Global scrubber dryer heavyweight looks to clean up in SA

Home Business Management Cleaning & Shutdown Global scrubber dryer heavyweight looks to clean up in SA

I-TEAM Global, currently represented in 72 countries, now aims to clean up in the South African commercial and industrial market.

The company develops and designs high-end cleaning machines, products and utilities – ranging from scrubber dryers, vacuum cleaners and gum removers, to lighting solutions, microfibre pads and all-in-one cleaning islands.

“We can assist in all market sectors with our unique 4D REAL (Reduce Expenses And Liabilities) Clean approach,” said Henry Posthumus, Ambassador i-team South Africa.

In terms of product offering, the company’s main focus in South Africa is its flagship scrubber dryer, i-mop. This relatively compact machine solves problems of floor cleaning systems by combining the flexibility of a floor mop with the power and speed of industrial scrubber driers. The i-mop family comprises three models – the i-mop Lite, the i-mop XL and the i-mop XXL.

According to Posthumus it cleans up to 70% faster than conventional wet mopping and is easy to use in small areas that don’t need an auto scrubber. “The i-mop and its ability to get right to the edge and under obstacles means a virtual elimination of manual operations that are required to supplement conventional machine scrubbing.”

To achieve its target to take 30% of the South African scrubber dryer market in the next three years with its i-mop, i-team South Africa has partnered with two leading players in the South African cleaning industry as its distributors.

“In Goscor Cleaning Equipment and ITS, we have two major role players in the cleaning industry as our main distributor partners. The two companies will service the whole country, while i-team SA will focus on niche markets in South Africa,” said Posthumus.
