Nathalie Alanvert, Aftersales Manager, Assistant to the Board of Management

Nathalie Alanvert, Assistant to the Board of Management and who has been part of the company for 30 years, remembers the initial contact with MEWA more than 10 years ago. She took up an invitation from MEWA to join the Pollutec trade fair in Lyon. That initial contact proved to be very successful and, when compared with other service providers, MEWA showed genuine flexibility and professionalism in accommodating Parex’s needs. Since then, Parex has stayed true to MEWA, given that even after all these years, MEWA continues to find optimal solutions in the categories of industrial wipes and workwear, as it continues to meet new requirements at the Parex research centre.



To get the ball rolling, MEWA initially supplied the company with reusable wipes. After several years, this was followed by workwear and safety products including goggles, gloves and protective masks. For Parex, it is the convenient Full-Service offered by MEWA that is tailored precisely to the needs of businesses, while also making it cheaper than buying workwear and wipes. Dropping off, collecting, washing and replacing items are all part of the MEWA rental service. Regardless of staff changes or size adjustments, MEWA adapts to changes with complete flexibility. Parex doesn’t have to lift a finger, and is rewarded with perfect laundry once a week. With the MEWA industrial wipes system, members of staff are always sure that they have the right wipe to hand. Fresh batches are delivered by MEWA at scheduled intervals and any soiled wipes are collected and cleaned using environmentally-friendly practices. The MEWA Safety Container (SaCon) is there for collection, safe storage and transport. This can be rolled up and stacked, and is also hermetically sealed, thus offering excellent protection against fire risk.


Reusability and environmental protection are crucial for the wipes.

“Conserving resources, ensuring sustainability and the Full-Service were an absolute winner from the very start. The reusable wipes from MEWA and the practical safety container are a big help to us” says Nathalie Alanvert. “In addition to the benefits including quality, and the fact that it is excellent value for money, the ecological benefits are also very important to us. Thanks to MEWA, we have done away with the need for disposable items, relying instead on reusable wipes that are environmentally friendly. This is a crucial consideration for us.”

66 members of staff kitted out with MEWA workwear from head to toe

Members of staff at Parex were previously supplied with workwear from another vendor. The team simply had no choice in the workwear they were given at the time. But since MEWA has come on the scene, they are free to choose.
“Now they have workwear and protection items from MEWA, and everything originates from a single source. Smocks, polo shirts and trousers are available for members of staff.Safety shoes, goggles, protective masks and gloves can all be ordered from the MEWA brand catalogue for occupational health and safety.
