Celebrating 100 successful years

Leyland based Lixall Hygiene Services is celebrating 100 years of successful business, marking the event with a number of customer promotions and commemorative events.

Formed in 1911, Lixall Hygiene Services, originally called The Sweepodust Company, was a manufacturing company producing a product called Sweepodust which was a mixture of sand, sawdust and disinfectant which was sold mainly to factories as a cleaning product which was scattered on the floor prior to sweeping.

Although many changes have taken place over the last 100 years, Lixall has stayed true to its core business offering of specialist cleaning services and products and never moved far away from its current Leyland home. To help commemorate this milestone, Lixall has launched a brand new e- commerce website - - to ensure the company is still a leading janitorial supply company in another 100 years time.

Lee Bailey of Lixall Hygiene Services said: "We are so proud of our history and to have survived and prospered for 100 years through so many economic changes shows the resilience of the company and the quality of the people behind it. We hope the forward thinking and dynamic business approach of the current team will ensure Lixall is around to celebrate 200 years of history in 2111."
