Show will help enhance the quality and quantity of those activities effectively. And, people will notice the efforts.” Talking about the solutions available for masses, he said, “There are washroom and hand hygiene solutions that will benefit each and every person of the society.”
“We have never known that such a range of new costeffective and scientific cleaning solutions ever existed in market. Thanks to Clean India Show for giving us such a huge opportunity to understand & implement the right cleaning, hygiene & waste management solutions,” said Hemant Mehtani, President-Association of Industries Madhya Pradesh.
Following the footsteps of tier I cities, the region has marked high presence of MNCs, registering huge investments in the pipeline; yet 70% of the cleaning market remains untapped.
While the awareness is slowly on the rise, with 12 cleaning equipment distributors present in the local market, the Show created a powerful bustle for companies to penetrate deep and look beyond the metro cities.
“Coming to tier II & III cities like Indore is well timed and a wise decision by the organisers. After visiting the Show, I am assured that it will change the meaning and methodology of cleaning in this region. Cleaning till today is limited to a particular class of the society, but having seen such wonderful ride-on sweepers and scrubber driers, nobody would hesitate to enter into this profession. The Show can play a vital role in meeting the mission 2019” said Lalwani.
New Company launched
The Show has been an ideal platform for launching not only products but also companies joining the cleaning industry. Fully dedicated to cleaning, Institute of Cleaning Sciences and Management was officially launched by Shankar Lalwani at the Show. The Training facility will be available at two locations, Kolkata and Vishakhapatnam.
Saurav Mukharjee, Strategic Mentor-ICSM said, “Cleaning is one of the sectors in India where the entire educational offering is inadequate. People joining the industry have no insight into the subject. It is our objective to create and develop this Institution as a global centre of excellence in the field of cleaning science and management. The Centre aims to serve four kinds of services: Training, Solution, Audit and Research.”
The Centre offers various job-oriented courses such as Hygiene Technician Certification Program and Certificate in Cleaning Science and Management, targeting dropout students to working people. It is in talks with cleaning companies to extend their industrial expertise and with FM companies for the job placement.
“There is a huge potential, as no company in India measures and rates the quality of cleaning. Besides training, we will also offer auditing of cleaning quality. This will help everyone to check the hygiene & cleaning rating of a restaurant before having food there,” he added.
