Bridgestone (WA) invests in a Heavy Duty ASC M6 sweeper
Bridgestone Mining Solutions (Pilbara Region) contacted ASC’s Western Australian office, as they required a reliable sweeper solution for their large Port Hedland warehouse.
They use huge earthmoving, Off-road, loader/dozer, grader, and other industrial tyres for stocking their mining products in their warehouse.
Bridgestone’s new Port Hedland warehouse was completed in 2017. The warehouse area is approximately 5500 m2with a 2000 m2 apron area.
The heavy traffic required the warehouse to be cleaned daily, and their staff used large brooms for keeping it clean.
However, the dust for a challenge for them, and they needed to get their hands on the right machine to deal with the dust. They needed a reliable machine with a proven track record in the Pilbara District from a supplier that would supply them with spare parts whenever needed as well as technicians for servicing the machine every now and then.
ASC’s Ross Sheehan presented them with a comparison of the outstanding Eureka Mach 6 with its counterparts on the market.
He came up with practical examples and case studies where the ASC M6 was already operating successfully in the local mining businesses.
With this information, Bridgestone Mining Solutions were able to make an informed decision. This proven testimony was enough to convince Bridgestone that the machine could handle the harsh Pilbara conditions.
Bridgestone didn’t think twice to place the order. ASC pre-delivered the Heavy Duty M6 at the ASC Perth Warehouse. The machine was ready for freighting to Port Hedland, and 24 hours later, it was on site ready for the staff training.
Ross Sheehan himself flew out to Port Hedland for commissioning the Eureka Mach 6. He trained the operators on using the sweeper as well. He also met and guided the local service technician to carry out any future servicing requirements effortlessly.
The Pilbara is famous for its red dust. Now Bridgestone has the most efficient solution for sweeping up all the leftover dust and deposits from the mining operations.
