Our history

Challenger is a well-established national strategic outsourcing specialist demonstrating strong growth and client retention since inception.

Managing Director, Vadim Gurevich started the business in 1994 with two employees and a single cleaning contract in NSW. Today, Challenger’s team comprises of around 1000 employees servicing some of the most successful hospitality, food and beverage, commercial, education and government operations in the country.

Challenger’s strength lies in its network of long standing industry relationships. Relationships that cultivate decades of over delivery to many of the most successful property owners, managers, developers and hoteliers around Australia.

It’s our ability to work in sync with them that has allowed us to grow to ever increasing heights of excellence.

In 2019 Challenger Services Group acquired Turbo Chute, to expand our national operation and include more outsourced cleaning services into our portfolio.

Turbo Chute Australia was founded in 1999 on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane. It offers Australia’s first garbage chute cleaning service and has performed over 3000 successful cleans in hundreds of high-rise buildings around South-East Queensland.

Turbo Chute Australia then developed and tested a patented dual action scrub and pressure wash system specifically tailored to handle the garbage chutes of each and every building, enabling thorough cleaning of the entire inside of the chute, using significantly less water and chemicals than all other systems on the market.

With thousands of results in Australia and patent in hand, Turbo Chute is without doubt the number 1 garbage chute cleaning company in the country.
