Our History

The history of Cannon Hygiene

Since we introduced the first feminine hygiene service to the market in 1955, Cannon Hygiene UK has recognised the importance of providing a friendly, professional, locally provided service, whether your business is owner managed or a UK national organisation.

By focusing on reliability and customer service wherever we operate, the business has grown significantly and the Cannon Hygiene global brand is now represented in 40 countries.

As part of the larger OCS Group, and as a 5th generation family business we offer stability and reassurance in good times and harder times. We remain true to the family’s values and ethics of doing business. 

Importantly we benefit from not being a quoted company, so we can take a longer term view; invest in the very latest technologies, invest in systems supporting innovation and invest in our people.  We do what is right for you and your customers, to support your business, your brand and your reputation.

Whilst our history is extremely important to us and something of which we are rightly proud, we know our current and future success is dependent on your support. We have to deliver on our promises each and every time. To do this our approach to working with you is personal and embedded in our culture.
