Robot wins European cleaning award
21 October 2016
Industrial Cleaning Equipment has won a 2016 European Cleaning and Hygiene Award.
Its Robo 2 fully autonomous cleaning machine won the ‘Groundbreaking Technological Innovation of the Year’ category, beating stiff competition from other innovations.
ICE CEO Mark Bresnihan said: "We are extremely pleased that our machine continues to be recognised for the true innovation and differentiation it delivers to the market. Whilst robotic technology is still in its infancy within cleaning, we are seeing huge interest and pace in clients embracing the technology, together with a different approach and methodology to those traditional cleaning tasks and processes.
"We are very confident in our product and its capability, none of which of course is deliverable without the right product support, service infrastructure and package to back it up. This is the second innovation award we have received this year, which tells us the market recognises and respects the innovation we are bringing to the fore and that it does deliver value.”
ICE have been at the forefront of developing robotic cleaning machines for the past 7 years. Officially launched in May 2016, the Robo 2 cleans complex areas, thanks to its laser and sensor technology. It offers unlimited cleaning patterns and consistent cleaning right up to the edge.
The Robo 2 is suitable for a wide range of environments including hospitals and healthcare facilities; schools, colleges and universities; food and high street retail stores; airports and train stations; and warehouse and manufacturing facilities.
