Sample Case Studies

Loretto School

The Problem: Experiencing escalating costs from existing suppliers, Loretto decided to open the contract for tendering and, as part of this process, proposed a trial period for Trichem products.

The Solution/Outcome: Although initial tenders were not as low as the school had hoped, the trialling of the Trichem products identified not only the quality of the products, but the increased coverage. On a payment programme which meant Loretto was invoiced not for what was delivered, but only for what was used – the monthly costs were reduced significantly.

The Testimonial: “Trichem have been supplying Lorretto School with chemicals and disposables for the last four years. In that time, we have found them to be efficient, professional and courteous. In this economic climate, their products are cost-effective and with the added advantage of having their own manufacturing facility, chemicals can be made to specific requirements.”

The Steward, Loretto School, Musselburgh, East Lothian

Mead Medical Services

The Problem: Trichem’s initial contract had ended and new tenders had been invited. Trichem’s costs appeared more expensive on paper and a new supplier was selected. However, due to the reduced product quality and increased amount of product required, costs to Mead Medical Services increased significantly.

The Solution/Outcome: The contract with the new supplier was terminated and Trichem were re-instated.  Dosing systems which monitor usage and a payment programme which means the customer only pays for what is used, means even lower monthly costs.

The Testimonial: “Trichem Scotland Ltd have supplied Mead Medical Services Ltd now for over four years with our janitorial and associated supplies into all our six residential care home locations situated throughout Scotland, from Aberdeen to Dumfries.

We have enjoyed their geographical ability to provide an excellent level of service whether it is on a regular monthly stock replenishment basis, or an emergency call to supply, where required.

Their products are of a good quality to help us in maintaining a clean and safe environment for our clients together with the added back-up of invaluable advice and guidance towards thesafe handling of their product range under the COSHH regulations for all of our staff alike.

We at Mead Medical Services certainly feel that we receive a value for money supply and service from Trichem and look forward to a continuation of this partnership in the times ahead.”

    The Steward Loretto School
  • In my capacity as a Hotel Services Manager for a group of Nursing Homes I have been trusting the services of Trichem for a number of years. In fact, I’d left this particular group to pursue a different career for a while, but when I was asked to return by the company, Trichem was the first company that I called to also come back to supply our cleaning chemicals & janitorial supplies. They are one of the most helpful companies that I have ever used (as well as being very competitively priced). All of them, including the Managing Director are just a phone call away & always available to give expert advice & guidance on all matters which my remit involves such as kitchen cleaning, all housekeeping & laundry services. I feel like I have a very good relationship with my ‘Account Manager’ Lee Birrell, who will often pop in to introduce new products & give advice. He is actually one of very few ‘Reps’ who I don’t mind looking in unannounced. He has also helped our company a great deal with C.O.S.H.H & staff training. I cannot recommend Trichem highly enough as a company for help & advice, excellent (economical) products as well as very competitive pricing.

  • I am a Trichem customer, I manage a charities facility in Fife for retired miners. It is only open seasonally, we swapped over to Trichem after I looked into the products and pack size. The price difference and the smaller outlay of chemicals were astounding. As we are all about cost savings and working to a budget, but not compromising on quality or our service delivery, it was an easy choice to swap to the Trichem products, our staff prefer the Trichem products. It makes their job easier and saves us money to spend in the Charites recipients. I would recommend anyone to look into and sample the products, the savings are astonishing.
