Leaders From the Cleaning Industry Come Together to Celebrate Cleaning Standards! - Education, Membership and training within the cleaning industry | BICSc

The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) have received overwhelming support from the cleaning industry for this year’s BICSc Annual Awards celebrations.

We asked our sponsors what their views on The BICSc Annual Awards are and why it is so important to the cleaning industry.

Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies

“Once again I am delighted on behalf of Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies to sponsor the British Institute of Cleaning Science Annual Awards Dinner. The Awards are an important opportunity to publicly recognise and celebrate the achievements of both individuals and organisations, which have made an outstanding contribution to the cleaning industry here in the UK.

These awards are unique, in that those who coordinate the awards, and the nominees themselves are representative of a broad cross-section of cleaning operatives, training & cleaning organisations from the public and private sectors.

I look forward to what will no doubt be another successful evening, that will once more showcase the best that our industry has to offer!”

Mike Kenny - Managing Director – Bunzl CHS

Rubbermaid Commercial Products 

“On behalf of Rubbermaid Commercial products we are delighted to be sponsoring the outstanding student of the year award for the very first time, and being part of the overall of celebrations throughout the evening.

For us, it is great to be part of an awards ceremony that is celebrating the very best within the cleaning industry.

We have chosen to sponsor the student of the year award – this for us was a great opportunity to pass on our appreciation to somebody that has gone that extra mile and achieved their qualifications even when faced with challenging circumstances and adversity. 

On behalf of everyone at Rubbermaid Commercial Products, we can’t wait to be part of what we are sure will be a fantastic evening!!”

Paul Kelly – Commercial Director - RCP UKI 

Darwin Clayton

“We have been working closely with the British Institute of Cleaning Science for a number of years and I am delighted to confirm Darwin Clayton’s continued sponsorship of the Annual Awards Dinner.

Recognising hard work and the successful results this can deliver, is important in continuing to help motivate and drive standards forward in the UK Cleaning sector. 

The BICSc Annual Awards recognise outstanding service, commitment, quality and education that will help deliver a sustainable industry for the future.

I am look forward to another fantastic BICSc Annual  Awards evening.”

Ashley Hoadley – Director - Darwin Clayton


“Vileda Professional have worked closely with BICSc for many years. We are extremely happy to be associated with the Doreen Hayes Award for Excellence in Training within the Healthcare Sector.

BICSc’ dedication and hard work to implementing standards within hospitals, clinics and surgeries is invaluable in improving the quality of Healthcare Provision." 

Andrew Tuft – Commercial Director - FHP LP 


“ISSA is proud to be involved with BICSc and to jointly sponsor the CIMS Commitment to Excellence Award with BBS. Our commitment to help in changing the way the worldviews cleaning is greatly enhanced by the work which BICSc undertakes in ensuring that standards of cleanliness are part of its portfolio to train and certificate Cleaning Operatives in our industry. The BICSc Awards Ceremony is now an integral part of our calendar and we are delighted to be part of this Event”. 

Keith Baker – Director of EMEA Services – ISSA


“PWC & ISS were very proud to receive the 2013 BICSc Client Commitment to Training award. This is presented to BICSc clients that exhibit high levels of support for their contractors, therefore helping them to achieve excellence in training. PwC and ISS received the accolade for working in partnership to provide an accredited Cleaning Professionals Skills Suite (CPSS) training centre at PwC’s office at More London.

The establishment of the ISS/ PwC training centre has provided structured and nationally accredited training to all members of the ISS cleaning team. This has made a real difference to the role the operatives carry out, helping them to realise just how important they are to the customer’s service delivery. As such we are very proud to join together and support BICSc by sponsoring this award in recognising this year’s winning organisation’s role in providing total support within their own team.”

David Martin - National Account Manager - ISS Facility Services 

Metsa Tissue

“Although we’ve attended many times, this is the first time Mesa Tissue has sponsored the BICSc Annual Awards Dinner with Katrina brand. This sponsorship reflects our belief in the importance of recognising the industry as a whole, and also highlights the significant part that training plays in enhancing performance and part that timing plays in enhancing performance and adding tremendous value to the way the industry is viewed. We are especially pleased to be taking the Cocktail Sponsorship – which we hope will add a little Katrin colour and fun to the start of the event.”

Mark Dewick, sales Director for Metsa Tissue UK & Ireland 

Other Sponsors of the event include LCC Support Services, Asephtech Contamination Control Systems, Push, Lansdale, BBS (BICS Business Services), and Premiere Products.

BICSc would like to thank all the organisations for their support of the Annual Awards Dinner, as without our sponsors, this occasion could not take place. We hope you had an enjoyable evening of celebrations!
