Henry Unger honoured with posthumous award13th of March 2014
Henry Unger, founder of the global company that has been producing professional cleaning tools for over 50 years, has received a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Window Cleaning Association (IWCA).
Unger was passionate about improving the lives of window cleaners and strived to design products that achieved the best results while making jobs safer, quicker and easier for the professional. He was an active member of the IWCA from the start, strongly supporting its mission to develop professionalism, ethics and standards of safety.
The IWCA Lifetime Achievement Award was established to honor a current or former individual member of the IWCA who has made major life-long contribution to the window cleaning industry as a practicing window cleaner, supplier, promoter or leader.
Mark Unger, Henry's son, still helps to run the company today, together with his two brothers. He commented: "Although Henry is no longer with us - having passed away in 1996 - his legacy lives on. His greatest wish was to be remembered as someone who helped to make the industry more professional, developing equipment that enables window cleaners to accomplish their tasks in the easiest, quickest and safest ways possible."
