The complete solution

Robert Scott & Sons Limited are one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of industrial and domestic cleaning textiles and suppliers of one of Europe’s largest ranges of Janitorial cleaning supplies.

However, as Marketing Director Alastair Scott explains, it’s not just about the products: “Over the years we have realised that simply supplying a range of over 2000 products is often not enough and does not respond fully to the market’s requirements - this is where our recently introduced SWAT Team can now help, offering a professional and totally client dedicated service which will quickly and effectively respond to client queries

and training requirements.”

“The Robert Scott SWAT Team can be contacted either by phone or a speedy on-line service via our website. SWAT team members offer a national service with team members available for onsite visits to offer training and detailed product information and updates. All clients can now request a SWAT survey which will investigate any problems being experienced and review current cleaning practices to see where they can be improved. A written report detailing their findings is then submitted with suggestions for the best products to suit individual requirements and, where necessary, new cleaning regimes to produce the most cost effective and efficient way forward. The team will also provide bespoke training manuals either in hard copy or via our website.”

SitexOrbis has retained a £3 million contract to secure empty properties for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, the Province’s largest landlord. The four year contract joins eight others won in the public sector this year worth up to an additional £1 million for the property and people protection specialist.

The WOOLSAFE Organisation exhibited at this year’s Cleaning Show, underlining its commitment to further strengthening the WOOLSAFE brand

throughout the professional cleaning industry.

“The Cleaning Show is a fantastic way to promote our certification marks, and why it’s important to seek them out. It’s also great to be able to talk about our products and services to such a wide range of industry professionals,”

explains Steve Bakker, Promotions Manager. “Not only can we approach members of the industry who use cleaning chemicals on a daily basis, but also those who make decisions at senior management level, encouraging them to make sure that they choose and insist on WOOLSAFE.”

Throughout the course of the Cleaning Show The WOOLSAFE Organisation informed visitors on its wide range of services, providing guidance on the correct care of carpets and rugs and also liaised with chemical manufacturers to raise awareness of the WOOLSAFE Approved products scheme that now features over 300 professional and consumer carpet cleaning products.
