Alex Reid, UK master licensor agreed the deal with Clements earlier this year and the Belfast-based company has already signed-up three drycleaners. One, Craftsman Cleaners of Belfast is now working with the system, and two others, one in Lisburn, northern Ireland and the other in Dublin should be starting working with the system shortly.

Patrick Dowling, sales director of Alex Reid points out that the GreenEarth cleaning process is now fully patent-protected in Europe. A few patents had been pending but these were granted mid-January and should be published in the near future.
