Challenge

Transport managers need their vehicles to be clean to protect the brand image shown on the side of their trucks, while commercial drivers have a sense of pride for the vehicle they are driving and living in for most of the week.

EKV was in search of a cleaning solution that ensures its’ vehicles are cleaned effectively and promptly, deliver high levels of internal hygiene and maintain excellent working conditions for its employees. In particular, EKV was seeking a supplier of suitable durable products that would ensure effective exterior cleaning without damaging paintwork, livery, signage or other coatings.

Solution

EKV chose Vikan's transport range of cost-effective, durable and easy-to-store products, designed specifically for the heavy demands of the commercial sector and for use on vehicles of all sizes.

The solution includes solid polypropylene stocks, with nylon filaments and protective rubber edges that prevent any damage to paintwork, and water-fed wash brushes, with telescopic handles and a choice of adjustable brush heads for hard to reach areas. The rim brush is used to remove stubborn dirt from wheel rims safely and effectively, while Vikan's stiff brushes and microfibre-based cloths remove interior dust and grime from around the controls and in the living area.

EKV also selected Vikan for its customer-oriented approach to product development. Working closely with EKV, Vikan has created a specifically angled high/low brush (Item no. 526852), designed to be in constant contact with surfaces during washing.
