News: Xeros expands into new export markets


Innovative Rotherham company, Xeros, has announced that it has expanded its commercial laundry footprint into Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America.

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.

Admitted to AIM in 2014, Xeros is commercialising the system which uses at least 70% less water, up to 50% less energy and approximately 50% less detergent.

The patented polymer bead cleaning system has a number of identified commercial applications and Xeros has first targeted the billion dollar US laundry market, where there are now over 100 systems installed or committed to be installed. The group signed up 61 partners to its US reseller model during the biennial industry Clean Show in Atlanta, with forward channel partners taking advantage of water scarcity and water cost issues and bouyed by the financial incentives on offer from major utility companies.

In Canada, Xeros has entered into a forward channel partner agreement with Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners, a dry cleaning and laundry specialist, under which Xeros' polymer bead laundry systems will be sold and serviced. Michael St. Clair services much of Vancouver's hospitality industry and has retail locations across the city.

Xeros has also entered into a forward channel partner agreement with Worldwide Laundry, Inc., a full service laundry equipment, parts and supplies company, to sell and service Xeros' polymer bead cleaning laundry systems. Worldwide Laundry, Inc. will be facilitating the delivery of Xeros cleaning solutions to the broader Caribbean and Latin American markets, both of which offer significant drivers for growth as severe drought conditions and rising energy prices are increasing demand for ecologically sustainable but commercially viable solutions.

Bill Westwater, CEO at Xeros, said: "We are hugely encouraged by Xeros' expansion internationally, further evidencing the relevance and increasing acceptance of Xeros' near-waterless and energy-saving cleaning solution in geographic markets that can no longer ignore issues around water scarcity and need for energy conservation.

"These agreements also demonstrate the success of our forward channel partners programme, in which we create a broad sales and service network across the Americas of established laundry industry players.

"In a world that can no longer depend on traditional aqueous processes, Xeros offers unprecedented performance and value for customers."
