Subsequently Harrison Wipes decided to expand the business by implementing a nightshift team, which also involved a reorganisation of the production facility and a further investment in converting equipment.

Granted Ecolabel mark for Sanitex MVP foam soap

Vectair Systems, a leading innovator in hygiene that supplies to more than 100 countries, has been awarded the Ecolabel mark for its Sanitex® MVP Foam Soap refill.

Established in 1992 by the European Commission, the EU Ecolabel helps consumers identify products and services that have a reduced environmental impact and that are of good quality.  To qualify for the EU Ecolabel, products have to comply with a tough set of criteria. These environmental criteria, set by a panel of experts from a number of independent stakeholders, including consumer organisations and industry, take the whole product life cycle into account - from the extraction of the raw materials, to production, packaging and transport, right through to its use and then the recycling bin.

Sanitex® MVP Foam Soap is a foaming lotion soap that is highly effective at cleaning hands, yet is extremely mild and gentle to the skin. 

Chicopee to showcase microfibre range at Pulire

Chicopee will showcase its innovative range of microfibre products at this year’s Pulire exhibition in Verona, from May 23-25.  Visitors to the Chicopee stand, at C10-11, will be able to see for themselves the high-quality range of cleaning wipes, cloths and mops, which are suitable for a range of sectors, from healthcare to catering.
Microfibre technology traps dirt, dust and bacteria, then the wipe is discarded after use, eliminating the danger of spreading germs onto the next surface to be cleaned.
Shaun Chatterton Named vice president of the CHSA
