Astonishing win for cleaning brand

Yorkshire-based cleaning brand, Astonish, has secured the much coveted ‘Manufacturer of the Year Award (over £25m)’ at the Made in Yorkshire Awards 2021.

Astonish has been an industry stalwart for nearly 50 years and has had an impressive 12 months, increasing sales by 50% and being voted product of the year by the Great British public. The company also developed a unique anti- bacterial surface cleaner specifically designed for the NHS, and donated all profits back to the NHS. These fantastic achievements were highlighted by the judging panel and helped the brand secure the award.

The brand also holds the title of the only British-made Vegan and Cruelty Free certified household clean and personal care brand.

CEO of Astonish, Howard Moss, commented: “We were delighted to receive this award and proud that our dedicated team has been recognised for all of their hard work over the last challenging year. We are looking ahead to an exciting year for Astonish with the aim of expanding our product range, and growing our market share across the industry.”

( Bio-Productions MD joins the WCEC

Burgess Hill-based businesswoman, Angela Gill, has become a Freeman in the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaning this month, after taking an oath at a special ceremony in London.

Angela, Managing Director of Bio-Productions, took her oath recently after being nominated by one of her clients.

The initiation was due to take place in 2020 but was postponed until this year due to the COVID-19 crisis. The ceremony was also the Company’s first in-person event since March 2020, which added to the historic occasion.

Angela said: “I’m absolutely delighted and so proud to join the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaning. Our company is genuinely passionate about the environmental

and cleaning products that are environmentally sympathetic, so joining this prestigious organisation was really important for us. I’m excited to represent Bio-Productions to other freemen and liverymen as our business continues to grow.”
