CleanSafe Services (UK) Ltd has acquired the floor treatment arm of Bonasystems Europe, the UK’s leading manufacturer and provider of floor care chemical products – and is ready to invest £250,000 in developing the service.
The deal gives CleanSafe Services exclusive rights in the UK to apply Bonasystems Grip, the market-leading anti-slip treatment for tiles, stone, and other cementitious surfaces.
Bonasystems Grip reduces the risk of slips and trips in a variety of environments, including wet leisure and spa facilities, transport hubs, and retail centres. Blue chip customers that use product include Network Rail, Mitchells and Butlers, Sainsbury’s, and Hilton Worldwide.
CleanSafe Services will also provide a contract service for Bonasystems’ other industry-leading surface treatment products for cleaning, maintaining, and sealing floors.
Bonasystems Managing Director Steven Phillips said the deal is a perfect fit for both businesses, and for customers, and is a key element of their business growth strategy.
He added: “We wanted to work with a national product application partner that shared our belief in expertise, professionalism, and excellent customer service.
“By having CleanSafe Services working with us as our authorised application contractor, we can focus our energies on developing our innovative products, and marketing them to our growing number of end-use clients.
“It means customers will continue to enjoy the same, excellent, seamless service when they choose Bonasystems Grip to protect their workforce and customers, as well as their financial health, and brand reputation.
“New sentencing guidelines, introduced in 2016, have greatly increased potential fines for slip and trip accidents. This makes it more vital than ever before that businesses take action to reduce these risks.”
As one of the UK’s leading emergency and specialist cleaning companies, CleanSafe Services already sets the highest operational standards and is experienced in the use and application of sophisticated chemical products.
CleanSafe Services Managing Director Steve Broughton said it will invest £250,000 in developing and promoting its Bonasystems Grip application service over the next two years.
He added: “We see huge potential in widening the use of the product. We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with Bonasystems to deliver their range of highly-effective floor treatment products on behalf of customers.
“This acquisition represents a natural extension of our service offer, and will allow us to market Bonasystems products, like Bonasystems Grip, to our extensive customer base, adding significant value to their operations.”
Under the deal, Bonasystems’ product application team and its sales staff, have moved across to CleanSafe Services under TUPE arrangements.
Steve Broughton said: “Bonasystems Grip is the go-to product for supporting workforce and customer safety, demonstrating due diligence, and reducing the risk of incurring potentially huge costs, legal and administrative, associated with slip and trip incidents.
“Here at CleanSafe Services, we are looking forward to working with Bonasystems, and its growing customer base, to roll out the vital protection that Bonasystems Grip provides.”
