Halcyon Group wins Cleaning Specialist of the Year
As published in the Roscommon Herald, January 2021
Kicking off the new year in winning form, Halcyon Group has won Ireland’s Cleaning Specialist of the Year for 2020/21 in the Prestige Awards. The judging process scrutinises all aspects of the business from product offerings to customer service, marketing, commitment to sustainability and more.
The judges were particularly impressed by Halcyon’s innovation during the COVID-19 crisis, offering hospital-grade infection-control fogging to hospitals and nursing homes, schools and businesses needing certified decontamination. The judges also praised the company’s stringent policy on compliance and the fact that Halcyon carries professional indemnity insurance, which enables it to certify its work and protects clients against legal liability.
Recognising commitment to specialist cleaning excellence
“It is great recognition of our commitment to providing excellence in all aspects of the business,” said Halcyon Group’s Managing Director, Peter Kirwan. “I’d like to thank all our clients who nominated us for the awards and also our dedicated staff who have been working through the pandemic to ensure businesses remain compliant, fire-safe, decontaminated and hygienic.”
