Throughout the lockdown period Futures Supplies have remained open, continuing to supply essential key workers with their cleaning, hygiene, janitorial and PPE requirements.
 
Our delivery drivers are carrying out 'contactless' deliveries, they have been provided with gloves, alcohol hand gel, and cleaning wipes.

May Stock Update

The coronavirus is having a significant impact on the cleaning and hygiene supply sector, creating what is likely to be the most challenging environment ever experienced.

The fragility of the supply chain, combined with unprecedented demand for certain products and significantly reduced production capacity presents challenges.

Supply-side shortages are expected in biocides and virucides, gloves, disposable polythene aprons and non-woven cleaning wipes.

We expect supply to be scarcer in the coming weeks and months

If you are a cleaning company or reseller of our products we ask that you: 
  • Plan now for shortages of these products; alert your customers. 
  • Protect your existing customers first. - Meet their needs before taking on board new customers you may struggle to serve.
  • Be careful about the commitments you make. Shortages in key areas are likely to make it difficult, if not impossible, to meet demand.
Antibacterial Wipes

We have experienced frustrating restrictions & delivery failures from even the largest wipe manufacturers.
As a temporary solution, consider alternatives. We have plenty disposable cleaning cloths, as well as blue & white centre-feed rolls

These can be used in conjunction with Evans Safezone Plus Virucidal Sanitiser.

Save Your Bottles
Packaging Crisis!

Due to global packaging supply issues, manufacturers are limiting orders of 'Trigger Spray' & 'Pump Bottle' products

Evans Vanodine have advised that due to the world-wide shortage of trigger sprays, they will now be supplying cases of 6 x 750ml cleaning product with each bottle having a 'flat cap' fitted - they will include two trigger spray heads inside each box.

We can supply a 5ltr concentrate or variant of most products in our range, along with pumps & taps for you to easily refill your existing bottles.

This will help save single use plastic waste, and often save you money too.
