So, where did it all start and most importantly, what has made IWM a leading supplier of industrial hygiene equipment?

Where It All Started

The industrial cleaning machine company, IWM, was founded over forty years ago in Birmingham by the father of the current Managing Director Carl Hollier. Carl began working for his father at IWM on the shop floor. He spent his time learning the trade and getting to know the machines that are in use worldwide today.

After learning about the machinery itself, Carl then transitioned to a sales role. During this time period he travelled all over the country serving companies in need of industrial sterilisation and sanitisation equipment.

Rooted Values 

The sales team has expanded over the years to become a knowledgeable and proactive workforce. The team commit themselves to meeting the needs of different industries worldwide. Our approach to business development is to build strong relationships with the companies we serve. Therefore, by doing so, we are also investing the time needed to truly understand company pain points. Additionally, we are able to manufacture a solution that integrates seamlessly in their business model.

Retaining trust and long standing relationships is a priority for the team here at IWM Ltd. Despite scaling to a global supplier our core values of honesty and integrity still remain at the heart of every decision we make. As a result, our reputation for delivering high quality and reliable equipment has remained unaltered.

At IWM Ltd, we have the skills and experience of a large, well established company. As well as, untouched core values of a small family-run business. Consequently, with these things combined, we feel that we have everything we need to continue delivering the perfect end-to-end service to our customers for many years to come.

Forty Years On 

Having started as a small business which has scaled to a company supplying worldwide, it’s safe to say that we’ve worked with our fair share of businesses over the years. As a result of this experience, the company as a whole has a highly in depth knowledge. In addition, we have great understanding of the sterilisation and sanitation requirements that companies and their industries must adhere to.

With this in mind, our proactive approach to these demands means that we can supply bespoke solutions. We expertly tailor machines to individual company’s and their needs. It could be a small craft bakery needing an industrial dishwasher to wash utensils and cooking equipment. Or, a large distribution centre where our machines are used to wash and dry three thousand plastic crates an hour. Either way, we can meet a wealth of industrial requirements with our industrial washing machines.
