Lime Supplies

So what's behind Lime's fresh approach to cleaning supplies...

Hindsight has always been said to be a wonderful thing, however here at Lime we like to think about thngs a little differently. Rather than doing something then wishing we had done it differently, we have spent years looking at how things are done in the cleaning supplies business and quite simply have come up with a way to do it better.

Our ethos

Bring the best products to the market place at the most competitive prices, backed up by the latest systems and IT knowhow to allow us to deliver unrivalled service.

Our systems

To deliver great prices is one thing, to back them up with the highest level of service is quite another. The Completely integrated ecommerce and back end system that Lime work on delivers order processing and up to date information in real time. An order placed can be picked by our warehouse 5 minutes later and dispatched for next day delivery in a matter of hours. If this isn't enough we are so sure about our service levels that we allow our customers to have access to their own reports online at the touch of a button including:-

  • Full track and trace and proof of delivery filterable by order, site, region or contract
  • A full report on 'first time full' deliveries filterable by order, site, region or contract
  • A full report on 'deliveries on time' filterable by order, site, region or contract
  • A full budget control system & report with hierarchical approval levels
  • A full report on product spend to aid rationalisation and standardisation

This information is not just as bolt on to our system but is built into our back end letting you see what information we see, when we see it.

Our team

Systems are great, no they really are, but at Lime we recognise that without the right people then nothing really happens that is worth while.

  • Customer Services team of up to 23 people at any time, 7 days a week 8am to 8pm
  • Professional warehouse management team
