About Potomac Services Inc.

Potomac Services, started its operation in 1994 with one employee and one small contract to provide landscaping for an apartment building. Over the past two decades, the company has successfully served government and private sector clients in facilities management & operations and maintenance  (561210), landscaping services (561730) and janitorial services (561720) among others. Potomac Services has assembled an exceptional team of experienced and dedicated managers and staff who are widely recognized in their respective fields for their professionalism, knowledge and excellence.

The founder, Mr. Thomas Berhane, noticed early the trend in clients wanting a company that could handle both the grounds maintenance and their overall facilities; providing all-inclusive solutions for their total facilities management needs. It was at this time that Potomac Services expanded into other areas to offer clients additional services in facilities management, operations and maintenance, custodial services, snow removal, warehousing and storage, courier services and document management. This decision has helped Potomac Services experience tremendous growth in the past two decades.

The growth of Potomac Services can be attributed not only to its ability to combine experienced leadership and management with exceptional technical skills to meet client expectations on time and within budget, but also to the firm’s philosophy: “By carefully listening to customers, Potomac Services will develop a thorough understanding of customer needs and requirements relative to each project undertaken on their behalf.” As a result, the company has established a record of high-quality performance and complete customer satisfaction. Its employees are cleared to work at secure facilities and the company has built a strong reputation among its clients.
