Evans Vanodine was established in 1919 when William Charles Evans started manufacturing disinfectants and liquid soaps in Salford, Manchester. The company, which is still owned by the Evans family, is now based at Walton Summit, just outside Preston in Lancashire, where the company’s modern 100,000 square foot factory, standing on a 5 acre site, includes extensive manufacturing and warehousing facilities. Advanced production facilities involve the use of 10,000 and 14,000 litre stainless steel and heavy duty polyethylene tanks, together with six-head filling lines, complete with automatic capping and labelling machines.
The company is renowned for its strictly defined procedures within the quality control laboratory and throughout the manufacturing process. Their commitment to Total Quality Management was recognised when the company was awarded ISO 9001 (Cert. No. 09535).
This is complemented by highly qualified and experienced product development chemists and microbiologists using up to date equipment and protocols, which contributed to the microbiology laboratory being awarded a National Accreditation (UKAS) for disinfectant Testing (Cert. No. 1108).
Evans Vanodine has also achieved accreditation by the British Standards Institution under the Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001 (Cert. No. 506072). This requires the company to commit to the protection of the environment and fully comply with all relevant environmental legislation.
Evans Vanodine understands the importance of hand washing, as one of the most significant ways to protect yourself and others from infection and the spread of germs. The Evans hand care products cover a wide variety of applications and systems, helping you choose the most suitable product for your needs.
Commitment to quality and service is deeply rooted in the Evans family tradition and this, together with dedicated staff throughout the company, will ensure continued success for Evans Vanodine and their customers in the future.
