Hako secures long-term deal with Inspirepac
A market leader in the production of quality corrugated packaging solutions has invested in the latest cleaning technology to keep its new warehouse facilities clear of dirt and debris.
Inspirepac has taken delivery of a Scrubmaster B310 R cylindrical scrubber drier as part of a long-term rental deal with Hako that’s backed by full maintenance support.
The ride-on battery-powered machine is now in operation at the company’s new facility in Markham Vale, near Chesterfield, where it’s playing a key role in maintaining efficient operations.
Mark Foster, Hako Field Sales Manager – North, explained: “Inspirepac are a new customer for us, and we carried out a thorough site survey to establish which machine would deliver the most effective and cost-efficient solution for them.
“Although the warehouse is new, the nature of the business means that a lot of small pieces of fine debris can collect on the floors, which has the potential to damage other equipment on site.
“To ensure that all this loose material is collected properly, we suggested a cylindrical brush version of the Scrubmaster B310R with a catchment tray. Thanks to its size, manoeuvrability and powerful battery for increased run times, this model is also ideal for large areas such as warehouses, as it can clean an entire facility in one go at a time that suits shifts, deliveries and other working patterns.”
Market leader in high-quality corrugated packaging solutions for national and international customers, Inspirepac is a dynamic, skilled and independent business offering outstanding print quality, die cutting, stitching and gluing capabilities alongside its contract packing services.
Through investment in technology and its employees, the company has become a major independent packaging force in the UK with a diverse client base.
Julie Thompson, Maintenance Supervisor at Inspirepac, commented: “The Scrubmaster really is an easy to use and efficient machine. Our facility uses water based inks and it has no problem cleaning up any spills.
“As well as cleaning the floor without any problems, it also dries quickly ensuring the walkways and other areas are safe and clean. Meanwhile our warehouse team are also impressed by its ability to ensure all areas of our business are kept clean and tidy.”
The Scrubmaster B310 R is also available with plate brushes and boasts a range of standard features ideally suited for heavy-duty applications, including:
- Large-capacity water tank (310L) for long, uninterrupted periods of operation.
- Depending on the version, the area coverage is up to 9,200m² an hour.
- Robust and heavy-duty design to ensure a long service life.
- Hako-AquaStop® enables plate brush machines to save up to 50% water and cleaning agent.
- Pre-sweep unit available.
- Easy access to key components for easy maintenance.
Hako Sales Director, Sylvie Giangolini, added: “We are delighted to have been able to develop a cost-effective cleaning solution for such a dynamic, forward-thinking company, and we’re looking forward to working closely with them in the years ahead.
“This latest deal illustrates the flexibility of Hako’s model range, which offers a machine for every application, however large or small.”
