Columbus appoints UK agent

The Wrennalls Group, a Lancashire-based cleaning consultancy, is celebrating a ‘coup’ having brokered an import agreement to work exclusively with German floor cleaning machine manufacturer, Columbus Cleaning Machines. This new operation will trade as Columbus Cleaning Machines Ltd and operate as a division of the Wrennalls Group.

Columbus is an integral part of the long established Staehle Group, a family run business with a turnover in excess of € 75 million. With its head office located in Stuttgart, Columbus has based its success on designing and manufacturing a wide range of automatic scrubbers, single disc machines, wet and dry vacuum cleaners and spray extraction machines for any environment.

Shaun Bradbury, managing director of the Wrennalls Group, said: “For the last five years, I have been struggling to source a manufacturer that would provide me with the opportunity to bring something to the UK market that no other carpet and floor cleaning company is offering.

With an impressive and very high quality product range, not only can Columbus offer its UK based customers exceptional cleaning machines which will address any cleaning requirement across a variety of industries, but together we can deliver those products within a time frame and at a price that will give us a clear advantage over the
competition. The technical expertise within the Wrennalls Group adds a further benefit in that full onsite training and technical support will be offered as part of the sales and service package. ”

Valerie Comandre, export manager, Columbus Cleaning Machines, said: “Here at Columbus, we invest heavily in product development and never stand still. Our machines are both sustainable and versatile but are most importantly good value for money. Our clients have immense confidence in our products and the Columbus reputation of delivering a superior machine which is also reliable and effective is renowned worldwide. I am very pleased to be working alongside the Wrennalls Group. As a family run business it truly appreciates the same brand values of honesty, hard work and responsibility as Columbus.”
