Healthguard Hygiene, based in Towcester, Northants, is changing its name to Bothongo Hygiene Solutions. The restructuring is in line with the need to consolidate the Bothongo Group’s growing global activities in the hygiene category. Bothongo Hygiene Solutions is a sister company to InnuScience, manufacturer of biotechnology cleaning products, and the same integrated UK sales team will be responsible for both companies.
Healthguard Hygiene CEO, Nick Winstone, remains at the helm of the rebranded company. He said: “In 2020, we responded to the urgent need for hygiene products to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and created Healthguard Hygiene out of the Bothongo group of companies. Being incredibly agile, with the help of our supply chain partners, we were able to supply predominantly frontline users in the UK with 10 million bottles of sanitiser.”
Having built up a solid base of customers and assessed new opportunities in the janitorial and hygiene space, it became clear that consolidation was needed across the Bothongo Group’s main markets in Europe, North America and Africa. To ensure consistent positioning, Healthguard Hygiene took the decision to rebrand in order to reinforce its association with the Bothongo Group, and renamed the business Bothongo Hygiene Solutions UK Ltd.
