Arrow Solutions – part of the £21m-strong Reabrook Ltd – is expecting significant global interest in its new advanced cleaning and maintenance products for the aerospace, industrial and commercial hygiene fields.

It’s part of a £1m investment programme that the company is embarking on to grow market share in the UK and in strategic international territories, such as the Middle East and the Far East.

The latter has enjoyed significant funding to create a stand-alone trading entity in Shanghai, offering sales, technical support and a commercial base for the entire region.

Sales director at Arrow Solutions, Jonathan Lane explained: “Our strategy is based on a desire to become the supplier of choice for specialist chemical products, setting the standing in cleaning and maintenance in the process.

“Traditionally, we have produced hundreds of products and there is still a substantial market for many of these. However, our focus will increasingly be on introducing new high quality products that provide the best possible performance, boast the best possible environmental credentials and, in certain cases, offer genuinely new solutions.”

Lane continued: “Half of our turnover is exported overseas and we see international sales continuing to grow with the developing industrial markets in the Far East and Middle East growing at pace and looking to improve their commitment to health, safety and environmental standards.

“We have a dedicated team in place to support our network and warehouse in the Middle East, while our subsidiary in China is now fully operational. Arrow Shanghai Trading Company will turnover nearly £1m in its first twelve months and be a multi-million pound business in the years to come.”

Arrow Solutions, which operates world class manufacturing facilities at its site in Moira, Leicestershire, is currently in discussion with a number of airlines about the impending arrival of a radically improved version of its aircraft disinsectant product that is sprayed in the cabin to combat the transmission of disease.

Another innovation the company is working on at the moment is a new dishwashing cleaning solution, which will act as the centerpiece of its complete range for commercial kitchens.
