VR Sani-Co Ltd, a leading washroom services provider specialising in ladies sanitary bin and nappy bin disposal services, is once again giving help and guidance to the next generation of entrepreneurs.
The company’s managing director, Martin Crowther, has again answered the call of EBP (Education Business Partnership) to help in local schools such as Ursuline College, Simon Langton Girls School, Hartsdown School and others. This help comes in the form of carrying out mock interviews, judging of schools business enterprise groups and doing presentations on what type of skills employers need from staff in the future.
Martin has many years’ experience in the washroom hygiene services market, gained in the larger national companies before setting up his own company with his wife nearly twenty years ago. Initially he introduced into the UK hospitality market the now ubiquitous Hygiene Bag Dispensing system which is found in most quality hotel en-suite rooms and which is also now used alongside the ladies sanitary disposal bins to assist in improving hygiene within the washroom.
As well as the sanitary bin and nappy bin disposal services, VR Sani-Co also provides a range of other services which include, Air Freshening, WC and Urinal Sanitising, Toilet Seat Sanitising, Soap Dispensing and Sanitary Dressing Dispensing. Alongside the company’s nappy disposal service it also provides as direct sale items nappy disposal bags and baby change units.
Whilst most of the company’s sanitary bin disposal business in based in Kent, in places such as Ashford, Canterbury, Tonbridge and the Medway Towns, continuing demand for its “no contract” sanitary bin disposal service has led to demand from other areas such as Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton and Hove as well as Croydon and most of the London postcode area.
The company has also helped a number of youngsters in providing work experience. “We always like the students to be doing worthwhile projects which are of benefit to them” says Martin. “ And in return some of the work they do provides valuable information for ourselves. I believe that good, successful companies have a responsibility to give something back to the community – not only that, it can also be great fun, work should be fun”.
