Tempted by a price that looks too good to be true? Tread very carefully.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price has been forgotten.”

It is all too easy to put price at the top of the list when it comes to procurement, after all, what else is there?  Quite a lot it turns out – payment terms, speed of delivery, customer service levels and product quality to name but a few.

One area where it pays to be ultra careful is regarding the product itself.  Take the Alcagel® hand gel we supply for example (our product code: 800-501A), which we have carefully selected from among the myriads of options on the market, owing to its consistent high quality and effective formula which meets all the current BS EN certifications, and in addition, is not tested on animals.  More often than not, it is advisable to be sure of the product you are purchasing, and to be frank, who wants cloudy, sticky, or even worse, potentially health-threatening hand gel?
