Technical Knowledge & Industry Expertise
We look in depth at the processes and potential problems which businesses in a variety of sectors may face, and work with the knowledge that every sector, business and factory holds bespoke challenges which need to be addressed to fully optimise their cleaning regime.
The Kersia team, from sales to scientists, work closely with businesses to advise on all aspects of hygiene including: the selection and application of cleaning and disinfection products, dosing and control, pathogen management, allergen management, cleaning advice, cleaning optimisation, hygiene management systems, training, audit and review. Kersia aim to ensure that all customers are aware of what would be regarded as cleaning and disinfection best practice for their circumstances.
Field Based Teams
Our field based teams have in-depth knowledge of their customers, delivering optimum cleaning solutions but also responding to customers’ challenges by delivering new product solutions that respond to a business issue or need. They understand the industry and your sector and have often held technical or hygiene support roles in similar businesses.
The technical centre team back up the field-based teams with analytical and problem solving expertise for our customers and is staffed by scientists with experience in a wide range of fields, including Product Development, Scientific Investigation, Chemical Legislation and Quality Control. The state-of-the-art laboratory at our head office has access to a range of investigative tools including FTIR and X-ray Spectroscopy, Force Gauges and Surface Tension measurement as well as traditional wet chemistry. A purpose built ‘wet test’ laboratory allows us to simulate many site cleaning operations and is used for product evaluation and for customer training.
