Vale Paul Bishop
With sadness we announce that Paul Bishop lost his fight with Cancer on Sunday 17th March 2013.
Paul was 59, born in Wales, spent a large part of his life in NZ before shifting to Australia in 2001. He worked on both sides of the fence in Sterilising – first as a CSSD Manager for over 14 years before joining the Sales team for Baxter, Cardinal then Whiteley Medical. Paul had a large network of friends and colleagues in healthcare including Sterilising, Gastroenterology, Infection Control and Environmental Services.
For those that had the pleasure of meeting Paul he was a gentleman with a happy, positive attitude to life. We will all miss his sense of humour, his smiling face and the healthcare community is a poorer place with his passing. Rest in peace.

Whiteley Corporation Winner of Hunter Business Awards-Business Achievement 2012
On Friday the 3rd of August 2012, Whiteley Corporation was announced as the 2012 Hunter Business Awards - Business Achievement Winner. The judges said that the award for Business Achievement is among the most difficult to select. Entry after entry demonstrates outstanding achievements in a range of very different sectors.
Greg Whiteley - Managing Director
|For nearly 80 years, nationally and 17 years here in the Hunter, Whiteley Corporations has manufactured innovative cleaning and disinfectant products for industrial, medical and health care sectors. Whiteley’s commitment to quality research has led to benefactor status at an internationally respected university, multiple collaborative university studies and in the awarding of a range of government assisted research grants. The judges were impressed by the evidence that much of the success of the business comes from the staff’s continuing commitment. They work to be at the forefront of innovation, research and development, excellent customer service and manufacturing at international standards.
The company’s on-going research and development has produced world leading infection control products such as Viraclean - Australia’s largest selling Hospital Grade Disinfectant into hospitals and healthcare.
The development of Viraclean also resulted in a revolutionary Hepatitis test method developed at the University of Sydney which has changed testing for this virus globally. Viraclean kills a broad range of bacteria and viruses including the high profile bacteria most of us know as Golden Staph and Influenza and Hepatitis B virus. The judges noted that an industry specific challenge faced by the company is the very necessary slow and painstaking processes to find the best formula. Disinfectants require extensive and costly microbiological testing as well as significant regulatory barriers
We at Whiteley Corporation are very proud of our staff, as it is a team effort and this awards is for every person in the company.
