26 Years of Service Excellence!

As we celebrate 26 years in business, we thought it would be fun to share a few interesting facts and milestones with you.

We are a family business that was started in the original owner’s garage back in 1995! After renting premises for 10 years in 2005 we decided we were here to stay so we purchased and moved into our very own self-contained, purpose-built offices and warehouse in South London.

Members of the CHSA, the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association since 1997, Futures Supplies successfully achieved 100% compliance to the Distributor Accreditation Scheme.

To ensuring that our customers can have confidence in the quality of goods and in the provision of our services, we have been independently certified since 1997 for our Quality Management System to British Standard ISO 9001

The company’s Manging Director, Marc started working in the business in 1998. Working through all aspects of the business, and following 20 years’ experience at the sharp end, he became the natural successor to drive the company forward and lead the young dynamic team when in 2018 his Mum retired.

After surviving the dreaded Millennium Bug our premises survived a substantial fire in 2000 which started at a neighbouring National Tyres site. Continuing to trade without any break in service, we went on to achieve our first £1million in annual sales.

In 2004 the company ethos, to effectively tackle and improve its environmental, social and economic impact on the community, saw it provide its first work experience placements to disadvantaged young care leavers.

We won our first business award in 2005 for ‘Best Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility’ and have gone on to be recognised with over 30 accolades including numerous sustainability awards as well as Best SME!

Pioneering the use of Eco-Friendly products and sustainable business practices we became CarbonNeutral certified in 2006. Delivering carbon neutral supplies to our customers we are proud to say the net greenhouse gas emissions associated with our business are ZERO.

Since 2007 we have successfully achieved certification for our Environmental Management System to British Standard ISO 14001. This illustrates that Sustainability is at the heart of our business. We are passionate and committed to ensuring that we meet the needs of today without compromising those of future generations, through minimising negative impacts on our planet and our people. We purchased our first fully electric van in 2008!

Early adopters of social media and our first tweet went out on Twitter in 2009!

One of the few independent family business in our industry, we genuinely care about our customers. Our growth has been organic and as a result of consistently delivering high levels of Service, Quality, Value and Reliability with Environmental Consideration through Innovation and Technology.

We still supply our very first customer and have been since 1995! We believe in working in partnership with suppliers and customers, taking into account their individual needs, to deliver the best possible customer experience.

Dan, our operations Manager, and Andy our Office Manager, are brothers and have worked in the business for over 20 years. We think our team are our heroes, operating throughout the Covid Pandemic since March 2020, they are key workers supplying essential services and products to valued customers ensuring they could continue to open and run their businesses.

Happy New Year From Us All At Futures Supplies

It has been a tough year for everyone and as such, never has there been a more important time to continue to support each other.

As 2020 comes to a close, we really cannot thank all our loyal customers enough for your support throughout these turbulent times. Rest assured we will continue to go above and beyond to exceed your expectations in delivering an exceptional customer experience.

Our carefully selected suppliers will continue to receive our full support and we are grateful for your help in what has been one of our most challenging years in our 25 years of trading.

Our heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones from this awful virus. If nothing else this year has taught us all to be kind, think of others and remember business is not just about the bottom line but giving back and standing together to overcome this enormous challenge.

We hope 2021 will bring better times for us all in the meantime all the team at Futures Supplies would like to wish you and your families a very happy New Year and everything you wish for.

Marc Kemp, Managing Director.

Are Your Deliveries Carried Out by A Carbon Neutral Certified Company?

As an ethical business, our ethos is to deliver service, quality, value, reliability, with a commitment to environmental sustainability, using the most up to date technology and innovation.

Futures Supplies are committed to integrity and transparency in the way we operate, how we supply goods and services and in our business partnerships.

We believe that whilst it is critical, it is not enough to just reduce carbon emissions through our certified Environmental Management System BS EN ISO 14001:2015 targets. Therefore, we offset our unavoidable emissions through our partnership with The CarbonNeutral® Company in a responsible best practice model.

Unfortunately, we all have to use energy as part of our commercial process and therefore, until technology and innovations can provide more answers to help further reduce or eliminate emissions, ‘offsetting’ is the only way to deal with the problem.

