Australian Sweeper Company (ASC) is the number one provider of brickyard and aluminium smelters, sweepers and scrubbers across Australia and New Zealand.
With over 28 years of cleaning experience under our belt, we lead the way in offering a comprehensive range of floor sweepers to suit all industries.
Whether your business requires a ride-on cleaning vehicle or walk-behind sweeper, ASC is here to help you with a suitable product to match your needs.
To demonstrate this, we’ve worked with a large number of clients over the years including Austral Brick and Rio Tinto Weipa.
Producing brick is a dusty process with sand, lime and ash regularly infiltrating Austral Bricks’ factory floors.
To combat the issue, they invested in the ASC M6 Diesel which is designed to control dust with comfort and ease. The team had their first ASC M6 for well over 14 years, further demonstrating its reliability.
A completely hydraulically controlled high dump sweeper, the device is designed to clean congested areas and large floor spaces with ease and time efficiency.
The company ships bauxite to customers around the world and the ASC Dulevo 3000 sweeper has been used by the business to help minimise the amount of bauxite falling into the ocean.
