NZ Cleaning Supplies eyes new categories

NZ Cleaning Supplies to add new categories and as many as 60 new lines to product range.

NZ Cleaning Supplies is preparing to add new categories and as many as 60 new lines to its product range, including industrial scrubbers, sweepers and eco-friendly packaging.

NZ Cleaning Supplies launched a limited range of industrial sweeper and scrubbers three months ago but will introduce between 10 and 15 new lines from February 2019. Also expected to be launched next year is its new compositable and bio-degradable packaging which will include between 50 and 60 lines.

Ebin Sebastian, general manager of NZ Cleaning Supplies, said the business’ category expansion has been driven by an influx of cleaning contractors moving specialty services such as window cleaning and general maintenance services in-house.

“We’re getting a lot of demand from existing contactors. They’re expanding their businesses, so we have to expand with them,” Sebastian said.

NZ Cleaning Supplies also plans to extend its range of protective clothing and safety equipment following its partnership with Australia-based ProSafety Gear.

“We have been working with Prosafety Gear for the past year, but now we’re planning to offer the whole range of safety gear in New Zealand.”

The Auckland-based company has also expanded its management team, hiring two new account managers and a training manager.

New appointments include Alison Anthony as account manager, Neil Beasly as the company’s Wellington-based senior account manager and Luke Hurn as training manager.
