Axis Clean Up At The Loo Of The Year Awards

Axis Cleaning and Support Services, the nationwide supplier of commercial cleaning services, has scooped an armful of both gold and platinum awards in the 26th annual Loo of the Year Awards, dubbed the ‘Toilet Oscars’.

In the Awards, which judge the very best washrooms in the UK, no fewer than five of Axis Cleaning and Support Service’s customer sites were recognised with gold and platinum awards. The company entered into the retail, shopping centre, local authority

public toilets, museums and galleries, as well as both commercial and public office categories.

Platinum winners included the New Square Shopping Centre in West Bromwich, and the Wellington Town Council in Telford. The Gold winners were Manchester’s Squire Sanders, RAF Museum Cosford and Llandudno Town Council, with Axis employees Tina Shuttleworth, Kirsty Shuttleworth, Linda Richmond and Gwilym Hughes all winning ‘Attendant of the Year‘ awards.

Howard Perkins, the Town Clerk from Wellington Town Council, said the Axis employees have made a real difference to the Wellington Town Parade Toilet Block. He commented: “The toilets are of a very high quality as a result of the hard working members of staff.”

Two of Axis’ customer sites, the Victoria Shopping Centre in Southend on Sea and Harlow’s Harvey Shopping Centre, entered themselves into the Loo of the Year Awards independently, and were both awarded with platinum awards. Axis was also shortlisted in the 2013 Golden Service Awards, in the ‘Healthcare Establishment with fewer than 250 beds’ category, where Axis

was recognised for its work at Moor Park Health Centre in Blackpool. Despite not winning, making the short-list demonstrates the emphasis that Axis places on customer service.

The short-listing was as a result of a site visit to Moor Park where the efforts of Sue Mellor, Axis’ Moorpark PCT supervisor, who was also shortlisted for the ‘Site Supervisor of the Year’ Award, were shown to be exceptional. Sue is responsible for the service delivery on the site and communicates daily with the local FM team to ensure issues are responded to promptly. The result has been the regular audit score of 95%, marked as ‘excellent’ by the external NHS auditor.

Stuart Buswell, Managing Director of Axis is delighted with the recognition the company has received, and said: “We had a great 2013 and our success is a result of our hard- working employees. I am looking forward to building on this success in 2014 and beyond.”
