Montreal, QC – Avmor Ltd., a Laval-based company and Canada''s leading manufacturer of professional cleaning solutions for the Jan/San and Foodservice industries, is proud to announce that eleven members of its sales team have obtained the designation of Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) "ISSA Certification Expert" (I.C.E.) from ISSA – The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association. ISSA, which represents more than 5,500 cleaning industry organizations, administers the CIMS program and grants the I.C.E. designation to those individuals who have demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge of the management and sustainability elements contained in the CIMS Standard.
To achieve certification, the Avmor sales team attended a full day training session facilitated by Jim Peduto, Chief Executive Officer of the American Institute of Cleaning Sciences (AICS) and one of the cleaning industry''s leading authorities on the use of standards to drive service improvements. As a result of this certification, the Avmor team is now uniquely positioned to provide training and consulting services to cleaning organizations interested in complying with and preparing obtain CIMS certification.
In order to obtain CIMS certification, cleaning service organizations must demonstrate compliance with the five core principles of management best practices:
*Health, Safety & Environmental Stewardship
*Health, Safety & Environmental Stewardship
CIMS was recently expanded to include new Green Building (GB) criteria aimed at providing organizations with what they need to obtain points under the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operation and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System for green cleaning activities. The CIMS and CIMS-GB programs apply universally accepted management principles to an entire organization – rather than to an individual, product or process. As such, CIMS and CIMS-GB certification helps distinguish companies and other organizations with third party confirmation of their quality, dependability, and commitment to environmental preferability.
Obtaining I.C.E. Certification is yet another way in which the Avmor sales'' team has demonstrated its ability to provide customers with the best service. Avmor will continue to encourage its team to educate and challenge themselves to meet the changing needs and demands of customers at all management levels. In today''s competitive market, Avmor understands that delivering is the key to customer satisfaction.
