Happy Retirement to Julie and Dave Hogan (left and right) who are presented with a colourful bouquet from General Manager Paul Stebbings (middle) on their last day at System Hygiene.


The couple joined us last February when Swiftkleen, the company which they founded in Leyland and ran for 28 years, merged with System Hygiene.  


Established in 1990, Swiftkleen supplied cleaning, nursing and catering products to hundreds of loyal customers throughout the North West. 


"After nearly three decades of owning and running Swiftkleen, Julie and myself decided it was time to start slowing down," explains Dave. 


The merger meant that both companies would operate under the name System Hygiene from purpose-built headquarters in Altham, near Accrington. 


Julie recalls, "The start of 2018 was hectic, relocating our staff to Altham and combining our knowledge of operations, products and service to give the best possible customer experience." 


It was their focus on putting customers at the heart of everything, including the growing numbers choosing to order online through Amazon and eBay, that  made Swiftkleen the perfect addition to the System Hygiene family.  


Paul Stebbings, General Manager, says," On behalf of System Hygiene's management, we would like to extend our appreciation for the amazing work done by Dave and Julie during and beyond our merger. Their long hours, dedication and professionalism have impressed and inspired our team immensely." 


The last words go to Julie and Dave, "All good things must come to and end. For us, that day is today. As we look forward to a long and happy retirement, we would like to thank everyone at System Hygiene who made us feel part of the family. Thank you."
