About Performance Plus

Serving The Greater Northern Indiana & SW Michigan Area

Aaron Weinraub created Gary Window Cleaning in 1917. It was passed down to his son Paul Weinraub in the 1930’s, where he grew it into a full service janitorial business. Paul changed the name to Superior Cleaning Services. When Paul passed away in 1967, it was passed down to his son-in-law, Michael Saks. Over the next few decades Michael turned it into a thriving regional contract janitorial service company, with the addition of other services including window cleaning, floor maintenance and construction cleaning.

Michael’s brother, Alan Saks, joined the company during the 1970’s to run the Janitorial Operations division of the Gary, IN office. This was the beginning of a partnership that lasted over 40 years.

In 2002 Michael and Alan merged all of their companies to include the South Bend, Michigan City and Indianapolis offices to form The Performance Companies, Inc. (dba Performance Plus).

To extend the family tradition Michael’s daughter, Paula Broutman, joined the company in 2010. The following year Michael Saks reduced his responsibilities to allow Paula to step forward as President. After Michael passed away in 2020, Paula retained full ownership to keep the business family owned. Today, Performance Plus is a women owned business and a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) in the state of Indiana. As we look to the future, we forsee the same high standard of service and dedication to our customers that our company has provided to local businesses for over 100 years.
