Every day around the world, Ecolab associates are working to provide solutions that help protect what is vital: clean water, safe food, abundant energy and healthy environments. Here’s a look at some of our recent accomplishments:
WIN IN NIGERIA BOLSTERS PARTNERSHIP
The Energy Services Nigeria team finalized a new contract with a major oil and gas customer. The contract includes the supply of chemicals and services to help promote productivity and efficiency at the customer’s offshore floating production storage and offloading platform. The agreement further solidifies Energy Services’ global partnership with the customer and strengthens its brand and market share in the region.
A MAJOR WIN IN MALAYSIA
Regional Laundry, the largest commercial laundry group in Malaysia, washes textiles and garments for hotel chains across the country. Using a competitor’s solution, the company’s two largest laundries began experiencing greying textiles, excessive water and energy consumption, and a high rate of rewash. That’s when our Textile Care team convinced the laundry group to test our 60C delicate wash program. In just seven days, the team was able to show positive results — a better quality wash and reduced water and energy use — plus enhanced expertise and service protocols. Today, Ecolab is Regional Laundry’s sole supplier of textile care solutions. And as a result, guests at hotels in Malaysia are enjoying cleaner and softer linens that have been laundered more sustainably.
A “BLOOMIN” SUCCESS
Global Institutional secured a major win with Bloomin’ Brands Inc., which owns and franchises more than 1,400 restaurants in 16 countries, including brands such as Outback Steakhouse, Bone Fish Grill and Carrabba’s Italian Grill. Bloomin’ relies on Ecolab for innovative solutions and food safety protection globally at corporate and franchised locations. Demonstrating a focus on brand protection, integrated food safety offerings and innovation, the Global Institutional team, along with representatives from Pest Elimination, Food Safety Specialties and EcoSure, secured Bloomin’s largest remaining franchise group globally, gaining more than 60 additional restaurants and a substantial increase in revenue — as well as helping ensure safe food at even more customer locations.
ACCELERATING WITH FORD NORTH AMERICA
The Ford Motor Company and Nalco Water have a long history together — more than two decades of partnership on water conservation, including optimizing water usage, reducing energy consumption and improving process operations at 20 of Ford’s manufacturing plants. In part because of past success, Ford awarded Nalco Water a three-year, North America sole-supplier agreement to help the automaker achieve its next-level water reduction goals at all 44 of its North American plants. Since work under the contract began last August, Nalco Water has saved Ford more than 60 million gallons of water.
WHAT A ROAD TRIP!
To introduce Ecolab’s newest business to personal care manufacturing customers in Europe, the Life Sciences Global Expert Team took a road trip. Visiting seven customer facilities in five countries over two weeks, the team learned about issues companies serving the personal care sector face, consulted on optimizing manufacturing processes and improving sustainability, and provided training opportunities for local team members who are helping develop the Life Sciences market. Customer response to the visits was overwhelming: the team identified multiple potential opportunities to make an impact by ensuring cleaner and safer facilities in the European personal care market while accelerating several sales opportunities.
ENSURING CLEANER, SAFER AND HEALTHIER FLOORS AT NEW YORK PRESBYTERIAN
With more than 2 million patient visits each year, the New York Presbyterian healthcare system sees a lot of foot traffic across its 4 million square feet of space. To help ensure safe and healthy facilities across the healthcare system, Ecolab provides a comprehensive floor care solution. Not only does our solution ensure shinier, cleaner floors, it has helped reduce the amount of time the customer spends maintaining and resurfacing the floors and has reduced staining.
