A. This international beauty products manufacturer wanted to “green” their janitorial supplies and eliminate caustic cleaning chemicals while containing costs.
The Aset Supply solution: Source, test and implement environmentally responsible cleaning products within the manufacturing facility. Particular attention was given to selecting products that meet the EPA’s Design for the Environment, Canada’s Environmental Choice, The Carpet and Rug Institute’s Certification and Green Seal criteria. Product costs were reduced by 50%.
B. This commercial high-rise was purchasing 2400 count M-fold towels at $17.90 per case (Sept/2008). The price appeared to be low and after reviewing the invoices it was determined that the effective case cost was $29.50 (when compared to a 4,000-count case).
The Aset Supply solution: Convert to 4,000-count M-fold towel at a case cost of $23.75 (Sept/2008), a savings of $5.75 per case or 19% savings. The added benefit was the reduction in cardboard boxes.
C. This multi-tenant building had a bar and restaurant located off of the tiled entrance. Two people had fallen due to slippery conditions caused by lightweight rental mats that were incapable of absorbing snow and salt.
The Aset Supply solution: Custom entrance mats designed to retain one gallon of water per square yard! There have been no other slip and falls since the installation of these mats. Rental mat expense has been eliminated.
D. A large manufacturing company needed to reduce their janitorial expenses due to the economic downturn. Multiple vendors were used and no formal ordering or product selection process was in place.
The Aset Supply solution: Consolidation of the purchasing resulting in a $19,000/year or 29% reduction of their annual janitorial expense.
E. A local community college installed a proprietary cartridge foam soap system throughout their school. Foam soap costs increased drastically due to the costly nature of the cartridge. Plus 100 – 150 ml of soap was wasted when custodians changed the cartridge before it was empty.
The Aset Supply solution: Installation of refillable foam soap dispensers. The savings are impressive – 75%
