This year’s ISSA/INTERCLEAN in Chicago was a big success for Essity and our customers! We’re pleased to announce that Essity’s Tork Image Design™ Line featuring Tork EasyCube™ Intelligent Restroom System won top honors in the Dispenser category in both the online voting and Visitor’s Choice rounds of the 2016 Innovation Awards. Tork EasyCube Intelligent Restroom System was featured in restrooms throughout McCormick Place, as well as the Essity booth, offering attendees a hands-on look at the first-to-market smart washroom solution that improves cleaning staff efficiency.
The theme of our booth was “Empowering you with new possibilities,” which encompassed the migration of Wausau Paper brands to Tork, and was the central theme for all the Tork innovations within the booth. Of particular interest to attendees was the Tork Bath Tissue Dispensing System for OptiCore®, which is launching in February 2017. The innovative design ensures maximum use of each bath tissue roll before advancing to the next roll, creating cost savings and cleaning staff efficiency. The system also features a two-part core for more than 25 percent reduction in core material which decreases waste produced.
For the first time, Essity previewed Tork Stainless Washroom Upgrade Solutions, a collection of Tork products that are easily adapted into a wide range of standard recessed folded towel cabinets and bath tissue dispensers. We challenged attendees to unlock their hidden potential and rethink what it means to update their restrooms. Customers were excited about how easily the Tork Stainless Washroom Upgrade Solutions could improve the image and performance of their restrooms, without the hassle and cost of a complete washroom renovation.
Other highlights of the show were Tork Image Design and Tork Elevation. Launched at ISSA in 2015, Tork Image Design dispensers were developed to create premium ambiance and high-end functionality for users. The Tork Elevation dispensers range features subtle solutions that suit any modern restroom.
We are excited about the success of this year’s show and the valuable connections we made. We look forward to seeing everyone during the year and again at next year’s ISSA show in Las Vegas.
