Notes to editors

The Company's hygienic solutions division includes OspreyDeepclean, the world's leading provider of chemical-free specialist dry saturated steam cleaning technology, which has been successfully proven in trials with University College London Hospitals to rid all areas and combat the spread of micro-organisms, including 'superbugs' such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile. 

In 2008 OspreyDeepclean was awarded a 14-month tender for the sole provision of specialist steam cleaning equipment to the UK National Health Service.  OspreyDeepclean's machines and patent-pending specialist tooling enable users to clean difficult to reach areas without the use of antimicrobial chemicals that may contribute to microbial resistance and have been designed to be used within hospitals on a daily basis without compromising safety and without the need to remove patients.
