INCLEAN Excellence Awards winners revealed

Winners named at the ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo.

The winners of this year’s INCLEAN Excellence Awards have been announced at the ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo.

The Excellence Awards seek to distinguish and showcase innovative and progressive products and services within the cleaning industry.

Held alongside this year’s ISSA Cleaning & Hygiene Expo in Sydney, the awards encourage the achievements of those demonstrating quality and excellence within their respective markets while clearly defining application benefits for end-users.

The award’s received a record number of nominations, with entries narrowed down to three finalists across six categories: equipment (small), equipment (large), paper and dispensing, cleaning agents, services and technology, and janitorial.

This year’s judging panel included Geoffrey Thorpe, Steve Kulper, and Claire Hibbit.

“We are proud to present and host the INCLEAN Excellence Awards and recognise the industry’s ingenuity and innovation over the past two years,” said Lauren Micallef, ISSA Oceania manager.

“The past 24 months have been challenging for the industry, but it hasn’t been a deterrent for the industry to innovate, and this has been evident by the quality of winners and finalists.

“Congratulations to the 2022 winners and well done to all the finalists.”
