1989: Sky TV has started broadcasting, unemployment is at a nine-year low, Ford takes over Jaguar, the M42 is completed.  And 30-year old cleaner Tom Sultana is taking himself on a training course with Prochem. And now he’s back…

“I went on a two-day course to study carpet and upholstery training,” recalls Tom. It turned out to be money well spent as he has steadily built himself a successful and well established business in Bromley-based All Gleaming Clean.

Now he’s back at the Prochem training academy on another upholstery course. Has much changed? “The biggest change is the emphasis on health and safety’” says Tom. “Of course we know more than we did about the subject today.”

And did he actually learn anything new? “Yes, and I’ll be honest and say I didn’t think I would!” laughs Tom. “I run my two-year old Prochem Everest truck mount machine seven days a week, with my son Ben with me now, and being on the job itself has in my view been the best way to learn the trade.

“But I’m pleased to say there is still more to learn about processes and of course there are many new solutions to be tried and tested.”
