Asbestoclear (part of the AWM Group)
Asbestoclear is a cement-based asbestos removal and disposal service that was launched through nationwide builder’s merchants in 2006. Simply Marcomms worked closely with Asbestoclear following a complete branding exercise and took on the pr and marketing communication support materials, event organisation, exhibition support and advertising and closely monitored all sales as the service was rolled out nationally.
Simply Marcomms successfully generated heavy weight pr coverage in the building and construction trade press and journals; plus local pr with newspapers. The end of the first launch year saw Asbestoclear being awarded the Top 10 Building Product by the acclaimed top trade title ‘Professional Builder’Magazine.
The Asbestoclear service was been developed to meet a need for builders and tradesman. It is a specialist safe, legal and cost effective Asbestos advice and clearance service. The user can ring the hotline number or go online for advice and to arrange collection. This dedicated national service is managed centrally, enabling a controlled solution for small arisings of asbestos waste.
Asbestoclear is available from all major UK builder’s merchant’s (including Buildbase, Roofshop and Travis Perkins) and is sold as a pack for the general builder to safely remove cement-based asbestos from domestic premises then book a collection service through the AWM Group.
