FOR V-AIR SOLID Vectair Systems’ V-Air SOLID has won the ‘Best Innovation Award’ in the Washroom Hygiene category in the 2016 Clean India Awards.

A panel of eight judges chose V-Air SOLID as the most innovative product for its simplicity, use of new technology and its strong environmental credentials, amongst

other factors. The award entry consisted of a written entry and then a presentation to four of the judges at the Clean India Exhibition in Mumbai.

This is the fourth international award that V-Air SOLID has won since its launch a year ago, having already won an International Green Apple Environment Award, the Cleaning Show Innovation Award in the Washroom Hygiene category (UK), and a Sanitary Maintenance Distributor Choice Award (USA).

The Clean India Awards prides itself on being the most prestigious awards for

the Indian Cleaning Industry. It praises companies and innovators for their trend setting products or solutions which can make a difference to the evolving Indian Cleaning Industry. The changing cleaning demands call for new technology, adaptability to local conditions, cost effectiveness, environment friendliness, easy usability, optimum productivity and versatility.

Paul Wonnacott, Managing Director and President at Vectair Systems, said of the award win: “We are absolutely thrilled with the excitement that V-Air SOLID has brought to the cleaning industry, but we can’t say that we didn’t expect it.

“What makes it so unique is that it is so simple, yet so effective. Its green credentials – the fact it has no batteries and is powered solely by the air around us – means it is unlike other systems on the market, and aligns itself to corporate responsibility programmes. It contains no liquids which eliminates the chance of leaks. It can be placed in any location and is totally safe. We pride ourselves on customer feedback and are delighted that the judges recognise just how innovative this product is.”


WITH ACQUISITION Atalian, an international provider of facility services to companies in 21 countries, this month announced its expansion into the North American market with the acquisition of Temco Facility Services.

Based in Paris, Atalian is a family- owned company with more than 35,000 employees and an annual revenue of €1.33 billion (before acquisition). Its wide range of services allows customers to outsource most management of support functions, such as cleaning, multi-technical and facilities management, reception,

security, landscaping, construction and energy management.

New York-based Temco is a nearly century-old provider of cleaning and associated services to companies in the United States and, through its Temco-Euroclean subsidiaries, in the UK, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Founded in 1917, the company employs more than 10,000 people worldwide and operates in 12 states: Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas.

The acquisition is another step in Atalian’s international expansion programme, initiated in 2000 by Franck Julien, President of Atalian Holding Development and Strategy. It supports the company’s overall goal of growing its business by expanding its activities in France and in existing

countries, and by establishing itself in three new countries per year.

“Deploying Atalian’s multi-business expertise across an increasingly global network of countries and continents allows us to build our international revenue base and strengthens the sustainable growth of the company,” said Julien. “Temco and Euroclean add highly visible and valued customers to our growing global portfolio, and we welcome their very capable service teams.”

In addition to establishing its presence in the U.S. market, this acquisition makes Atalian one of the leading facility services companies in Belgium and Luxembourg.

Atalian’s customers include, among others, Airbus, Air France, Bosch, Carrefour, EDF, Electrolux, the Louvre museum, Metro, Orange, and Safran. Tomorrow’s Cleaning February 2016 | 21
