£8,400 FOR RNIB Members and sponsors of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA), together with their guests, raised £8,400 at the Association’s Annual Gala Ball for the Chairman’s Charity, The Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB).

PRESTIGIOUS AWARD Pontefract-based Greyland distributor FX Supplies Ltd has been awarded the accolade of ‘No.1 SME Commercial Cleaning Company 2018’.

Now primarily an FM company, FX Supplies started in 2013 selling paper and janitorial products into schools and local businesses, before developing further and offering cleaning staff and caretakers.

Jason Dale, Managing Director of FX Supplies, said: “It’s great to be recognised for hard work.

we expect and achieve maximum quality as a competitive rate on all our contracts: it’s what sets us apart from the bigger operators.”

Jason added: “The award comes after a great amount of hard work and dedication from not only the directors, but also every member of staff at FX. Our attention to detail, and the hard work the staff put in, is complemented by the products we use.

“Greyland Chemicals has enabled us to have the confidence to approach all types of business, from warehouses to doctors’ surgeries, schools and colleges to name a few. The product range and value allows us to confidently tender for any potential contract, knowing we have the products and prices suitable for any requirement.

“As a recognised distributor we also actively market and sell Greyland, products to a wide range of businesses. Our relationship is supported by any technical support we may require, and customer care from

Greyland in our experience, is second to none. In part, we feel Greyland has helped us achieve this award, and we can’t thank them enough.”

People. A huge thank you to all our members and guests who contributed on the night and to our sponsors who made the whole event possible.”

The RNIB offers practical and emotional support to people who are losing their sight or are blind or partially sighted, helping them face the future with confidence.
