Classic squeegee and accessories celebrate Unger milestone
In 2014 Unger is celebrating an amazing 50 years of supplying quality equipment to cleaning professionals - and it is marking it in style by launching some limited editions of the products that have made Unger a trusted name in the cleaning industry.
When it was first introduced, the ErgoTec Squeegee was a welcome breakthrough in ergonomic design, offering increased comfort, balance and greater control to window cleaners. Its moulded handle ensures a secure grip when wet and is warm to the touch in winter. The special edition '50 years' squeegee features:
* ErgoTecTM Soft Rubber Green - Sharp edges enable thorough wiping for superior finish
* Ergonomic two-component handle in exclusive grey colour with silver metallic effect
* Laser engraved 50th Anniversary logo
A 50 years washer with Ninja sleeve is also available, featuring an ergonomic two-component handle with water wells, in exclusive grey colour with silver metallic effect. The washer sleeve is highly absorbent with two abrasive side pads featuring built-in rows of scrubbing fibres, complete with a 50th Anniversary logo on the Velcro fastening.
Both products are available individually, but also feature in a 50 years anniversary set, together with Unger's 'bucket on a belt'. This convenient holdall for important tools has a clip lock for quick fastening and is ideal for use when working on ladders, indoors, or in narrow, confined spaces. The set, which features the special 50th Anniversary logo on each product, includes a Certificate of Authenticity and is packed in a box set. All products will be available throughout the anniversary year, while stocks last.
"This launch will be the first of many special anniversary activities throughout the year - so watch this space!" promises Jochen Wagener, Unger's Senior Marketing Manager for Europe. "Each 50th Anniversary product will celebrate an established Unger cleaning tool that has stood the test of time, helping professionals to clean faster and smarter, increasing safety, comfort and return on investment.
"We are producing these products as a thank you to our customers, enabling them to join us in commemorating our half century, as their loyalty and feedback have helped us to reach this incredible milestone."
Unger was founded in 1964 by Henry and Barbara Unger in the attic of the home of Barbara's grandmother in Hamburg, Germany. While the original intent was to manufacture window cleaning products, the company soon expanded its product line with a view to becoming the market leader in the sanitary supply and retail cleaning fields. Adopting this as the company's mission, Unger strives to produce high quality, innovative tools that help professionals clean more productively and safely, as well as offer superior customer service to both end users and distributors.
Today, Unger is an international company with offices and manufacturing facilities in the US and Germany, and sales offices in the UK and France. Unger now provides innovative cleaning solutions to more than 80 countries worldwide.
