Tax breaks offered with water saving scrubber dryer can compare to 28% 'cashback'!
As well as doing a great job and helping to conserve water, Taymec's Floormec Commander Eco scrubber dryer is something of a bargain, in as much as it offers the possibility of what could be considered a 28% cashback.
Why? The machine is included in the Water Technologies List set up by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and HM Revenue & Customs, and is thus part of a scheme devised to reward companies when they invest in products that reduce water use.
"Water efficiency is a key issue for all businesses - as is the need to keep an eye on budgets," explains the company's Mike Taylor. "Our Eco technology offers both short and long-term financial benefits. Companies investing in the technology are able to set the whole cost of the purchase against taxable profits in the year of purchase; this can mean a saving of up to 28% of the cost of the machine.
"Only machines that have qualified to be a waste efficient product, qualify for the initiative. Look out for the WTL symbol when procuring new equipment. This shows that a product has been independently assessed and qualified and is part of the scheme."
Taymec's Floormec scrubber dryers are designed and built in the UK, by engineers that have worked in the cleaning industry for nearly 25 years. All Floormec machines have stainless steel bodies and tanks, while foodgrade rubber is used on components to help keep the machines free from bacteria.
The Commander Eco is available with either a 26 or a 32 inch cleaning path. The machines have a working width of 650 and 820mm and offer a productivity of 3,000 and 3,600sq.m/hr respectively. Both are battery powered and they have 100 litre solution tanks and 105 litre recovery tanks and a brush speed of 200rpm.
"We are currently looking to establish specialist distributors in the UK," says Mike.
