“We are very pleased to have this new strong partner at our side. With the GVS Group as one of the most successful specialist wholesale groups in the professional cleaning and care industry, we have created the best conditions to look after and expand our customer base even better in both Germany and Austria," explains Steffen Mateja, Head of Sales at Nexaro. “The sale of our innovative cobotic system solution is controlled via a network of specialist wholesalers and sales representatives from the GVS Group. With a total of 14 member companies in Germany and Austria, together with the GVS Group, we can guarantee our customers optimal and, above all, local service from here on.”
Tim Heitmann, Managing Director of GVS-Service GmbH, says: “With Nexaro, we are not only expanding our extensive product range, we are also gaining an important partner in the field of innovative product development. We know that the challenges in the cleaning industry, such as margin pressure, staff shortages and the physical strain on cleaning professionals, are ongoing. By using autonomous cleaning robots in the commercial sector, Nexaro is providing an innovative solution with its cobotic approach. As an experienced trading partner with many years of market experience, we are pleased to support Nexaro as a strategic partner and look forward to a promising collaboration.”
The cobotic approach
Within the holistic Nexaro approach, cobotic stands for real cooperation between humans and the most modern, autonomous robot technology. The decisive factor for this approach is the increase in efficiency and quality while reducing costs at the same time. For cleaning staff, flexible use of the Nexaro NR 1500 provides significant relief in everyday work due to the elimination of the particularly strenuous dry floor cleaning and work in off-peak times – especially at night. This also goes hand in hand with an upgrading cleaning specialists' job description.
Measuring approx. 34 by 34 centimeters, the Nexaro NR 1500 is currently the most compact autonomous robot vacuum cleaner on the market that has been approved for professional building cleaning. It thus ensures cleaning close to the edges, can be integrated into the work environment without any problems as well as offering the greatest possible flexibility – regardless of whether it is used individually or as part of a fleet.
