my parents start out as cleaners themselves and building this company to what it is today has been an honor to be a part of.”
