Crown Equipment has added Conquest industrial cleaning machinery to its product range – the company has installed its first PB120D sweeper at BBS Timbers in Whangarei

Crown and Conquest partner to clean up New Zealand’s warehouses

Crown Equipment has joined forces with industrial cleaning machinery supplier Conquest Equipment Technologies to expand its equipment range.

The partnership means Crown can now supply heavy-duty cleaning equipment along with racking, shelving and other infrastructure that is part and parcel of a complete warehouse fitout.

Kieran White, Crown Equipment’s managing director, says the partnership with Conquest was born from a combination of customer feedback and the company’s focus on increasing its capability as a ‘one-stop shop’ for warehouse solutions.
For Crown customers, it means dealing with one salesperson rather than numerous companies for warehousing needs

“The idea of getting involved with a commercial cleaning equipment supplier came about because Crown sales staff were frequently being asked if we could supply industrial sweepers and other types of cleaning equipment,” Mr White says. “We looked at a number of industrial cleaning equipment suppliers, and we chose to work with a reputable, family-run company with countrywide support. Conquest is a natural fit for New Zealand’s number-one electric lift truck company.”

Wide range of products

Through Conquest, Crown can now supply New Zealand with a wide range of commercial cleaning products, with floor sweepers, floor scrubbers and street sweepers for industrial, retail, corporate and healthcare applications. The comprehensive range includes walk-behind and ride-on sweepers and floor scrubbers, as well as a range of street sweepers and commercial floor-stripping machines.

Mr White says Conquest shares similar business values with Crown, such as focusing on the customer. “Crown and Conquest are utilising similar synergies – our customers are the same as their customers when it comes to us meeting their needs and finding solutions.”

He says the partnership is a complementary business model that will position well with Crown and perfectly benefit customers. “For our customers it means dealing with one salesperson rather than numerous companies for warehousing needs – and that has to make things easier.”

The right solution

Conquest Equipment Technologies’ managing director Michael Mathews says Conquest always finishes with the right solution, and believes the Crown alliance is 100% the right solution.

“We’ve been dealing with Crown for a number of years now and we’re excited to work with a market leader with a good reputation. Like us, customer service and support is always Crown’s number-one priority,” Mr Mathews says.
In global terms, Conquest is a successful business that has been operating for more than 40 years competing against big international companies.
