Electrical vehicle moves waste at Princess of Wales Hospital
By Peter Driver
The Cushman 340 tug, which is produced by Ransomes Jacobsen Ltd, the Ipswich-based manufacturer of electric vehicles has been supplied to the Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust by Birds Vehicle Solutions of Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan.
Hotel Services' Nigel Radcliffe commented,
"Initially we were going to fit a cab to our existing ageing vehicle, but after discussions with Birds it became apparent that a better solution would be a new, modern machine with integral cab. For obvious health and safety reasons our staff are required to move clinical and other waste at all times, irrespective of the weather, so a cab ensures that they can operate effectively.
"We selected Bird's Vehicle Solutions as our preferred supplier because they were able to provide professional advice, a vehicle that fully meets our needs and they can provide that all important after sales support, quickly and efficiently."
Richard Shelley, Territory Sales Manager at Birds added,
"We are delighted to have won this business as it reflects our commitment to sourcing equipment that meets, and often surpasses, clients' expectations. Within our product offering we have vehicles that can fit, or be adapted to fit, most applications."
