high demand. In fact, the broad Spring Grove portfolio has been adopted by more than two-thirds of Saalfeld’s customers. Spring Grove is responding to the

market’s needs and bringing distributors nearly 20 new SKUs in skincare. The of- fering includes anti- bacterial soaps, lotion soaps

and sanitizers

– in both foam and gel formulations. What’s more, Spring Grove will offer an E2 prod- uct – a one-step foam- ing handwashing and sanitizing solution that was specifically created for food pro- cessing environments. Because of Saal- feld’s long history in foodservice, JanSan distributors have the opportunity to grow exponentially within that industry. “Dispensers will complete the skin-

care offering, and will make Spring Grove ideal for a private-label soap pro- gram…Spring Grove will make avail- able the option to feature a distributor’s name and contact information right on the dispenser,” said Michael Feenan, Vice President and General Manager, Saalfeld Redistribution.

Disinfectants and Degreasers

When it comes to chemicals, Spring

Grove’s new expansion promises a broad and versatile lineup. More than 50 SKUs are planned – covering floor care, carpet care, glass cleaner, disinfectants, degreas- ers and warewash. It’s just another way that distributors can profit from the large and growing foodservice segment. How- ever, Spring Grove’s concentration on restroom and breakroom areas provides

opportunities in the industrial and medical markets too. Armed with these new Spring Grove lines, distributors will have value-brand options in nine of the 13 product lines within

the chemicals

category (as defined by the ISSA Report). This helps distributors meet the needs of most customers. And thanks to a balance of quality and price, Spring Grove may help distributors replace duplicate in- ventory from multiple manufacturers which could significantly re- duce inventory invest-

ment and accelerate inventory turns. Spring Grove is a full line of essential restroom and breakroom supplies with “the right balance of quality, performance, and value.” Products include towel and tis- sue, napkins, film and foil, paper plates, hot and cold cups, food trays, foam-hinged containers and dinnerware, skincare, Jansan chemicals and dispensers. Spring Grove is only available through Saalfeld Redistribution.

Saalfeld is focused on redistribution ex-

clusively. Recognized as an industry-lead- ing asset manager, marketer, and service provider, Saalfeld specializes in helping distributors grow their business by ex- panding into new product lines. Founded in Cincinnati in 1919, Saalfeld operates nine regional hubs with more than three million square feet of warehouse space and 200 delivery vehicles.

ITW Offers Four Strategies for Limiting the Spread of the Flu

hand washing is the single most effective way to reduce the spread of illness. Post proper hand washing proto- col in public facilities and ensure employees wash their hands frequently with anti- microbial hand soap and wa- ter. In areas without sinks, offer hand washing and sanitizing wipes to ensure proper hand hygiene. 2) Disinfect high-touch surfaces fre-

quently: High-touch areas should be cleaned more frequently than other areas within a facility.

Use a multi-purpose

disinfectant with a fast dwell time. When selecting a disinfectant, it is important to consider contact time and cleaning abil- ity. Common high-touch surfaces to con- sider include door handles, railings, light switches, desks, keyboards, telephones, chairs, desks and tables. 3) Encourage the use of pre-moist- ened wipes: Providing cleaning staff with pre-moistened wipes simplifies the cleaning process and ensures cleaners fol- low correct chemical dilution ratios. Pre- moistened wipes also eliminate exposure to chemical concentrates and reduce the chance of cross-contamination.

4) Review best practices for disin- fection with staff: Instruct cleaning staff Industrial • Institutional • Food Service 800.443.9536 | 913.397.9889 |

in appropriate procedures for disinfection as well as protecting themselves from picking up viruses during their work. In addition to making sure staff understand the proper procedures for disinfecting, it is equally important that cleaners under- stand the significant role they play in com- bating disease.

QuestVapco Showcases Short-Run Private Label Products at ISSA 2013

Disposable Wipers

In addition to its line of well-known branded cleaning formulations, QuestVap- co is showcasing its private label capabili- ties at this year’s ISSA. As a single-source manufacturer, QuestVapco is highlighting its ability to meet short run needs and offer custom formulations in low minimums. “Distributors are becoming more inter- ested in carrying private label products for a variety reasons,” notes Alex Pratt, director of technical services at Quest- Vapco Corporation. “As distributors en- joy a healthy profit margin and no brand competition with private label products, their customers are experiencing the value proposition of a high performing product with a good price point. It’s a win-win situation.” QuestVapco offers over 700 formula-


Industrial Marking Products

tions available for private label including aerosols (2 oz. to 24 oz.) and liquids (3 oz. to 55 gallon drums). Custom packaging is also available reflecting standard accept- able case packs.

Distributors interested in expanding their lines through custom formulation and packaging can rely on QuestVapco’s capabilities and experience. The company is skilled in providing private label prod- ucts for customers, including those that target specific niche markets, and creates packaging and labeling that allows them to obtain margins not found in the industrial distribution channel. “We have one customer that sells a spe- cific product to a high-end retail segment,“ notes Pratt. “We designed a distinctive label to solidify the brand identity, which has become extremely strong. In fact, it is the only product recommended by a popular television show connected to the industry.” Discover the opportunities that Quest-

Vapco private labeling can deliver in pric- ing, positioning, and profit margins. Visit for more informa- tion. ISSA booth # 1575. n
