Hotelcare appoints ICE as new robotic equipment supplier
ICE has been awarded a new 4-year contract with one of the UK's leading housekeeping providers, Hotelcare, to supply over 1,000 robotic vacuum cleaners to a national hotel chain across the UK.
Spanning over 40 different hotels of varying formats, brands and sizes, ICE will be deploying over 1,000 Mini Bot robotic vacuums, 135 IRIS stacks (storage and charging stations for the robots) and over 100 battery-operated handheld vacuum cleaners.
"We are delighted to be supporting and mobilising this contract with Hotelcare,” says Mark Bresnihan, ICE's managing director. “We have jointly invested a huge amount of time and focus in delivering proof-of-concept and return on investment to the ultimate client, and are now very excited to implement the solution and technology.
"The contract will of course be supported by our national service and support teams, delivering remote and virtual support to the teams on site, as well as national engineering infrastructure, for pre-planned service and PA testing.”
Hotelcare managing director, Tony Brooks, says:
"ICE has worked closely with us to provide our customer with a credible and futureproof solution for automated room vacuuming. We are looking forward to delivering positive results not only on this contract, but also to our other key clients over the course of this year.
“Driving these innovative solutions into our new proposals and tenders in the future will aid our future growth plans, and clearly establish Hotelcare as the leading innovator within the housekeeping sector."
