In order to support its clients Pickwick is acutely conscious of the need to keep up-to-date with the latest innovations and technologies in the cleaning industry. INTERCLEAN is recognised as one of the premier events worldwide for this purpose. This years’ event was held in May in Amsterdam with over 900 companies exhibiting the very latest products and equipment, INTERCLEAN 2018.
This year Pickwick sent a small delegation to report back on the event to management. CEO Ken Holder commented that he found it extremely worthwhile and was committed to having senior line and operations management attending such international trade shows annually given the increasing pace of change. “Innovative technology is impacting the cleaning industry as much as any other sector and it’s important we remain at the forefront to better service our client’s many needs” he says. Whilst there was considerable focus on automation and robotics Ken said there are many other areas where innovative products were leading to improvements in cleaning effectiveness along with enhancing OHS and the welfare of cleaning staff. Chemical free and biodegradable / compostable technologies along with and ergonomically designed cleaning equipment are just a few.
