Ecolab becomes new "Preferred Partner" of the German Hotel Association (IHA)
The German Hotel Association (IHA) is the industry association for the hotel industry with around 1,400 members. Ecolab will be a preferred partner of the German Hotel Association from 1 January 2020, thereby underlining its partnership with the hotel industry in Germany and worldwide.
“The challenges facing the hotel industry in Germany are enormous”, explains Michael Brüggemann, Director of Corporate Accounts at Ecolab Germany. “Not just a shortage of skilled workers and issues around working hours are challenges facing the hotel industry, but also the subject of sustainability via the avoidance of plastic waste and safety in the working environment of hotel employees are playing an increasingly important role in the marketplace.”
As the world’s leading supplier, Ecolab, with over 49,000 employees, is helping to meet the daily challenges of hygiene and kitchen cleaning, housekeeping and laundry and is researching the development of ever cleaner, safer and above all more sustainable processes for customers in over 170 countries. “With Ecolab, we’re gaining a globally active partner who will support our members with its specific expertise in almost all aspects of everyday hotel life”, explains Stefan Dinnendahl, Managing Director of the Hotel Association. Through its new partnership with the German Hotel Association, Ecolab wants to dovetail even more closely with the industry and its customers, share best practices and knowledge and stand by the hotel industry as a strong partner in dealing with its challenges.
