Client Introduction

Fruitico is based in the fruit-growing district of Meelon, which is located two hours south of Perth. They grow grapes predominately in this area for the international market, and they have farms further north where they grow the tropical types of fruit as well.

The Challenge

Andy, the farm manager, purchased an ASC Eureka E83 ride on floor scrubber from ASC WA area Manager Ross Sheehan back in November 2018. Ross called Andy as he was visiting other companies in the region and found Fruitico had doubled the size of their production area and needed a sweeper. As it was the off-season, Andy showed Ross around the new area. Andy now needed a cleaning system to control the amount of farm debris and soil from entering into the packing area from the outside apron. The debris typically included dust and chunky objects, the occasional grape. All this debris tended to escape their sortation process and fall on the production line. He needed a sweeper that was heavy-duty yet simple to operate, as well as rust-resistant to enable it to be washed down frequently for removing the grape juice from the floor.

The Solution

Andy saw that the ASC Eureka MEP sweeper ticked all the boxes and worked outstandingly, and hence he purchased the sweeper straight away.

The Result

Fruitico now has two very reliable ASC Eureka machines to keep the large climate-controlled packing shed clean. They have developed confidence in the ASC products to provide them with a cleaner site for the long term due to their great experience with ASC.
