ECJ looks back on 20 years - Sebastiaan Parqui, Euroliance5th of April 2013
ECJ celebrates its 20th birthday this month. To celebrate our birthday we look back at the key trends affecting the industry over the last 20 years, with the help of some of the best-known names in the industry. Today, Sebastiaan Parqui of Euroliance.
The trends that we see are the need for and use of green cleaning products (biodegradable microfibre for example) and the integration of sustainability, the increase in the need for bundling FM and MS services and a growth in productivity.
All of these changes are positive. What stands out is the increase in the need for green products and integrating sustainability. For example the introduction of microfibre has revolutionised the delivery of basic cleaning (sweeping and wiping).
Robotic has never really broken through despite numerous attempts.
We would like to see more of an integration of the cleaning component. For example the structure of the building (choice of self-cleaning materials or easily cleanable, built buildings with dust removal by vacuum tunnels and robotics, etc).
