News: Xeros selected by the best


Rotherham high-tech firm, Xeros, now counts four out of the world's top five hotel groups as customers for its innovative polymer bead laundry cleaning system.

Based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), Xeros is a Leeds University spin-out that has developed a patented system using a unique method of special polymer beads rather than the usual large amounts of fresh water to clean clothes.

Recently admitted to AIM, Xeros is commercialising the system which uses at least 70% less water, up to 50% less energy and approximately 50% less detergent.

According to the 2014 World Hotel Ranking, IHG, Hilton, Marriott, Wyndham and Choice are the top five hotel groups measured by rooms globally.

As a result, Xeros cleaning systems are now installed, or contracted to be installed, at sites with each of these four hotel groups in the USA, a priority market for Xeros given the increasing scarcity and cost of water in many states. Single or multiple cleaning systems will be in operation with these customers and handling daily demand in busy hotel laundries.

It is estimated that hotels in the United States consume over 400 million gallons of fresh water daily just to launder sheets and towels.

Bill Westwater, CEO at Xeros, said: "Four of the world's top five hotel groups have now agreed to use Xeros cleaning systems in the USA and we are actively contributing to their achievement of their CSR goals in relation to sustainability. We've demonstrated how Xeros technology can bring lasting and meaningful benefits by way of superior cleaning, water and energy reductions and enhanced service through the commercial use of our technology for laundry.

"We are highly encouraged by the early adoption of our cleaning systems by these important customers and we look forward to working with them going forwards."

Raising millions by launching on the stock exchange, Xeros is powering ahead with the development and commercialisation of the first real revolution in laundry in 60 years. Xeros hopes to tap into the global laundry industry that is worth $100 billion, including both hospitality and commercial cleaners.

30 systems have been installed or are committed to be installed in the US, UK and EU and Xeros estimates that approximately 120 further machine installations are expected for 2014. A US domestic laundry prototype has also been developed.
