Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards 2020 launched: new sponsors announced
The Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Services Awards 2020 has been launched, with new headline sponsor the Cleaning & Hygiene Supplier's Association announced.
These are the premier awards recognising excellence in the facilities management and contract cleaning sectors and will take place on 4th March 2020 at the Hilton on Park Lane, London.
Founded in 1991, the Awards have become one of the industry's most esteemed events, providing the opportunity for both contract cleaners and in-house teams to showcase and be recognised for innovation and to set the benchmark for high standards of service.
Kimberly-Clark Professional is delighted to announce six new sponsors, led by gold sponsor CHSA. Stephen Harrison, CHSA Chairman and managing director of Harrison Wipes says:
"With a reputation across the industry for celebrating the excellence of cleaning operatives and teams, the Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards is an important cross-industry event."
The CHSA has a long-standing commitment to maintaining standards in the industry and represents the major manufacturers and distributors of cleaning and hygiene products in the UK 'away from home' market.
"Our members supply the contract cleaners and in-house cleaning teams whose professionalism will be celebrated at the Awards," adds Stephen. "Sponsoring gives us the chance to shine a light on our commitment to standards brought to life through our Accreditation Schemes, each of which is underpinned by a rigorous process of independent inspection. Our Standards, Your Guarantee."
Joining the Awards as new silver sponsors are Kärcher and Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies. New bronze sponsors include Truvox International and InnuScience. Returning as a bronze sponsor is the British Cleaning Council - which is once again category sponsor for the Site Supervisor of the Year Award.
In recognition of the changing industry landscape and to support entrepreneurial drive, Kimberly-Clark Professional has added two new categories: Best Innovation and Best Small Business. All 16 categories of the Awards will open for entries on 20th May 2019.
The new sponsors have also agreed to support specific awards with category sponsorship. The CHSA is sponsoring the Hospitality Award, with Kärcher and Bunzl selecting the Manufacturing Award and Cleaning Operative of the Year Award respectively. InnuScience is supporting the new Best Innovation Award with Truvox announced as sponsor of the Shopping Mall with more than one shop or department category.
"It is my great pleasure to announce the launch of the Kimberly-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards 2020, most importantly to welcome our new sponsors including our gold sponsor the CHSA," says Stephen Jones, Kimberly-Clark Professional's general manager (UK and Ireland). "These awards acknowledge the very best in our industry and reflect our vision to create exceptional workplaces through raising industry standards. Thank you to all our sponsors for their support, and good luck to all future entrants. We look forward to hearing about all your innovations and achievements."
