Performance Maintenance Inc (PMI)
Española, NM – Eric Quintana grew up in the Española Valley but left New Mexico to pursue career opportunities. After identifying residential and commercial cleaning as a large business opportunity in the region, Eric and his wife founded PMI in 1994. PMI began as residential and commercial cleaning company and has diversified to include local institutions, as well as state and federal government contracting components. In addition, the company has designed and is marketing a green solutions cleaning system that uses only environmentally certified products, reduces the amount of packaging sent to landfills, utilizes recycled paper products, uses equipment with less environmental impact and employs high performance entry way systems that prevents contaminates from entering a building. This holistic approach to building maintenance is unique and offers a value to customers who want to comply with eco-friendly standards and federal buildings that must comply with a federal mandate to reduce their carbon footprint. Throughout the growth and development of the company, PMI has received assistance from the Greater Espanola Valley Community Development Corporation, the New Mexico Small Business Development Center and received a small business loan from the New Mexico Small Business Administration.
