Improving cleaning efficiency for Unilever

Tork EasyCube has helped global consumer goods company Unilever to improve cleaning efficiency at its Hamburg headquarters.

The multinational has cut the number of daily cleaning rounds at its offices by 25% since installing Tork EasyCube. The company’s nine-storey Hamburg office building has received awards for sustainability and innovative design. But maintaining high standards of cleaning is a daily challenge in such a busy office where the washrooms are used by up to 5000 people on an average weekday. However, since installing more than 260 connected Tork EasyCube devices throughout its offices, Unilever has managed to cut the number of cleaning rounds from 90 to 68 per day. And the company reports that its cleaners are less stressed now they have the assurance that soap, towel and toilet paper supplies will be available 100% of the time.

Sodexo holds the contract to clean the 38,000 sq m Unilever building. “As a leading facility management company we are always looking for innovations that optimise our services and increase our clients’ quality of life,” said head of cleaning and infrastructure at Sodexo, Marc Mrotzek. “Tork EasyCube has enabled us to both improve customer satisfaction levels and increase our efficiency.”

Rainer Ringler from Unilever’s workplace services said: “Our top priority is to ensure that our facilities meet the highest standards for our employees. With Tork EasyCube we have achieved this goal and met other efficiency targets. Our expectations have definitely been exceeded.”
