facilities. They are just as effective as other products that use high levels of
chlorine but are less irritating to the skin, so there is a real occupational
health benefit from using them. We’re pleased to have agreed this deal with
Panton McLeod Americas, which we hope will be the start of a long association
between our two companies.”
