Read all about it with Clean Sheet

Jangro_CleanSheet_issue1Hello there and welcome back. As Jangro is celebrating its 35th anniversary I thought it would be a perfect time to tell you all about our newsletter, Clean Sheet, which launched to mark our huge milestone.

A fresh approach

Here at Jangro HQ we wanted a new and exciting way to get our message out while keeping you all updated with out latest goings on and so our newsletter, Clean Sheet was created.

Jam packed with everything from product launches, top tips and interesting facts and figures to product reviews and even a handy ‘Ask the Experts’ section featuring myself, Clean Sheet is your go to newsletter for all the latest news and views from Jangro and the cleaning industry.

Hot topics

Clean Sheet has proven to be popular and is being distributed through two of the UK’s leading industry publications Cleaning Matters and Teach Primary.

Jangro_CleanSheet_SpreadIn the first issue we included the changes to the new hazard symbols, information on Jangro’s enviro range, an introduction to the hand washing heroes, the Jangronauts as well as an exciting giveaway.

Jangro’s free online resource, Site Manager, was the focus of the second issue as well as information on Jangro’s suite of supporting material for businesses while the third and current issue concentrates on washroom hygiene.

New ideas

Looking ahead to future issues of Clean Sheet, you may have a question you would like to see on the ‘Ask the Experts’ section or you might have a suggestion for a new feature. I’d love to hear what you think on my social media pages.

Hi and welcome back to my blog. Today I have some exciting news about a very special birthday here at Jangro.

We are celebrating our 35th anniversary by inviting our valued members and suppliers to the beautiful Balearic island of Ibiza for a very special annual conference.

Since our launch in 1980 Jangro has become a dynamic force in the cleaning industry with 42 members covering the UK and Ireland from Inverness in the Scottish Highlands to Cornwall on the South West Coast.

The annual conference, which is celebrated abroad every five years, will take place between Wednesday 9th and Sunday 13th September. Both members and suppliers will come together to share best practice and ideas to ensure Jangro continues to be a market leader providing quality products, innovation and unrivalled service throughout the group.

Words of wisdom

I took some time out to speak to Joanne Gilliard, Operations Director here at Jangro, and she said: “As we celebrate the past we are also looking forward to a prosperous future, with lots of exciting plans in the pipeline. This conference will bring together the industry’s finest to look at strategies to enable Jangro to continue to flourish.”

I also caught up with Phil Cullumbine, Director at Ace Janitorial, and he added: “Ace Janitorial is proud to be one of the founding members of Jangro and it has been fantastic to see the group go from strength to strength. The shared passion for quality and value amongst the members is the reason that Jangro has become what it is today and we will all continue to work together for the benefit of our customers.

“Of course, none of this would have been possible without the vision and commitment of our Honorary Life President Bryan Squires and we will certainly be raising a congratulatory glass to him in Ibiza.”

Know your numbers

There have been many investments and developments over the years, and these are becoming increasingly more frequent as Jangro continues to lead the way in the cleaning, catering and hygiene industry.


For those of you who aren’t familiar with Jangro, here’s some interesting background information.

Jangro is the UK’s largest network of janitorial supply companies. Formed in 1980, Jangro has 42 members providing products and services across England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man.

Jangro’s product portfolio covers a wide variety of categories including catering, chemicals, equipment and hardware, floor care, washroom hygiene, healthcare/clinical, machines, paper, workwear/PPE.

Jangro provides full technical specifications for its products alongside information provided by Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) and the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP).

Training for everyone

Jangro also offers customers an award winning integrated Learning Management Solution (LMS) to help customers ensure products are used correctly and safely.

There are currently 12 learning modules, available online and classroom based, which cover COSHH, Health and Safety, Colour Coding and Infection Control, Carpet Care, Kitchen Hygiene and Floor Care, Introduction to Equipment, Washroom Hygiene, Housekeeping and an Introduction to Cleaning.

Online resources

Jangro has also developed and launched a series of free online tools for customers. The first, Site Manager, will save customers time and money, while keeping them up to date with the latest health and safety documentation.

This health and safety compliance solution is available to all online customers and contains hundreds of Safety Data Sheets, COSHH risk assessments and process risk assessment documents.

Each time a new product is ordered online, the relevant compliance information such as Safety Data Sheets, Chemical Risk Assessment or Work Equipment Risk Assessment will automatically be added to the customer’s dedicated Site Manager area.

In addition to Site Manager, Jangro has also launched a free online budget managing service to help customers monitor and track spend. The easy-to-use software allows clients to gain full financial control of their account spending by allocating set budgets and allowing them to authorise and monitor expenditure.
