Janitorial supplies

When was the last time you reviewed your janitorial supplies?

A while ago, right?

That’s because with…

Janitorial Supplies – They’re Too Routine to Review

That’s the thing with Janitorial Supplies. Buying cleaning equipment is just like it’s built into the fabric of your business.

You’re buying the cleaning equipment month after month, perhaps on a minimum number of units covering everything from…

  • Detergents
  • Refuse sacks
  • Peddle bin liners
  • Washroom consumables
  • Soaps
  • Paper towels

You might even have PPE, and perhaps worker uniforms being cleaned as part of a larger contract.

It’s often the case that due to the frequency and the requirement for these essentials that the contracts aren’t looked at because they’re deemed essential to operations and not worth the risk of tinkering with suppliers as part of a cost reduction exercise.

It needn’t be the case as it is possible to work with the same suppliers but on better terms for you.

No supplier will ever approach you with an opportunity to cut your costs. You need to re-visit the table on occasion and get better terms. Or find a better deal elsewhere.

The one thing we do know is this…

Cleaning Products: The Concentration Con

Here’s something you may not know…

When you’re buying industrial cleaning products, you’re quoted for the size of the container rather than the strength of what’s inside. Yet concentration levels vary widely between products and between manufacturers, making it impossible to assess which is the cheapest product.

With our recommendations, you’ll always get like-for-like pricing, enabling you to compare cleaning products quickly and easily.

If you want to keep the same brands that you currently use for your janitorial supplies, we’ll provide quotes giving you savings without changing products.

Our carefully-selected janitorial suppliers provide Service Level Agreements giving a minimum 95% order fill rate, meeting British Standard specifications. You can be confident that you’ll get the cleaning supplies you order.

You can save big on Janitorial Supplies

It’s often the case that people have been ordering the same products from the same suppliers for years, spending little – if any – time reviewing and renegotiating the order.

Across a large business, janitorial supplies are likely to be a significant overhead. One that most certainly merits the application of sound procurement practices.

Liaising closely with our approved suppliers, we use our clients’ combined purchasing power to negotiate the best price on the full range of janitorial supplies.
