AccorHotels Signs Sole Supplier Deal With Diversey

Diversey has secured the extension of a sole supplier agreement with AccorHotels until December 31, 2019.

Rapidly-growing AccorHotels is the sixth largest hotel chain in the world, with 20 brands ranging from luxury to economy properties including Raffles, Sofitel, Fairmont, Pullman, Swissotel, Novotel, Mercure and Ibis. In total, AccorHotels operates more than 4,200 hotels in 95 countries, staffed by over 250,000 hospitality experts; each dedicated to making guests feel welcome.

AccorHotels has recently demonstrated an outstanding dynamism on the market, with key acquisitions (e.g. Fairmont Raffles Swiss Hotels), new alliances (e.g. Banyan Tree, Rixos) and the launch of its latest lifestyle brand, Jo&Joe. All in all, AccorHotels opens a new hotel in the world every 36 hours!

The contract now awarded to Diversey covers the supply of cleaning solutions, as well as the company’s range of TASKI floor care machines. AccorHotels will also receive support from Diversey’s Consulting team, with solutions for food safety and brand protection.

Ilham Kadri, CEO of Diversey said: “Securing this deal with such a large and ambitious operator, in the face of intense competition, is a fantastic achievement for Diversey. During the process of renewing the contract - which was first awarded in 2009 – AccorHotels has again recognized our key company values like quality, sustainability, corporate social responsibility, global scale, technical service, lowest cost to serve and innovation capabilities.”

Clément Divanach, Directeur International des Achats d’Exploitation, for AccorHotels added: “Diversey is a true partner to AccorHotels. In addition to their market-leading products and systems, we welcome and value the service and expertise that Diversey provides to our hotels around the world. This will become even more important with the separation of AccorHotels Services and AccorHotels Invest., as this will result in a change from an owned to managed hotels business model.”
