Strategic alliance offers solution for cleaning stone floors

Diversey and HTC have created a new strategic alliance to produce an innovative cleaning and maintenance solution for stone and other hard floors.

Known as the Taski Twister, the solution twins Diversey’s range of Taski auto scrubber driers and single disc machines with HTC’s floor pads which contain billions of microscopic diamonds that clean and keep the natural shine and gloss of the floor. This combination will mechanically clean and maintain floors enabling cleaners to provide a consistent high quality appearance for indoor floor surfaces while simultaneously offering cost efficiencies.

Drawing on the fusion of HTC’s deep understanding of diamond pad technology and Diversey’s unique floor care heritage, the Taski Twister solution combines the use of any scrubber drier or single disc machine with specially designed Taski Twister pads. A further benefit of the new solution is that it allows building owners and cleaning contractors to utilise the equipment already on site - eliminating the capital cost of the purchase of new machines and the retraining of cleaning staff.

The range of Taski Twister pads is designed for use on all sizes of scrubber driers - including the Taski Swingo XP stand-on scrubber drier - and is now available from all Diversey’s European businesses.

Also included in the programme are the new Taski Twister HT (high traffic) pads. These are optimised for everyday use in high traffic areas such as airport terminals, railway and underground stations, exhibition centres, supermarkets, department stores and shopping centres. In these types of locations, the Taski Twister HT pads provide even longer, hard-wearing durability for better cost efficiency.

Sergio Pupkin, global facility management vice-president for Diversey, said: "This is a bold new strategic alliance. We see huge potential upside in the stone floor cleaning sector and we believe this collaboration with HTC will make our respective products more attractive to customers as well as substantially improving the quality of the products both companies offer to our respective customers.”

Robert Kreicberg, general manager of HTC Cleaning Technology, said: "The cooperation with Diversey is a major step for HTC. Due to Diversey’s expertise and logistic network, pads are now available in many countries and global operating customers can now source the innovative Twister diamond cleaning technology from one global partner."
