Originally designed for the plant and equipment market as a dust suppression power-house, the Suppressor COVID-19 Destroyer has launched for hire and sale to businesses supporting COVID-19 impact cleaning projects.
Responding to a unique business opportunity created by COVID 19, and mirroring examples of trucks used in Wuhan, and now Russia, during containment effort in these countries, we have enhanced our manufacturing capacity to produce these trucks quickly, for fast-tracked delivery into the Australian market.
Our manufacturing capacity will continue to support the combined 500 water trucks, vacuum excavators, tilt tray trucks, diesel and service trucks already ordered this year– but will also be expanded to fast-track the production vehicles capable of spraying disinfectant, bleach or other biohazard suppressants across external surfaces and large expanses.
Similar trucks to STG’s proprietary ‘Suppressor Truck’, which is ready for deployment in Victoria and is now available for hire or purchase, were used in Wuhan province, and again in Russia, during the early stages of the Coronavirus containment effort, where sanitation workers dispatched trucks spraying low concentration bleach-and-water solution and other disinfectants onto the streets. This was to reduce the virus’s survivability on surfaces – as an example of one tactic local governments employed to slow the spread of the virus.
The Suppressor Truck is the only Australian-made truck capable of deploying disinfectants over a large outdoor expanse – as one effective measure of containing an outbreak of COVID-19 in a particular suburb, town or outdoor area. Going forward, The Suppressor Truck could be used in containment efforts where an outbreak occurs in a condensed geographic area, as the Australian government seeks to supress a clustered outbreak in a town or suburb, while we wait for a vaccine.
STG Global’s CEO Ross Yendle: “Obviously, once coronavirus hit our shores in Australia, we were all concerned about the economic and safety impacts to our local community. We knew a lot of our existing customers would be keen to purchase a truck that could be used in the containment effort – as a way of diversifying their service offering to meet the needs of the market. We anticipated high demand, so we sped up the plans and the build through so we could take something to market as quickly as possible.'
Local Councils and commercial clients have been contacting us about how quickly they can purchase or hire the trucks. “We’ve been slammed with enquiries. There is a lot of demand out there. Some of our clients who usually buy our trucks to hire out to construction projects are now asking about the Suppressor Truck to add to their fleet, so they can contribute to the COVID-19 suppression efforts in their local communities as well. We’re excited about its potential,” says Ross.
If you are an enterprising plant and equipment provider who wants to support the fight against COVID-19 and diversify your services to meet the demands of this new ‘normal’ – then we would like to hear from you.
