Georgia-Pacific Professional Receives 5th ISSA Innovation Award

ATLANTA – Garnering the most votes by industry distributors and end-users, Georgia-Pacific Professional’s SofPull® automated touchless towel dispenser edged out two competitors to win the 2011 ISSA Innovation Award in the Paper/Plastics Category. This innovative touchless towel dispenser provides a hygienic, cost-effective solution, with a slim, innovative profile that allows it to fit in virtually any washroom, break room, or ‘back-of-house’ work area.
 
“Georgia-Pacific Professional is honored to receive this year’s ISSA Innovation Award,” said Alex Volpe, vice president and general manager – towel category, for Georgia-Pacific Professional. “This recognition validates our ongoing commitment to meet and exceed our customers’ needs and expectations by producing washroom solutions that improve hygiene, reduce waste and increase cost savings.”
 
The ISSA Innovation Awards recognizes notable products and services developed by manufacturers in the sanitation industry. Award winners will receive a trophy and a display in the special 2011 Innovation Award Winner section of the “Then & Now Product Showcase,” featuring Don Aslett’s Museum of Clean, at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2011, which takes place October 18-21 in Las Vegas, Nev. 
 
This is the fifth year Georgia-Pacific Professional has received an ISSA Innovation Award. The company was recognized for its enMotion® recessed towel dispenser in 2005, Safe-T-Gard® door tissue dispenser and trash receptacle in 2006, enMotion® Impulse® 8 towel dispenser in 2007, and most recently for its SmartStock Ultra® cutlery dispenser and carousel in 2008.
 
The Sofpull automated dispenser is available in both translucent smoke and new translucent white, and it can help enhance a facility’s image while its touchless technology can help reduce the risk of cross-contamination and create a healthier workplace. Additionally, its one-at-a-time dispensing and adjustable sheet settings can help reduce usage over kitchen roll towels*, helping to provide low-maintenance upkeep with fewer roll changes.
