Vax Commercial has won a two-year contract to supply Travelodge with its VCC-08 tub vacuum cleaner. After an eight-week tender process, which saw the VCC-08 put through its paces at Travelodge's head office in Thame and its hotels in Swansea and Swanleigh, the UK designed product came out the clear winner.
Travelodge has recently announced a £223 million brand investment to further grow its business, with £57 million of that going into a brand new room concept. To ensure this new product offering makes Travelodge the smart choice for hotels, keeping rooms clean and fresh is of paramount importance. As such, selecting a vacuum cleaner that delivers high performance, a robust and durable design, along with dedicated after care support was critical.
Debbie Husband, operations director at Travelodge, said: “We have just made a significant investment in our brand to grow the business, strengthen our product offering and make Travelodge the best value hotel chain for customers. A crucial way of delivering value is through having the highest standards of cleanliness throughout our hotels. Vax Commercial helps us to do this and we are confident that they will play a key role in helping us deliver a great experience for every customer that stays with us.”
Part of TTi, one of the largest global floorcare manufacturers, Vax Commercial has access to 24-hour product development and global engineering resources, which enables the brand to offer products which meet the needs of commercial users.
Launched in 2012, the VCC-08 vacuum cleaner - which was designed in the UK by Vax's British design team - is part of a range of commercial floorcare products from Vax Commercial. The VCC-08 is a powerful tub vacuum that was designed for professional cleaning, with its twin speed 1400W commercial grade motor, producing 300 air watts of suction power for quick and effective cleaning performance on all surfaces.
Arran Barclay, director, Vax Commercial UK, said: “We are delighted to have won this contract with such a highly regarded hotel company as Travelodge. It is a fantastic achievement and is testament to the strength of our commercial cleaning products and our after service package. We have an extensive road map of new commercial products that will be launching over the next two years, and we are excited about the future of Vax Commercial.”
