Industrial Cleaning Machine Manufacturers Association (ICMMA) Appoints New Secretariat

ISSA, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, announced additional support for the UK Industrial Cleaning Machine Manufacturers Association (ICMMA).

Rob Shaw and Rachel Eastop of Rob Shaw Associates will provide secretary support from now on, taking over from Hazel Langley. Rob has more than 14 years of experience providing scientific expertise on falls prevention to the UK regulator, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), as well as commercial consultancy and training in the UK and overseas. Rachel has a strong professional background and proven track record of excelling in marketing and project management positions.

Regina Henrich, ISSA European Manager, says, “Thanks so much to Hazel Langley for her dedication! She has always acknowledged the needs and concerns of all and promoted a positive, encouraging working environment. I’m also looking forward to working with Rob and Rachel now. Both will be a strong asset to the company, supporting and bringing out the best in the ICMMA team.”

On stepping down from the role Hazel Langley said, “My involvement with ICMMA began in 2014 at a point when ICMMA’s membership had dwindled after a period of inactivity. With the support, commitment and funding of The Building Futures Group, along with the tenacity of Kevin Webb and Andrew Dunning of Numatic International, the ICMMA group was resurrected.  New strategic collaborations and the incorporation of the robotics agenda meant the group has since become reinvigorated with new members and direction.”

In 2016 the responsibility for oversight of ICMMA transitioned to the ISSA, a move that assured the group’s continuity and since then the UK’s Industrial Cleaning Machine Manufacturers Association has operated as a special interest group of ISSA.

Now, in order to progress the member’s objectives, additional Secretariat support has been sourced. Hazel adds, “I am delighted that the running and progression of ICMMA can be future-proofed by the appointment of Rob Shaw and Rachel Eastop. Their collective knowledge, skills, experience and contacts are so perfectly aligned to the group’s members objectives. They are well positioned to deliver on the current and future tasks required to continue to drive supply chain innovation to the cleaning industry.”

Speaking about their new appointment Rob said, “Rachel and I are really excited about taking the ICMMA group forward and having already met with some of the members and listened to their agenda already are forming ideas to add value.”

The change in Secretariat was announced at the ICMMA Members Commercial and Technical Meeting which took place at Diversey on Wednesday, 5th September, in Northampton.
