Client Introduction

Bendotti Exporters is based in the fruit bowl of the Southern Forests town of Manjimup, which is three hours south of Perth. They produce over 10,000 tonnes of high-grade potatoes for the domestic and international markets.

The Challenge

Bendotti has many large sheds where the produce comes in from various farms to be prepared for packaging as well as to be made into WA Chips or French Fries.

Due to the huge incoming, there is a constant supply of dirt and dust entering the sheds. Moreover, the movement of the forklift within the sheds also produces dirt inside. Bendotti also has large cool rooms, so containing all of the airborne dust is crucial for preventing the air conditioning filters from getting clogged.

The Solution

Paul, the Operations Manager, from Bendotti contacted WA Area Manager Ross Sheehan and asked about the ASC Eureka M1 battery sweeper. He had been doing some online research and wanted to learn about the technology used in the M1’s dustless dust filtration system.

Ross emailed Paul a live demonstration video, which displayed how the ASC Eureka M1 worked. Paul was also very inquisitive of how and why the ASC M1 had such a good reliability rating in the market research.

The Result

Paul was already impressed by the machine, who instantly ordered a new ASC M1 sweeper from ASC’s Ross Sheehan after the demonstration. Delivery was arranged to the company’sManjimup facility, where Ross met the Managing Director and Dispatch Manager of the company.

Ross conducted a short user training session with both men and emailed a Maintenance sheet for the day-to-day check of Mach 1 before use to ensure the smooth operation of the sweeper.

The company was assured of the best ASC Eureka after-market support, with ASC having spare parts and service personnel located in its company-owned premises in Perth.
