Finalists announced for ECH Awards 2019

The finalists of the European Cleaning & Hygiene Awards 2019 have been revealed, following a record year that sees 23 service providers, manufacturers and distributors shortlisted across nine categories.

Launched by the European Cleaning Journal and organised by the Environment Media Group, the awards recognise standards of excellence in the professional cleaning industry and are the only pan-European awards for the sector. The winners of this, the fourth will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony and gala dinner, which will take place on 17 October at The Church House, London.

European Cleaning Journal Editor and judging panel member, Michelle Marshall, said: “We’ve had some outstanding entries this year, and with over 130 nominations received, the judges certainly had their work cut out when it came to narrowing down to a shortlist.

“All our entrants should be incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication that they have demonstrated towards the professional cleaning sector but there can only be ten winners on the night. We feel our shortlist shines a spotlight on some of the most innovative, disruptive companies in the industry and we wish them the best of luck for the 17 October.”
