1952 – Winston Churchill was a regular Kleeneze customer, the Ideal Home Exhibition saw Good Housekeeping equip. their showhouse exclusively with Kleeneze products and Kleeneze became a ‘public company’ with the workers becoming the recipient of share options, so they could enjoy the benefits of the Company.

“On 11th May, 1923, Kleeneze was born,” stated the Golden Jubilee edition of the company newsletter. “During its fifty years there have been many changes, but never has the opportunity to strengthen ones security been greater. The product range has never been as varied and new lines are continually being developed and added to the range.”
