esp at ISSA Interclean 2016

ISSA Interclean brings you to the heart of the professional cleaning industry and last week we were one of over 800 exhibitors at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam for the latest show. We unveiled our brand new range of dispensers, Origin and the complimentary range of luxury stainless steel dispensers on a double deck stand in Hall 11. From Tuesday 10th May to Friday 13th May, the esp stand team welcomed a range of visitors from existing customers and suppliers to a number of new contacts and clients.

ESP Interclean 2016

The new Origin dispensers from esp are an all-encompassing range covering options from toilet tissue and hand towel units to matching air freshener and bulk fill soap dispensers. Origin is the first of its kind to include economically priced system dispensers within an entry level washroom range. Made from white ABS plastic, these contemporary dispensers are smart enough for everyday washrooms and strong enough for busy commercial facilities, including schools, factories and offices.

The Origin range is produced with no branding to allow for easy personalisation with screen printing options available on orders above 100 dispensers.

More Toilet Rolls Re-invented

Over the last few weeks, we have discovered how some very talented artists can turn empty toilet rolls into wonderful pieces of art. Today, we are sharing the work of Japanese artist Yuken Teruya.

Yuken cuts trees out of paper bays and cardboard toilet rolls. The most fantastic thing is that in each roll, the shape of a tree is created without adding or removing anything, just by cutting out and folding the paper from the roll itself.

Take a look at some of the beautiful designs below:Toilet-Roll-Craft-01 Toilet-Roll-Craft-02 Toilet-Roll-Craft-03

Amazing Toilet Roll Creations

Have you ever wondered what could possibly be done with that empty toilet roll? French artist, Junior Fritz Jacquet has revealed his unique way of turning what most people think of as rubbish into an interesting collection of art.

These origami inspired masks are created from a single toilet paper roll which are folded and bent into expressive faces. They are then coated in shellac and different pigments to create the final piece.

Take a look at some of the masks in his collection….. Masks 1  Masks 3 Masks 2

Toilet Roll Art

At ESP we are always amazed by what people can create from toilet tissue or rolls. Today we have discovered the work of Parisian artist Anastassia Ellias.

Anastassia creates dioramas by cutting out tiny scenes from paper and installing them inside the toilet roll – “One day I looked at an empty roll and wondered if I could do something with it”. Take a look at some of her creations here:

2014 looks to be a first class year for esp. With a 25th celebration on the horizon, growth plans have been set out and are well and truly underway.

As a company focussed on continuous improvement, esp have taken the next step in their development journey and are now proudly certified to ISO 9001:2008 Quality and ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standards. By design, each standard ensures the esp customer remains the driving force behind the company, with the spotlight on not only meeting, but exceeding, expectations of service, quality and environmental awareness. One of their long term distributors told us what the company’s ISO certification means to them:

“Pearroc Ltd are very pleased that esp are part of the ISO certification. This ensures quality is consistent, as it has always been, and gives my customers piece of mind that all checks are in place. This will help us moving forwards with contractual or regulatory requirements on tenders”.

By committing to ISO Quality Services and the objectives laid out in both standards, the whole esp team, both management and staff, accept their individual responsibilities for ensuring the systems are followed and understood, in order to aid the continuing development and growth of the company.

With ISO certification under their belts, plans for the company’s new site in Blackmore Park, Malvern are forging ahead with pre planning application to build over 150,000 square feet of factory, warehouse and offices within the 19 acre site. Blackmore Park will consolidate all operations to enable the company to continue servicing their current markets whilst also allowing for future development and expansion into new markets. Investment is already planned for two brand new production lines and development will definitely not stop there, with the overall desire to create a world class converting plant. esp plan to make the offices a fun and vibrant place to work as well as being a great facility for customers and suppliers alike to visit.

In line with the move to Blackmore Park, which will be complete by the end of 2015, esp have launched accelerated growth plans and throughout the start of this financial year they have seen unprecedented sales figures in double digits. Martin Kent, Sales Director for esp, is delighted with the progress and is confident his team of sales animals will make it a record breaking year for the company.

“Whilst we are seeing unprecedented growth as a result of a healthy pipeline, we are also really excited about our ISO qualifications. The reality of ISO for esp is that certification not only gives our existing customers assurance of quality but it also opens doors to us that were previously closed. esp will always push the boundaries of our business and we are experiencing very exciting times as a company. The next three years promise to be exhilarating for both staff and customers alike, with new products, new premises and new targets; it is certainly full steam ahead with the esp train!!”

Ahead of their 25th Anniversary year in 2015, esp have commissioned six brand new trailers with their freight partners White Logistics. The launch of these personalised lorries will mean you will be seeing a whole lot more of esp throughout the UK with the esp train now shipping pallets of paper disposables to their growing network of distributors across the country. As a sign of recognition to their committed team, each trailer bears the name of the longest standing members of esp staff – Paul “Sten”, Arron, Keith “Dobby”, Chris “Cropper”, Dave and Lee. Each lorry also has an individual “serial” number, which is the date each staff member started their employment with esp. With all six now out on the road, a social media campaign has been launched to encourage a bit of (esp) train spotting, with the first person to capture a “selfie” with each trailer being set to receive a great prize. Follow @espenigma on Twitter for more information on how you can get involved.

With so much going on at esp, it’s easy to see why they are setting themselves apart within the paper disposables industry and they are showing no signs of slowing down. The next six months look set to see a number of milestones reached by the company. With their longstanding and established Enigma Brand, flexibility to provide a comprehensive private label package, a refreshing approach to market with a team that is both professional and personable, it’s clear to see esp truly has “a great deal of difference”.
