Facility services’ provider ISS and Karcher GmbH have signed a global partnership agreement under which the German-based manufacturer will supply cleaning equipment to ISS Group companies worldwide. The agreement is for an initial five years.
According to a press statement released this week, Karcher was selected against several rivals and, along with one other vendor, is now an exclusive supplier to ISS.
“We selected Karcher based on its comprehensive product portfolio and tremendous innovative strength,” stated Peter Schack, global head of procurement at ISS A/S. “This cooperation will enable our company to set uniformly high standards for the cleaning equipment used worldwide, thereby offering our customers the guarantee of an excellent cleaning result.”
Markus Asch, deputy-chairman of the Karcher management board, sees the signing of this contract as an endorsement of Karcher’s strategic alignment.
“We are grateful for the great confidence that ISS has placed in us and our products. Focussing on our customers and their cleaning needs is central to our corporate strategy. This cooperation agreement with ISS shows that we are on the right path with this approach,” said Asch.
