Client Introduction

General Transport Equipment (GTE) is based in Perth’s suburb of Kewdale (WA). They are a leading supplier of customized transport equipment. They specialize in semi-trailers, chemical tankers, and rigid truck bodies.

The Challenge

GTE has several large aging sheds where they bring in large trailers to be repaired or built. There is a lot of dirt, dust, welding and grinding fragments on the floor as the sheds are quite open.

GTE’s Manager Dave contacted WA Area Manager Ross Sheehan to ask him for a solution to his dust problem. This dust issue was further increased by the use of hand brooms for sweeping his sheds, which caused trouble for the staff as well.

The Solution

Ross arranged a demonstration of the ASC Eureka MEP sweeper with its award-winning dust control system. The demonstration started in the dusty workshop area. It cleaned a 20-sqm area in just a couple of minutes with no airborne dust visible.

A staff member then took the initiative, proceeded to sweep more areas, and was amazed by the area he could clean compared to the broom, and nothing was up to his nose. Every spectator was really impressed by the performance.

The result

Two days following the demonstration, an order for an ASC Eureka MEP was placed with more to be purchased. Another great result in WA’s battle to beat the spread of dust.
