Gojo has so much that’s new to talk about, that it hired a separate room to tell us about it, rather than meet us on its stand 11.417. We were surrounded by bottles of cleverly formulated hand gels but our attention was drawn to the company’s new, technologically advanced dispensing systems.
The company’s Mike Sullivan (thanks for recognising me Mike despite the 16-year old photo that appears on Cleanzine each week!) told us that this ‘next generation’ of hand hygiene solutions has been created through a combination of hi-tech research and development, industry knowledge and customer feedback. The result is, he said, the most exciting new development to hit the industry for years, combining all the qualities Gojo is known for – health, hygiene, sustainability and luxury – with some unique added benefits.
The new dispensers are easy to service and built to last – with performance guaranteed – and, cleverly, they can be supplied with message boards that can deliver safety information, news or even advertising.
Both systems carry the Gojo Lifetime Performance Guarantee.
Not only do batteries come included in the LTX, Smart Electronics ensure that this touch free dispenser uses a minimal amount of energy per actuation, eliminating the need to change batteries during the life of the LTX in most installations.
Gojo is so confident in the ability of the LTX to offer continuous, long-term results that, in the unlikely event that the batteries do run out, it will happily provide a new dispenser, free of charge.
Great care has been taken to reduce the amount of material used in the manufacture of the dispensers. Batteries are pre-installed, meaning that packaging is further reduced, and they can’t be activated until the tag is removed, saving energy.
All Gojo and Purell refills are sanitary sealed and with the new ADX and LTX, recycling is also made easier thanks to the refill hosting a recyclable pump that can be easily removed once the refill is empty.
Gojo Controlled Collapse bottles are a patent-pending innovation, engineered to hold their shape while emptying. The bottles remain flat to the surface of the large sight windows at the front of the units, making it easy to monitor soap levels at a glance but in a more attractive way.
Gojo Smart Flex bottles are made from durable, recyclable PET materials that provide crystal clear clarity while using 30% less material than rigid HDPE versions.
New formulations provide a treat for the senses, bringing a new world of colour and fragrance to the washroom, with Ecolabel certification already secured. The company is, however, planning for Purell to be the first product to persue the new UL standard which encourages manufacturers to use plant-based formulations rather than synthetics.
Enriched with moisturisers, natural extracts and skin conditioners, the soaps are a pleasure to use thanks to their luxurious textures and inspiring aromas including Lemonberry, Forestberry and Freshberry. Fragrance and dye-free options are also available, together with an Antibacterial Foam Soap.
Gojo’s European Marketing Manager, Suzanne De Maine, said: “Gojo has spent several years developing these products, consulting with its customers and users every step of the way, to ensure that we deliver all that the market wants. We are delighted with the results, which truly set a higher standard in effective hand hygiene solutions.”
