ECS enters strategic supply partnership

Total facilities management company, European Customer Synergy (ECS), has entered a strategic partnership with Diversey Care. The partnership will enable the European FM provider to continue to deliver high quality products and services to its clients, whilst also being able to offer more effective and environmentally friendly solutions.

Scott Newland, chief operating officer at ECS, said: “We are very pleased to have strategically partnered with Diversey Care following a long history of working together. Diversey Care prides itself on pioneering innovative solutions within the facilities management sector and that is what makes this partnership so beneficial for ECS and, most importantly, our clients. The partnership will further enable us to deliver industry leading services to our clients in a more sustainable and efficient way, through the use of best in class products and cutting-edge technology, alongside smarter ways of working.”

Diversey Care will not only work with ECS to maximise productivity and efficiencies on a European scale, but also on a local level, collaborating with ECS partners to tailor solutions depending on differing regional requirements. The strategic partnership will be particularly effective given the common goals of the two organisations. With sustainability central to the ethos of both companies, ECS will be able to assist its clients in achieving more environmentally friendly practices and processes in all aspects of their business operations. Diversey Care's ultra-concentrated cleaning products and intelligent dosing machines have been specifically designed to address this, helping to reduce packaging, transportation requirements, onsite storage space, and chemical wastage. Of the packaging that is required, 100% is recyclable.

In addition to environmental benefits and enhanced service delivery, ECS's clients will be given the opportunity to be at the forefront of trialling new Diversey Care technologies before they are released to the market. This will initially include involvement in the research and development of Diversey's range of 'Intellibot' floor care machines.
