Tennant wins contract with Walmart to supply robotic floor cleaners
In the US, floor cleaning machine producer Tennant has won a contract with major retailer Walmart to supply its autonomous floor cleaning machine the T7AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) equipped with Brain Corp's self-driving operating system BrainOS reports European Cleaning Journal.
"We are proud to partner with Walmart, the first major global retailer to introduce autonomous cleaning robots to deliver operational efficiency, cleaning performance and customer value on a broad scale across a retail platform," said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's President and Chief Executive Officer.
John Crecelius, Walmart Senior VP of Central Operations commented, "This cleaner is another great example of technology helping make the Walmart job better. Rather than riding on a floor cleaning machine for several hours, the associate is now working with robotics to complete their duties. The machine allows our associates more time to focus on completing other tasks within the role but most importantly it frees them up to serve our customers better."
