Vikan worked with Olives Et Al to instigate a four-week site trial based around the Vikan Slimliner Trolley and pre-prepared mops and cloths. The trolley is ideal for manoeuvring alongside conveyors and around machinery in a food-processing environment. They also ensure tools are readily available to hand for staff, meaning less time is wasted finding equipment.
Vikan tailored a version of the trolley to Olive Et Al's particular needs by adding an additional mop box, adjustable mop handles, pocket mop frame, mop release and Deep Clean pocket mops. Vikan also provided onsite training on the new system for all staff.
Both Vikan and Olives Et Al for a four-week trial period. The onsite Assistant Technical Manager proved to be an open-minded and forward-thinking individual and, although this was a small site, this allowed the trial to really highlight the benefits of Vikan's tools and processes.
Olives Et Al were delighted with the results of the trails. The company has now eliminated the use of Kentucky mopping and manual handling of dirty mops in the main production area and hope to extend this throughout the company.
