Metsä Tissue, part of Metsä Group, is extremely pleased to have has won FIRST place with its Katrin inclusive Dispenser range, in the product awards run by Tomorrows Care, and THIRD place in Tomorrows Cleaning.
Metsa Tissue's new Katrin Inclusive Dispenser range has been designed in collaboration with industry experts, as well as a wide variety of customers and end-users right across Europe, and particularly takes into account the needs of a wide selection of users, including children, the elderly and those who are visually impaired, or have physical disabilities.
"These are great industry recognitions and it is good to see that our range, launched 2 years ago, is still seen as leading edge and still appreciated by our customers and peers", says
Mark Dewick, Managing Director for Metsa Tissue UK. "And what makes this even more valuable is the fact that both the Care sector and Cleaning sector are extremely important customer segments for us, so being recognized by them for the work that we've done is a very positive sign for us."
"These awards are a great credibility statement for the design ambitions of Katrin Inclusive. We consider it a win for inclusivity and we hope that the rest of the market will recognise the opportunities and benefits of inclusive design", says project engineer
Henrik den Ouden Runshaug who led the design of the new Inclusive Dispensers.
Not only were the Katrin dispensers designed to be inclusive - these dispensers have innovative maintenance features and even the smallest details have been tested to ensure easy and safe usage for everyone. The dispensers passed the safety, durability and fit for use tests with flying colours, receiving a certificate from the global leader in testing, inspection and certification: Bureau Veritas. The dispensers were even tested for visual appeal. In comparison to other dispensers, a vast majority of the test subjects (74 %) preferred the Katrin Inclusive Design.
