Christeyns announce record turnover as company meet for annual sales conference

Chemicals manufacturer Christeyns hosts group-wide conference for its key business units from across the UK and Ireland at the Marriott Hotel, Leeds. A leading supplier in the hygiene world, manufacturing detergents and supplying engineering equipment and expertise from its base in Bradford, last week hosted a conference for over 100 employees.

Representatives from all its divisions, including laundry, food hygiene, specialist construction chemicals and professional hygiene came from across the UK to attend the event. The conference provided the opportunity to announce 2019 targets for the business, for both Christeyns UK and its parent company Christeyns N.V. and for staff to look back on the successes and challenges of 2018.

Nick Garthwaite, managing director Christeyns UK, led the opening address and update from a UK perspective. Alain Bostoen, CEO of Christeyns Group, provided the global viewpoint. 2018 proved another successful year for the company with the overall UK group turnover exceeding £60m for the first time in Christeyns’ history.

From January to December 2018 all divisions recorded positive turnover growth, with one division growing by 17 per cent. Key issues such as industry trends and the impact of Brexit were discussed as well as training, marketing and business development across all its market sectors.

Christeyns’ new Ozone cleaning technology, Speed-O, was launched to the sales teams, a development that looks set to be a hot topic for 2019. “Conferences such as this are essential for the success of the company as a whole, providing opportunity to talk to and learn from other colleagues,” commented Garthwaite. “We all gain a deeper understanding of the latest products and industry developments as well as insight into what will be the key issues for our customers over the coming year.”
