A property maintenance company with humble beginnings.
It all started back in 2008 when our CEO, Michael Morozov, was attending the Schulich School of Business at York University. During that time, York University went on strike for a record breaking 85 days. Some students decided to go on a 2-month vacation, while others worked part time jobs. However, Michael decided to use his entrepreneurial drive to roll up his sleeves and start making some extra spending cash for the summer. He had the vision to open a residential window cleaning company. Michael maxed out his student credit card and purchased some ladders, squeegees/buckets, and an old minivan.
At first, the company started with a few door to door sales reps and a few window cleaners. These numbers grew rapidly as time passed, and Michael began to see the value in commercializing/ consolidating an industry that was very archaic with no real industry leader. As opposed to pursuing a career in Investment Banking, Michael leveraged his experience and knowledge gained at the Schulich School of Business and created “Aurum Window Cleaning.”
Fast forward 9 years since inception and Aurum is now the leading player in the industry; with over 18 locations across North America, servicing more than 30,000 customers a year and employing over 250 staff members/contractors. Aurum continues to strive and innovate in an industry that has been dormant for far too long.
