Chemex appoints new Managing Director

Hygeine and cleaning specialists, Chemex, has appointed Michael Graham as its new Managing Director. With over 20 years of experience working with established franchised companies such as Safeclean, Furniture Pro in the USA and Pitman Training, Graham is well equipped to successfully continue Chemex's national expansion.

Chemex is currently celebrating its 25th year in business and Graham is looking forward to continuing the company's growth, he said: "Chemex is a proven model delivering success for both franchise owners and the franchisor and there is tremendous potential for further growth.

"We will be putting more energy and resources into the support of our franchise partners and into a recruitment drive to create over 100 franchised operations within the next couple of years. This network growth is key to satisfying existing and potential national accounts within the hospitality and health sectors. We are also looking to recruit a new Business Development Manager to cover the south of the country."

Melvin Lusty Chairman of Chemex said: "We are delighted Michael has joined us. He has a successful track record and will play a major part in keeping the company moving forward."

Graham continues to explain why Chemex is one of the UK's leading hygiene and cleaning franchises.

"The nature of our business is that we provide necessities not luxuries for our customers on a repeat basis, this provides Chemex with a stable platform for franchise owners through times of economic turbulence.

"It is one of the reasons why we have franchise owners who have renewed their contracts with us four or even five times, a claim only a small handful of franchises can make. We are also continuing to develop new biological products to meet the needs of customers for a green, eco-friendly approach to health and hygiene."
