Milne Agri WA Purchases An ASC Eureka E 81
Milne Agri Group is based in East Rockingham, WA and has a start-of-the-art facility processing of both Mount Barker Chicken and Liveringa Station meat brands for the supermarket companies.
The facility is refrigeration chilled and busy. The area they needed to be kept clean was the dispatch, receival & processing areas.
The company wanted to achieve a hygienically cleaned floor as there was a lot of movement of pallets, pallet trolleys and foot traffic.
ASC WA Area Manager arranged with Danny (Production Manager East Rockingham site) for an onsite demonstration with his staff operators.
Ross demonstrated both the ASC Eureka E81 walk behind and the ASC Eureka E83 the ride on floor scrubber.
The operators were keen on the ASC Eureka E83 rider but as there was narrow lanes with dead ends it meant it was not as useful as the walk behind ASC Eureka E81 with the brushes mounted on the front of the machine. The Eureka E81 was the ideal machine for the company.
Having brushes front mounted allowed better control of the machine and the simple dashboard made it easier for all operators to use.
Danny initially had thoughts of buying a Ex-fleet machine, but when weighing up the pros and cons, he and upper management decided that a new machine would be a better fit. It also helped greatly that Ross had one in stock at the Wangara warehouse and was able to deliver it and train staff on the use of the machine.
