A Dutch SME is a provider of bar supplies for the hospitality industry. Products are offered to the market via international fairs, by selling to wholesale representatives or directly to end users. One of the main products is a glass cleaning system. The sensor based glass cleaning system is fast and time saving, sustainable, suitable for a large variety of glasses, has a smart dosing system for soap preventing soap to remain on the glasses and is not damaging wrists. Lipstick is easily removed without any problem from both the inside and outside of the glasses. In summary the glass cleaning system has following characteristics: Sustainable, ergonomic and time-saving: One second in the patented glass cleaning systems is equivalent to 50 up and down movements of the hand. Herewith time-savings of 70 to 80 percent can be reached. One wrist movement in stead of 50 movements prevents repetitive strain injury (RSI). A relatively slow start of the counter rotating brushes ensures that the brushes do not wear out quickly. Easy to clean, environmental compatibility and hygiene: The cleaning system itself is easy to clean from both the inside and outside. Instructions are included. To clean the brushes they can be removed by a click system. This will prevent polluted water in the sink. The system is the first system with full automatic integrated Ozone cleaning. By means of adding a small dosage of Ozone to the sink, there will be less beer mucus and bacterial growth will not pollute the brushes quickly. The system is equipped with a water control/injection system. Herewith 70% water savings can be realized. The system uses minimal soap and water in combination with a full automatic start- and stop system. The environmental impact is minimal. The Dutch SME looks for commercial agency agreements with sales representatives in the wholesale of supplies for the hospitality industry. For the wholesaler it is important to have sales capacity, access to desired networks in the hospitality industry and the eagerness to develop these markets in their region. Aftermarket products like the brushes and soap are part of the business. The Dutch SME gives all needed support for a fast market development (documentation, fast logistics, instructions, knowledge).
