Decitex intelligent textiles of France joins UK's NHS Supply Chain
Decitex of France, which specialises in the development of intelligent and innovative textiles for use in professional cleaning, has announced a new contract with the National Health Service Supply Chain. Following numerous introductions and tests in some of the largest NHS hospitals across Britain, it was Decitex's precise knowledge of this market that helped the company secure the contract.
A total of 26 Decitex products will be listed by the NHS Supply Chain, including single- as well as short-and-long-term usage solutions adapted to hazardous areas, such as operating theatres and isolation rooms.
Decitex's textiles have proven efficiency and its single- and short-usage cloths have been approved in accordance with the EN13697 standard. These products allow all hospitals, including state-of-the-art ones, to choose to clean floors with water, whilst ensuring the demands of ATP tests are met.
The company's main aim is to improve the quality of cleaning and ergonomics whilst considering the associated constraints and working on the reduction in usage costs of the products. Its textile engineers are encouraged to think about the efficiency of the textile for cleaning purposes before considering the addition of a chemical component. The material has also been developed to improve user comfort, not just in terms of autonomy and hygiene, but also in terms of design - a notion often overlooked in this field.
From their design and manufacture in France up to their final use in situ, Decitex products offer unique and innovative sustainable-development solutions in the field of cleaning textiles. In effect, using Decitex products makes it possible to save considerable amounts of water, chemicals and energy used in laundry. The specialist company also offers to recycle its products at the end of their use!
Decitex was founded in July 2000 by Guillaume Leymonerie, CEO of the 3E Concept Group. The company's products are now sold in countries around the world including Australia, Canada, France, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates and the UK. Decitex products, so as to better meet the needs of today's users, are manufactured to the highest standards. Over six million units of products are sold each year to the pharmaceutical and aerospace industries, as well as to numerous operating theatres within hospitals, in many countries.
As a manufacturer, Decitex's role is to design and produce high-performance textiles - i.e. mops and wipes made from microfibre - that are easy to use. Decitex listens to what its customers have to say and innovates as per their needs.
The company complements its textile-technology expertise (focused on issues such as cleaning time, ease of use, cost per use, and impact on the environment) with a lightweight, ergonomically designed range of handles and frames.
