Wiltshire-based Green Hills Cleaning Ltd has won Nilfisk’s ‘cleaning cupboard’ of equipment worth £5000. The cleaning equipment haul is all battery operated, comprising the VP600 tub vacuum, the GD5 battery backpack, the SC250 micro scrubber, and the larger pedestrian scrubber dryer, SC400.
The winning company owner, Les Bedford, said: “My Wife and I founded Green Hills in 2010. Primarily a domestic services provider, we always intended to take the business into the commercial sector, but the cost of the equipment held us back. This win could not have come at a better time, it really allows us to take the business to the next level with quality, hardwearing machinery that is really fit for purpose. It was quite ironic really because we had entered the competition online after seeing it promoted on Facebook. We then visited the Cleaning Show in March dreaming about what we would like to buy. We even went ‘window shopping’ on the Nilfisk stand not thinking for one minute we would be lucky enough to win. Owning battery operated, cordless equipment that will improve productivity and safety has been a long-term aim of ours. To be able to do this now with a quality brand like Nilfisk really is a dream come true. The Nilfisk team were also excellent throughout - Stuart Costigan presented us with the equipment and showed us how to operate it for best results. A huge thank you to Nilfisk for such a professional initiative.”
