“Innovations will help shape the way cleaning operations and functions are carried out in the


future, but in a collaborative and cohesive way.”


Q&A with ICE


We hear from ICE’s Managing Director, Mark Bresnihan, about the company’s move into Co-Botics, and the Coronavirus effect.


How has the current crisis affected the ICE business, and what steps have you taken to support the market needs during this time?


Like many businesses, as the situation started to intensify throughout March it was clear that our sales pipeline and business plan for 2020 was going to be materially affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. ICE has always operated a very agile and flexible business model – it’s one of our strongest USP’s – so we immediately set out developing a range of equipment to support with sanitisation and infection control to aid customers in the fight against the virus.


We believe that the hygiene anxiety created from COVID-19 will certainly impact the way in which we clean in the future. To support this change, we recently launched ‘A Clean Start’ – an offer with a variety of products to help combat the virus, but also to measure ‘clean’ in ways such ATP testing.


Our teams have worked tirelessly to bring this to life in a very short space of time and have supported many NHS contracts and facilities as well as our long-standing FM and Contract Cleaning customers, something I am extremely proud of.


I think it’s also really important to recognise the efforts of cleaning staff across the UK who have been working through this period on the front line to combat the virus, they are for sure unsung heroes to our nation in my view.


Can you tell us about developments within ICE that are going to support the new norm, changing measures and ways of working going forward?

Aside from our successful ‘A Clean Start’ program, we have just launched our highly anticipated Co-Botics line – the industry’s first comprehensive range of autonomous cleaning machines. We believe these innovations will help shape the way cleaning operations and functions are carried out in the future, but in a collaborative and cohesive way. We have to think differently, and we have to change; if nothing changes then, simply put, nothing changes…


Our Co-Botics equipment has been designed to integrate into cleaning team operations, picking up the manual and repetitive tasks, which will then allow operators to focus on hygiene and sanitising activities to promote cleaner and safer environments. It’s not about replacing people, it’s about embracing technology to deliver higher cleaning standards, infection control and ‘proof of clean’.


Co-Botics is a very natural and progressive way of how we can help support and deliver these measures and improve wellbeing for hygienic environments – to Co-Exist, to Collaborate, and to work Cohesively within the workplace to drive standards, efficiency and sterility.


The system is as close to human activity as anything available. It is extremely intelligent and can be fully operated, controlled, and managed by the teams on site. The SMART features ensure the delivery of the following key requirements when using autonomous equipment in day to day cleaning activities:


• Safety and efficiency – safe, consistent, and easy to map and control.
