Toucan play - Regent first major contractor to adopt cleaning
Regent Cleaning is the first major UK contractor to adopt a
ground-breaking innovation in cleaning solutions development.
The Coventry-based contractor is standardising the use of Toucan-Eco
- a natural, cost effective and simple system for disinfection and
cleaning using a solution made from tap water, salt and a small
electrical input - across all of its operational sites.
Regent currently employs 4,500 operatives at over 1000 sites,
serviced via 10 regional offices. The company aims to have two
Toucan Eco units in use on every site.
Developed by UK company Centrego, the solution's added qualities of
non-toxicity and overall ecological soundness are expected to see
ready adoption of the solution in a diversity of environments.
Trials of Toucan Eco at select sites have been followed by full
staff training held by Regent Cleaning and Centrego.
Regent sees Toucan Eco as a perfect solution for cleaning most areas
and particularly hard surfaces using microfibre wiping and mopping
Inexpensive to purchase, store and transport, and easy-to-mix and
non-hazardous in application, it constitutes a revolution in
cleaning that brings benefits in safety, cost and environmental
sustainability, say the company.
Toucan Eco's infection control properties are expected to attract
particular interest, adds Regent Cleaning training & HR support
officer Mark Mahoney.
Regent Cleaning's adoption of the Toucan Eco system has been welcome
by Centrego. Says Centrego managing director Robin Turner:
"Regent's primary drive is to continually improve the service it
provides clients and to take real and meaningful steps to
implementing a 'green clean' footprint on all the sites it cleans.
"Regent treats both suppliers and clients equally as partners, doing
what they said they would do, when they said they would, without
fuss or delay. From our very first meeting it was apparent that the
company was not only professional but determined to put the concept
of customer service into practice."
Says Robin: "Regent's focus is on team working to ensure that staff
training, product distribution and internal promotional materials
are coordinated to ensure a seamless delivery to users."
A subsidiary of France's Groupe Samsic, Regent Cleaning provides a
wide range of standalone environmental care programs as well as an
integrated service offer with its partner, Regent Security.
