PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 24, 2012 (PRNewswire) -SCA, the makers of the Tork brand of away-from-home paper products, today announces the launch of its new finest collection of hand towels which includes Premium Extra Soft, Premium and Advanced Soft.

The new portfolio of hand towels, available in roll and folded options, improves restroom aesthetics and experience for tenants, employees and customers. Additionally, these towels are compatible with a variety of TorkSelect dispensers.

"Studies show that customers and tenants judge a facility largely by the condition of its restrooms," said Josh Renihan, Director of Washroom and Regional Marketing for AfH Professional Hygiene-North America. "If you think about it, other than their work space, people in office buildings spend more time in the restroom than any other part of the building. That's why we've made several enhancements to make our premium products the softest, highest-performing products available. These products actually have a quality and softness you can see and feel."

Some of the enhancements that make Tork's premier line of hand towels best-in-class for overall performance include:

  • Faster absorbency rate for better hand drying

  • Superior softness for a higher-quality feel

  • Enhanced appearance for a high-end restroom image

  • An attractive leaf embossed design

  • Tork Easy Handling packaging makes product cases easier to lift, carry, open and dispose of

Most Tork Premium Extra Soft, Premium and Advanced Soft hand towels feature a guaranteed savings in paper usage, and all are covered by the Tork 100% satisfaction guarantee. Renihan said, "We're committed to providing the finest luxury hand towels to fit our customers' needs and put our guarantee behind that commitment."
