A bespoke electric vehicle for transporting clinical waste
has recently been delivered to the Hotel Services department
at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.
||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
- located at 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
