Power Towers is the world’s leading manufacturer of low-level access products. From their Leicester headquarters, Power Towers design and manufacture low-level access solutions that are innovative, clean and ergonomic for businesses throughout the world. Alongside parent company JLG, Power Towers’ mission is to provide safer alternatives for working at height while contributing to a more sustainable working environment.
To coincide with Power Towers moving into a new 100,000 sq ft facility, they required a cleaning solution that could handle the demands of operating across such a large area, whilst delivering a consistent and reliable cleaning result. Any solution would also need to quickly integrate into Power Towers’ operation and be easy to operate and maintain.
Working collaboratively, Power Towers and Briggs Equipment were able to successfully identify a combination of Hako cleaning machines that ticked every box. The mix of scrubber dryers and a sweeper was chosen to help achieve a complete clean across the entire facility, including intricate working environments, pedestrian walkways and communal areas.
The machines feature both pedestrian and ride on configurations, allowing for greater operational flexibility.
The Scrubmaster and Sweepmaster ranges are specifically designed to operate within industrial environments and the long charge life and straightforward operation helps consistently deliver a clean and hygienic workspace. The move towards a mechanical solution also allows Power Towers to save time and resources that would have otherwise been directed towards manual cleaning.
The machines were delivered in Q1 2021 and the positive impacts were apparent immediately.
Jonathan Dawson, Power Towers, commented: “We’re delighted with the positive impact that the Hako equipment has on our operations. We worked collaboratively with Briggs throughout the entire selection process to find a solution that truly met all our requirements. The straightforward operation and full support provided by Briggs, meant we were able to hit the ground running as soon as the equipment was delivered and integrate the machines into our working environment.”
