Lyreco launches new chemical-free cleaning range
One of the UK's leading providers of workplace supplies has launched a new range of chemical free cleaning products in its ongoing drive to offer more sustainable and environmentally-friendly solutions to its customers.
Lyreco has developed Bioforce, chemical-free cleaning that harnesses the power of nature by using biotechnology to safely remove dirt, grease and grime from all surfaces, in partnership with InnuScience.
The versatile range includes a multi-surface cleaner, a descaler, a floor cleaning degreaser, a fabric and carpet cleaner, a food safe kitchen cleaner and a general kitchen cleaner degreaser.
Bioforce is available to order online for next day delivery through Lyreco's 2017 Hygiene Catalogue, which features more than 1,200 products including brands such as Tork, Kimberly Clark, Deb and Vileda.
InnuScience, a global leader in the production of biological cleaning products, developed the products exclusively for Lyreco.
The new range underpins Lyreco's long-term strategy to increase its market share of the cleaning and hygiene sector. It has already recorded a 25% year-on-year increase in sales during 2017 and is expanding its dedicated hygiene and cleaning sales team to support the growth.
"For many years the 'away from home' cleaning market has relied primarily on chemicals," notes Gareth Walton, Lyreco's director of business development - hygiene. "Innovation in this area has been relatively slow paced with the emphasis generally being on driving down the cost to the customer rather than the cost to our planet.
"At Lyreco we believed there was a better, more effective, and safer way of cleaning, and we are proud to be working in partnership with InnuScience to bring Bioforce to our customers.
"The addition of the range demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and the world around us as well as offering our customers a value for money and effective cleaning solution."
Steve Teasdale, group managing director & co-founder of InnuScience, comments: "We believe that biotechnology is the smartest way to solve everyday cleaning problems and create a more sustainable planet.
"It has been a pleasure collaborating with Lyreco in the development of the Bioforce range, which shows Lyreco's commitment to innovation and the environment. We founded InnuScience 25 years ago to reduce the use of hazardous cleaning products and provide future generations with a cleaner planet, it's only through real commitment by responsible global partners such as Lyreco that this can be achieved."
Lyreco's multiple category approach means that customers can use Lyreco as its one stop business solution for its cleaning and hygiene products, personal protective equipment, catering, general office products and electronic office supplies.
Lyreco is an international workplace supplies provider with 9,000 employees working in 45 countries across five continents. With 370,000sq.m of distribution centres globally, its network of 1,700 vans delivers more than 230,000 packages every day.
