Flintshire-based Lansdowne Industrial believes it could have the answer to the country’s graffiti crisis after official figures reveal graffiti costs the UK over £1 billion per year to clean up.
The manufacturer believes its Graffeco Plus is an effective and eco-friendly way of getting rid of unsightly graffiti from all surfaces without the need for the strict health and safety requirements many other treatments need.
It has been developed by the company, which was started in 2013, to be used on concrete, masonry and stone, as is available in either one or five litre containers. An aerosol graffiti remover is also available.
“We created Graffeco Plus because there are no other reliable graffiti cleaners out there that are as effective with the green credentials it has. It doesn’t need any hazard labelling, works in 10-15 minutes and rinses off in cold water,” said Ian Ross.
“Housing associations, councils and builders have told us they have been crying out for a product like this that really works, is environmentally friendly, bio-degradable, totally safe and complies with industry regulations.”
Lansdowne Industrial started life in 2013 having been formed by Ross with his fellow director Ian Frost. The pair have over 70 years’ experience between them, where Ross was primarily an industrial chemist making cleaning and maintenance products for well-known companies including Pizza Hut, Ecolab and KFC while Frost has principally been involved in advertising and marketing mainly in the construction sector.
The company now manufacture, import and distribute everything from cleaning sprays, wipes and liquids to safety gloves, many of which are eco-friendly or bio-degradable, for the building and cleaning trades from its North Wales base. It prides itself on meeting or exceeding current environmental standards and using hazardous substances as little as possible.
“Like everything we manufacturer and sell, Graffeco Plus is made with the environment in mind. We take our responsibilities in that area very seriously while using our knowledge and experience to give our customers products that work. This means they come back to us time and time again,” added Ross.
Lansdowne Industrial is exhibiting on stand A65 at the UK Concrete Show on the 25 and 26 February at the NEC in Birmingham. Find out more about the UK Concrete Show by checking www.ukcs2014.businesscatalyst.com.
