Biscuit Time

THIS exciting looking package arrived on my desk this morning.  What could be inside?

Wow, what a treat we had in-store for us! The fantastic Pink Cake Box have made us these fabulous Morclean biscuits! Individually packaged, tied with a neat little bow, these really are a wonderful Christmas gift for us all at the office. 
Our MD, Peter Morcey,  was particularly impressed with them. Look at our logo on the super-thick, delicious icing! This is very clever baking. 
Thanks Pink Cake Box! Have a look at her website for more information, and some mouth-watering inspiration! 

Bear With Me

Morclean Bear at Work: The Movie is out and now available to watch on YouTube. 

He really is a great help here around the office. Superb telephone etiquette and pretty handy with the fork truck! 

Please like and share the video! 

And, if you want a bear (and why wouldn't you?) see this post here or here about how to get your paws on one.

Vapour Steam Demonstration

Hotel Vapour Steam Demonstration
A local hotel in Chesterfield is now the proud owner of aMorclean Vapour Steam VP3600.  A member of our knowledgeable sales team, Keith, went to deliver the machine himself and to give a detailed demonstration on how to safely use the machine to it's full potential. This training service comes as standard with all of our machines bought within the UK. 
The machine in question, the VP3600, is a fantastic piece of kit, which can turn any kitchen into a spotless haven in hardly any time at all, with none of the elbow grease! There are numerous different fittings, heads and brushes that can be slotted onto the multifunctional machine and can adapt to any sort of cleaning you could find in a hotel. 
Using steam is a particularly hygienic way of cleaning, creating a sterile environment, as the heat of the steam kills off all known bacteria. The machines require no harmful or expensive chemicals, as the pressure and temperature of the steam can lift off even…

Bespoke Interceptor

This week sees the departure of two rather special interceptors.
Two separators for hard-standing areas have been custom made for a company in Malta. They are for safely removing and oil from water, and safely dispose of. 

The company that contacted us were seeking a UK company in particular, to give advice on this pressing problem. The main issue for them was the pipe sizes. As you can see in the pictures - the pipes coming from the interceptors are quite a bit bigger than usual; 450 mm to be exact! To cater for this unusual pipe size, a custom made interceptor had to be made. Morclean, of course, obliged, and created the separator to exact site requirements. 

Morclean custom made the system in kit form. It has large, separate pipes that will fit exactly onto the separator. This was especially important to the company, as they wanted there to be no danger of leaks whatsoever, due to regulations on the site. Of course, for a full unit it would be too large to transport, (the pipes alone …

Little Interceptor

This mini-interceptor was needed for an INTERCEPTOR EMERGENCY! A company were installing a vehicle wash station, and they were let down by their original supplier. By a stroke of luck, Morclean had exactly what the needed, in such short notice. It was dropped of in our yard, and then immediately taken away to be installed before the projects looming deadline. If you need an interceptor, no matter how big or small, don’t hesitate to contact Morclean for solid advice.

Hazardous Dust Removal

Morclean have just sold three ATEX  APPROVED Vacuum Cleaners to a bakery Company in Stoke-on-Trent.
The reason for the need to use ATEX vacs is because residue from some ingredients used in their baking operations, i.e.  flour, sugar, milk powder, present a possible flash hazard when being picked up with a vacuum cleaner.  All ATEX vacuum cleaners are built using anti-static ( conductive ) materials, preventing ignition of any potentially explosive/hazardous dusts in the atmosphere. The Company opted for air operated units, but mains operated ATEX machines are also available from Morclean . 
Oh, and, did I mention the also  company make sausage rolls? I hope the delivery van that's dropping the vacs off comes back with some snacks for us!

Say No To Cold Calls

Here is an empowering story about a man who triumphed over cold-callers. You CAN turn the tables on them! 

Our boss liked this story so much, he wanted to tell our readers. We all know what it's like, why do they keep calling us, how did they get our number, why won't they get the hint? 

You can visit the gentleman's website here for tips on losing the cold callers, and maybe even making a bit of extra pocket money while your at it.

Final outcome favours Morclean

Here at Morclean we endeavour to provide the best possible service and are continually under pressure to do so. This is in fact why we feel it's perfectly reasonable to place just as much pressure on our suppliers

Recruitment isn't an easy task, and the people  that agencies provide are not boxes or pieces of machinery. However the agents that perform this process have to deliver their services properly - and on time

We're pleased to finally announce that a major, global, recruitment agent, a big player in their market place, have finally backed down after fighting our claims that they hadn't in fact acted professionally and efficiently. What we felt they had in fact done is acted most unprofessionally, and we provided evidence of this in the way of  copy emails containing surprising content and insulting comments

We're pleased to say that we took on a giant, we were not put off  by threats of action nor did we agree that we should pay all their fees when they had cle…

SpookFest 2012

This Halloween Weekend saw the fantastic SpookFest take place in Matlock, at the beautiful Hall Leys Park.

Everyone came in style, donning fancy dress and face paint galore! Even this little one made the effort!

The park was gleaming in autumn colours, and the excitement of Halloween was definitely in the air. 

Some great local bands provided entertainment in the park, and the after-parties at the local bars kept the live music going until the early hours. 

As usual at the events that are held at Hall Leys Park, many of the local shops and boutiques held stalls, selling and array of fantastic gifts, sweets and treats. It's great when everyone comes together to make a day like this really special and well worth going to.
Many thanks to the dedicated organisers of the event, and to all the people who came to the event and made the day fun! And to our very own Peter Morley, who supervised the security of the event to ensure it all ran smoothly. 
Thank you to Lynn Sheperd of Matlock People …
