LONDON, November 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Revolutionary adhesive napkin company Gant Innovations are celebrating this week after claiming the title Business Worldwide Magazine (BWM) Company of the Year: Tissue and Hygiene Industry Award. The Leicester-based firm's efficient, quality and cost-effective solution to a long term problem within their sector saw them achieve a partnership deal with a huge multi-national adhesive company. As a result their product is the first adhesive paper napkin manufactured without silicone tape or reinforcement. The adhesive paper napkin remains on the user's lap or clothing when eating and has led to numerous discussions with interested companies in the fields of dental and medical practice, as well as nursing homes, janitorial product, tissues, children's bibs, automotive and precision engineering wipes. In an independent survey commissioned by the company around 75 per cent of users described the new adhesive napkin as "excellent," with a further 59 per cent confirming they would purchase the napkin if available. "Winning this award has put a seal on what we've been attempting to achieve for the past six years," said company MD Gail Shaw. "We're delighted and hope it's just the start of what will prove to be an incredibly busy and successful future for the company." No tape or reinforcement is necessary for the napkin to work since the adhesive solution activates the minute the napkin is opened. It can also be removed and re-used at a later date. The GANTIK™ product was launched at the Barcelona trade fair in the spring of 2015 and is surging ahead in popularity within the Tissues and Hygiene market, which was valued at around €5 billion earlier this year. Shaw came up with the idea for an adhesive napkin after watching a TV programme where diners were obviously having difficulty getting napkins to remain put.
