What were your cleaning needs before contacting Hako?
“We were dealing with a lot of processing oils from the processing saws spilling on to the floor. Subsequently making them slippy, sticky and a general health and safety hazard. Two years on, as a result of buying the machines, we have had no more trips or slips. From a Health and Safety standpoint the machines have been amazing.”
“Our site gets regular visits from customers, and our cleanliness is always commented on”.
“Hako machines are very hard wearing, we have had a few incidents with getting them too close to saw blades etc, so far, no issues with them at all”.
“Our Hako team have been very good, our ASE right through to the engineer and the Customer Support Team in the office, the support has been very good”.
