our history


Pioneer was founded in 1993 on a lasting partnership with the Foulger-Pratt Companies, a family-owned real estate company. We share a common bond in Core Values and Behaviors with our sister companies as we build relationships and reputations throughout the DC market. For 20 years, Pioneer executives and managers have worked together with owners and their representatives to establish cleaning programs that are sustainable and valuable.

Our first account (which we still service today) was 1325 East-West Highway, a 285,000 square foot commercial office building and headquarters to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) in Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. Pioneer has grown from a small service provider operating one account into a mid-sized contractor with 125+ accounts stretching all across the Washington Metropolitan Area.

At Pioneer, every client is unique and special. Our focus is to grow each relationship and account, one at a time. As Pioneer begins its next twenty years, we remain committed to building on our culture of excellence for the benefit of our clients, our employees and our buildings.
