ASC is the leading national supplier of school and university cleaning equipment in Australia with clients including Bacchus Marsh Primary School in Victoria and Melbourne’s Greenvale Primary State School.
One of our most popular products? The ASC Eureka M3 sweeper. One of our best-selling small riders, the device is renowned for its minimal maintenance costs and downtime.
A great combination of technology and innovation, the user has the ability to clean large areas with both comfort and speed. So it comes as no surprise to learn that the device is widely used in transportation, warehousing and catering industries too.
One of our latest clients, Mandurah Baptist College in Perth, recently invested in the ASC Eureka M3 sweeper after embarking on the search for schools and university sweepers and scrubbers.
Prior to the purchase, the school was using traditional leaf blowers and suction sweepers to keep the grounds clean. Now, they can keep the area clear for students to enjoy with ease and efficiency.
Fellow client, Junction Park State School in Brisbane, also reported stellar results after we recommended that they invest in both the ASC MEP sweeper and the ASC Eureka E50.
Since making the purchase, they have been able to clean floors and keep tiles free from stains without the need for wet mops and buckets.
In turn, this has meant that their cleaning time has been significantly reduced – leaving room to tackle other housekeeping jobs on the agenda.
