Dura-Shine Clean Breaks Ground on Pasco Facility

Headquarters Officials from the Pasco Chamber of Commerce and the Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce helped Dura-Shine Clean founders Concepcion Martinez and Carlos Martinez break ground in February on the company’s new facility on Court Street in Pasco. 

Concepcion Martinez and her sons, Carlos and Tino, started Dura-Shine Clean in 1993 in Othello to earn some extra cash. Through hard work, they have grown that side business into one of the most successful commercial and residential cleaning companies in Mid-Columbia. 

Now the company has started construction on a new 6,000-sq.-ft. the Dura-Shine Pasco facility. General contractor Romm Construction will start building the facility at 2616 W. Court St. this month and Carlos Martinez said he anticipates moving in this summer. The new facility will replace the company’s current Tri-Cities’ offices at the Richland Airport. When we first opened our Tri-Cities office in 2004 it was near (the new facility’s location),” said Martinez. At that time, the company only had about a dozen employees. Now it boasts a staff of 46 that cleans about 5 million square feet of commercial space in the Tri-Cities. 

Despite the growth, Martinez said the company maintains its family roots. We are still a small, family-owned business,” he said. “We are very community-oriented and that has contributed to our success. The Martinez matriarch, Concepcion Martinez, still runs the original Othello office, which will remain even after the new facility is complete. And Carlos and his brothers work in the company’s Tri-Cities offices, which does a large amount of commercial and industrial cleaning. 

Martinez said the company has contracts with Toyota of Tri-Cities, HAPO Community Credit Union, REC Silicon, Columbia Basin Health, and last year obtained the cleaning contract for the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo. The company offers commercial, construction and residential cleaning, janitorial services, event cleaning and carpet care.
