Sunbelt Rentals UK and Ireland has announced the launch of its newest business unit - Flooring Solutions.

In setting up the fleet for the new division, Sunbelt selected equipment from leading floor care and surface preparation manufacturers, including Tennant, National Flooring Equipment and Husqvarna.

Sunbelt Rentals is well-placed to support customers across the UK, with an initial order for over 250 machines which will be located over its three specialist depots. The range includes floor cleaning and carpet care machines from Tennant, with walk-behind and ride-on sweepers and scrubber-dryers, plus a robotic machine in the T7AMR.

Tennant's IRIS telematics system is available across the entire fleet, which helps customers make informed decisions, driving better cleaning performance while reducing the cost to clean. Tennant will also become Sunbelt's preferred floor care supplier.

Jonathan Newport, managing director of specialist solutions at Sunbelt Rentals UK and Ireland, expressed his excitement about the launch of the new unit: “I am proud to launch this new offering to our customers and the industry. We’re passionate about providing new routes for customers to access the specialist products and solutions they need, with the most flexible rental options ensuring a reliable alternative to the traditional ownership model.

"We have carefully chosen industry-leading manufacturers to guarantee our customers receive the most reliable and advanced solutions available. Our dedicated team have undertaken extensive training to ensure we’re best placed to support our customers with all aspects of their floor care and maintenance tasks.

"Our commitment to innovation, quality and excellent service has been fundamental in the development of our new offering to not only meet our customers’ needs but surpass their expectations," he explained.
