By joining international cleaning supply group INPACS, local buying group RapidClean is now in a position to source ‘the best products available anywhere in the world at excellent prices’. In early April RapidClean announced that it had become an INPACS’ associate member and that organisation’s first non-European member.
Berlin-based, INPACS has an annual turnover of $2.2 billion. ‘As the largest European wholesaler and service enterprise group for cleaning and hygiene products, INPACS serves more than 400 application fields with over 12.000 items,’ states the supply body’s website.
“RapidClean remains 100% Australian owned and operated, and it has 41 independently owned and managed stores around the country that provide benefits to their local communities,” noted RapidClean general manager Bruce Lees.
“A major benefit for RapidClean customers in Australia is they now have a supplier with the buying power to ensure that they receive the best products available anywhere in the world at excellent prices.
“This is the first time that INPACS has welcomed a new member outside the European region and is a clear demonstration of INPACS’ motivation to become the global ‘One Stop Solution Provider’,” Lees added.
INPACS offers a full range of products in categories including washroom hygiene, cleaning chemicals and equipment, cleaning machines, personal protective equipment, catering disposables and guest amenities.
RapidClean chairman Greg Wild said, “We strongly agree with INPACS’ ‘One Stop Solution’ philosophy. This is just one aspect that will lead to an excellent cross-continental cooperation between our two companies.”