In partnership with The CarbonNeutral® Company, Futures Supplies is delighted to have achieved CarbonNeutral® status since 2006. This accreditation positions us as an industry leader with one of the strongest and most credible approaches to climate change.

As a result of our reduction process coupled with measuring the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and offsetting the unavoidable emissions associated with our business, our carbon footprint is reduced to net zero.

Have You Got Confidence In Your Supply Chain?

As Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association Accredited Distributor, Futures Supplies are committed to trading ethically and maintaining standards in the industry and throughout its supply chain.

We are delighted that the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association has launched an Accreditation Scheme for the Manufacturers of Cleaning Chemicals alongside its already recognised Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops and its Distributor Accreditation Scheme.

This means the CHSA has achieved its strategic ambition of accrediting all members. The combination of the Association’s rigorous Code of Practice and its Accreditation Schemes guarantees its members trade ethically and work hard to maintain standards in the industry.

The existing Chemical Manufacturing members of the CHSA have passed the Scheme audit and are now Accredited. The members of the Scheme as it launches are (in alphabetic order): Bio-Productions, Chemex International, Diversey UK, Eastern Valley Chemicals, Easy Cleaning Solutions, Evans Vanodine International, GoJo Industries, Greyland, Holchem Laboratories, Kitchenmaster NI, Mirius, P&G Professional, Prochem Europe, PVA Hygiene, SC Johnson Professional and Selden Research.

All members of the Scheme have signed a commitment to maintain the highest standards and trade ethically. They have successfully passed an audit, conducted by the CHSA’s Independent Inspector, against that commitment. This includes is a determination on the part of Scheme members to support and facilitate the recycling of the plastic containers holding the cleaning chemicals, initially by including the recycling emblem on the packaging.

The Schemes mean buyers of cleaning and hygiene products can be certain they are trading with an ethical company and that ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’. Through its Accreditation Schemes and Code of Practice, the CHSA maintains standards in the industry.

Greenspeed PROBIO Cleaning Products

Greenspeed has developed a range of probiotic cleaning agents, which ensure optimal, sustainable cleaning.

The Probio range has been awarded both the EU Ecolabel, and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.

How it works

  • When cleaning with Probio, a layer of probiotics (friendly bacteria) is left behind on the surface.
  • These friendly bacteria remove organic contamination, which otherwise gives rise to the formation of odours.
  • The friendly bacteria, produce enzymes, these enzymes break down the microscopic dirt into tiny particles.
  • They are able to absorb the tiny particles and digest them as food, and continue to function for days after cleaning.
  • The results: a microscopic deep clean and long-lasting absorption of odours.

Greenspeed Probio is the first range of probiotic cleaning products worldwide to obtain certificates for both the EU Ecolabel and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.

Key features and benefits

The probiotic cleaning agents are made up of millions of friendly bacteria, which remove organic contamination and odours

The probiotics (or friendly bacteria) continue to be effective for days after cleaning

Very safe to use, as the products use friendly bacteria, they do not have any hazard symbols.

Infection Control Guidance

A UK-wide public information campaign has been launched to advise the public on how to slow the spread of coronavirus and reduce the impact on NHS services.

The government-funded campaign will include public health advice on how people can protect themselves from infection.

Similar to the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ campaign used for flu and norovirus, it will promote important hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.

An effective infection control programme can reduce the transference of infectious diseases, caused by micro-organisms, which can be spread in various ways, including direct or indirect human contact.

Regular or frequent disinfection of high touch surfaces will reduce the number of micro-organisms on these surfaces and help to prevent their spread.

“Basic hygiene such as washing our hands regularly and using tissues when we cough and sneeze can play an important role in minimising the spread of viruses like this.”

– Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock

Futures Supplies, have a large range of Hand Washing, Hand Sanitisers, Facial Tissues, Gloves, Surface Sanitisers and Wipes available.

Loowy – The Toilet Brush Reinvented

Loowy is a new, revolutionary way to clean toilets, replacing the old fashioned and dirty toilet brush with a silicone, antibacterial and water repellent waveform blade for cleanliness right up to the edge.

It’s also quick-drying, easy rinse and durable.

By staying clean and clog-free, it lasts far longer than a conventional toilet brush – saving money and reducing plastic waste.
