Renowned German cleaning machine manufacturer appoints Wrennalls as UK agent
The Wrennalls Group, a Lancashire based cleaning consultancy, is celebrating a 'coup' having brokered an exciting import agreement to work exclusively with German based floor cleaning machine manufacturer, Columbus Cleaning Machines. This new operation will trade as Columbus Cleaning Machines and operate as a division of the Wrennalls Group.
Columbus is an integral part of the long established Staehle Group, a family run business with a turnover of more than €75 million. With its head office located in Stuttgart, Columbus has based its success on designing and manufacturing a wide range of automatic scrubbers, single disc machines, wet and dry vacuum cleaners and spray extraction machines for any environment.
Shaun Bradbury, Managing Director, Wrennalls Group, is thrilled to have secured such a dynamic working relationship:
"For the last five years, I have been struggling to source a manufacturer that would provide me with the opportunity to bring something to the UK market that no other carpet and floor cleaning company is offering," he explains. "With an impressive and very high quality product range, not only can Columbus offer its UK based customers exceptional cleaning machines which will address any cleaning requirement across a variety of industries - but together we can deliver those products within a timeframe and at a price that will give us a clear advantage over the competition!
"The technical expertise within the Wrennalls Group adds a further benefit in that full onsite training and technical support will be offered as part of the sales and service package."
Valerie Comandre, Export Manager, Columbus Cleaning Machines explains what makes her product range so attractive in a very crowded and competitive marketplace:
"Here at Columbus, we invest heavily in product development and never stand still," she says. "Our machines are both sustainable and versatile but are most importantly good value for money. Our clients have immense confidence in our products and the Columbus reputation of delivering a superior machine which is also reliable and effective is renowned worldwide.
"I am very pleased to be working alongside the Wrennalls Group. As a family run business it truly appreciates the same brand values of honesty, hard work and responsibility as Columbus."
Close to the customer, close to the market: With this objective in mind, Gustav Staehle developed the first vacuum polishing machine for hard floors in 1926. Today, many decades and many innovative products later, the brand name Columbus stands for a constant determination to satisfy the many varied demands of customers worldwide.
With a comprehensively application-orientated product range of over 60 machines, Columbus is synonymous with efficient cleaning. Legendarily in the field of single disc machines, Columbus has perfectly adapted its innovation strengths to today's requirements. Thus, for example, Columbus mains or battery operated automatic scrubbers score high marks for their compact design, versatility and excellent handling.
Latest examples of the market-oriented automatic scrubbers "Made in Germany" are the extremely agile, hand-guided automatic scrubber RA 43/55 B/BM 40 with or without driving motor, the compact ride-on automatic scrubber ARA 66/80 BM 100 and the newly launched RA 66 BM 60 with its automatic spin-on/spin-off system for brushes and pad holders.
Wrennalls was formed in 1985 with a view to bringing high quality, affordable cleaning services to the public and to businesses throughout the North West and beyond. The company has since moved forward both in terms of its client base and in its use of the latest technology.
Originally offering consumers and commercial clients the best possible carpet, upholstery, hard floor and rug cleaning services, it widened its remit in the last 10 years, taking advantage of the industry knowledge of its director and managers becoming a prominent consultant to some of the UK's leading carpet manufacturers, advising them as to long term carpet and floor care.
Using the latest technologies and techniques afforded by the groundbreaking Dry Fusion Carpet Care System, nowadays the Wrennalls Group provides the highest standard of quality carpet cleaning and maintenance services.
