Client introduction:

Thales WA is based on Garden Island and is a part of the HMAS Stirling naval base.

Thales in Australia is part of a leading international electronics and systems group serving the defence, aerospace and space, security, and transport markets in Australia and throughout the world.

The Challenge:

Stephanie (HMAS administration department) had previously asked for spare parts for their two 10 year old ASC Eureka MEP sweepers.

After an amazing 10 years of not spending a cent on these high quality push sweepers they decided to have them looked at and only a set of rubber skirts and a filter were needed to get them working 100% again.

WA Area Manager Ross Sheehan was not surprised when Stephanie emailed to get a quote on another 2 new Eureka MEP sweepers.

HMAS had shipped a vehicle to their Darwin site and sent the 2 old MEP sweepers to assist the cleaning of their NT location.

This opened the opportunity for the WA team to update their sweeping equipment.

The Solution:

The quote for the Eureka MEP was emailed out to Stephanie, who had the approval within a day. Once the invoice was approved Ross added the two sweepers into the ASC Mercedes delivery van ready for delivery.

The result:

Stephanie and the crew in the sheds now have two new sweepers to assist in keeping the WA beach sand out of the various sheds when the Fremantle Doctor comes in over summer.

You can only assume that they will get another ten years out of these new ASC Eureka sweepers.
