Right now, there’s a surging demand for electric hand dryers.

What we know about facility managers (and how we work with them).

We’ve been working closely with facility managers since the day we launched back in 2012, and one thing has always been clear – when it comes to hand dryers and washroom accessories, the people responsible for keeping a building running like a well-oiled machine want products for life, with free repairs, lifetime guarantees, reliability, and durability.

With gloomy weather, post-holiday blues, and seasonal illnesses in the mix, it’s hardly surprising – yet, prior to the pandemic, sickness-related absences were costing UK businesses £77.5 billion per year.  Employers might not be able to do anything about the weather and time of year, but seasonal illness is one area where they...
