Who We Are

Humble Beginnings

Supreme Maintenance Organization (SMO) was founded in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1989 by David Murphy and Gary Collins.  Having just graduated college, the partners started the promising company in their parent’s home with a work ethic, Mom’s vacuum, and $200.  They soon landed their first cleaning contract and hired a few family members and friends to help out.

Today, SMO is recognized throughout the Southeast for:

  • Dependable customer service
  • Cost effective cleaning and facility maintenance solutions
  • Professional stable management
  • Innovation
  • Extensive employee training and development through SMO University

Internal Customers

As the company continues to grow, David and Gary have never forgotten where they came from and it is these humble beginnings that have given them a deep appreciation for their employees and what they do on a daily basis.  This is one of the reasons that we consider our valuable employees to be internal customers.

Building Partnerships That Last

Building partnerships that last has been the foundation for the company’s success.  Given the cost of acquiring new customers, it only makes sense to keep the customers that we have.

We understand that our role is to contribute to the success of our customers by being a valued team member.  This means that the customer’s needs will be met consistently and cost effectively without needing the daily intervention of the client and one more reason why, the more you know, the more you need… S M O.
