WASHROOM SERVICE Elis, a supplier and launder of workwear, linen and mats for businesses of all sizes throughout the UK, has launched a new washroom service, supplying a range of products including hand cleansing, hand drying, air freshening and feminine hygiene solutions.

The new washroom products, like all Elis services, are provided on a cost effective rental basis, with items serviced and delivered to an agreed time and location to suit customers. The washroom solution, along with Elis’ mats service, that helps keep floors fresh and clean, and its workwear and linen supply and laundry, mean that businesses can use one supplier to manage, service and launder essential items for their business.

Elis developed its new washroom service after providing washroom products via a third party for over 20 years. Anna Freeman of

Businesses and organisations operating throughout the cleaning industry are invited to enter their innovative products, services and initiatives. A ‘Dragon’s Den’ panel of industry experts and representatives will review and interview the entrants and select those to be exhibited at the Innovation Showcase itself, taking place on Thursday 19th March 2020.

Our nationwide washroom service has a fresh new and durable product range and strong environmental credentials.”
