As times are ever changing, Bolidt believes it is essential to keep up with the new demands and explore new ways to help industries and society with its services. As current times are presenting themselves for a greater need of sanitation and hygienic standards, Bolidt has you covered!
In recent years, Bolidt has focused increasingly on the theme of hygiene. It is central to its own business operations, but also to the development of synthetic applications. Years of innovation have resulted in floors, decking (and walls) that combat multi-resistant bacteria outbreaks and that have hygienic properties – being seamless, antimicrobial, easy to clean, just to name a few of their qualities.
One of the innovations for the maritime industry is the Bolidt Eco Surface Cleaner, a probiotic based environmentally and user friendly surface cleaner that can help to mitigate challenges being faced today when it comes to cleaning and sanitation practices. The probiotics in the cleaner break down the contamination and dirt accumulated on the surfaces and this process even continues when the “dirty” water is discharged.
The Bolidt Eco Surface Cleaner also requires half of the ratios required from other cleaners. This translates to not only less product needed but also requires less storage space and less packaging materials and volume of product less freight, all adding to the reduction in environmental impact. Best of all this cleaning solution is non-hazardous to personnel using this to clean therefore creating safe working conditions and environment for all.
Bolidt has been working hand in hand with Royal Caribbean Risk management team to introduce the Bolidt Eco Surface Cleaner and successfully create the newly developed cleaning program customized to each class of vessel, which is now currently in place for all 26 RCI ships. As well as introducing the Bolidt Eco Surface Cleaner to various companies in the maritime industry such as Carnival Cruise Lines, Norwegian, Holland America, MSC and many more.
This all-encompassing program includes an initial visit and introduction from Bolidt’s Project Manager Hilco Knol, who has 20+ years of experience in this field where he will observe and analyze the cleaning and sanitization practices being carried out. Further to the results found we will develop an effective and customized cleaning and maintenance program to follow with clear instructions, 24/7 support with online demonstration videos and manuals for the future and long run success. In addition Bolidt conducts follow up and bench mark visits to ensure that the standardized procedures are properly practiced and if any new finding / adjustments need to be made.
Because Bolidt controls the entire value chain, it is not dependent on third parties for the execution of work. Of course, Bolidt is affected by the restrictions imposed on travel abroad and the measures taken in different countries during this period. The development and production of the decking systems take place in-house. Bolidt’s application teams are able to carry out projects quickly and flexibly, taking into account the applicable health guidelines. Thanks to their years of experience, these specialists know what it takes to install a hygienic deck. Bolidt can completely unburden clients, for example by drawing up a workable LEAN plan.
Finally, the company’s selected business strategy also helps to ensure good hygiene. When it was founded, Bolidt consciously chose to keep the entire value chain in its own hands: from purchasing, R&D and production to sales, application and logistics. It appears – even during the coronavirus crisis – that this provides the company with more control over its operations. For example, it provides intensive contact with employees every day during daily meetings. As a result, the transfer of information is optimal and all health guidelines are implemented very effectively. For example, its own application teams strictly adhere to all regulations set by the government. All in all, this strategy ensures that the health risks for its own employees, but also for other parties on the construction site, are minimized. Bolidt's in-house SHEQ department also ensures that work is carried out in a safe manner, not only on location, but also, for example, in its own production facilities.Ask a question
