Client introduction:

Sunpalm Australia Pty is an Australian owned organization with its R&D and manufacturing facility in Wangara, Perth. They produce items based around the gardening industry.

Premium Plastics and Langley Fertilizers (part of the company) have been producing high quality plastic pots and slow-release fertilizers for the nursery industry and retail sector.

The Challenge:

Parit is the Logistics Manager for Sunpalm, he called the WA Area Manager Ross Sheehan looking for a solution to their dust problem. The manager was close to purchasing a forklift sweeper attachment but need a second quote so Parit did some research on Google and found industrial sweepers on the ASC webpage. Ross arranged to visit the site to see what was needed & provided an assessment of the site requirements. The fertilizer preparation area has a heavy build up of dust. The operators use brooms to move it but it take 40 minutes and creates a huge dust storm.

The plastic production area is much cleaner but has forklift rubber tyre dust along with plastic pieces left over from making the pots.

The Solution:

Ross always travels with the ever popular ASC Eureka MEP push sweeper.

On this occasion Parit and his manager had the time to allow Ross to demonstrate the MEP.

The fertilizer production area was chosen as the area to sweep.

It had the heaviest amount of dust and debris.

Once Ross set up the correct machine brush pressure and set off to do the first line of sweeping both Parit and his manager were gob smacked by its performance.

Within a few minutes the main area was swept and no airborne dust was visible.

The result:

Parit was about to order a single Eureka MEP sweeper when the manager returned. He was so impressed with what he has seen during the demonstration he came out to order a second sweeper.

One for each section of the plant.

Its looks like the MEP out shone the more expensive forklift attachment on this occasion.
