Olympic legacy lingers on for Bay West
Disposables UK, a leading supplier of washroom dispensing products to the away from home market, scooped a major win at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, when its Bay West range was chosen for venues within the Olympic Park.
In all, some 16,000 Bay West dispensers were installed within the Olympic Park, and across the duration of the Games 7,500 cases of product, including toilet tissue, soap and hand towels, were delivered; 220,000 toilet rolls were used in Bay West dispensers and 10,000 cartridges of soap were provided. Products were installed by a dedicated fitting team over the period August 2011 to June 2012.
Working in partnership, Disposables UK and one of its UK-based independent distributors, took part in a highly competitive tender process conducted by LOCOG (the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games). As a result of the strong impression they made, Bay West washroom dispensing products were selected for use in the Velodrome and Basketball stadium. The remit was then further extended to cover the supply of product to the main stadiums and press areas.
A key factor in LOCOG's selection of Disposables UK was its impeccable green credentials - the company is the first paper converter in the UK away-from-home market to be awarded EU recognised certification and to carry Ecolabel accreditation - combined with its cost savings over some other washroom alternatives, and reduction in wastage and high capacity.
Such is the reliability of the products that, throughout the duration of the Games, the thousands of people using the washroom facilities always had access to toilet tissue, paper towels and soap.
"We are immensely proud to have had this 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to provide our Bay West products to the 2012 Olympics," Emma Wood, Marketing Manager, Disposables UK, comments. "It is a massive accolade for the Bay West brand and we are thrilled to be able to say that we were a supplier to the Olympic and Paralympic Games."
Bay West is manufactured under licence by Disposables UK in Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East.
Bay West offers a range of dispensing products for every workplace environment. Whatever the surroundings, Bay West dispensers withstand the harshest of demands across both high traffic and high usage areas.
