Hako Infotage

Info Days at the Municipal Depot in Tuttlingen:
Tireless Commitment for a High Quality of Life in the City

Hako subsidiary Stuttgart takes an active part in the “European Cleaning Days 2015” campaign!

The staff working at municipal depots works in shifts nearly around the clock to sweep paths and squares, mow public green areas and clear the roads from ice and snow early in the morning. In order to honour their work and to give visitors an insight of their various tasks, Hako’s Stuttgart subsidiary actively participated in the info days that took place on 11th and 12th June 2015 at the municipal depot in Tuttlingen by exhibiting their municipal technology products.  
The employees working at municipal depots do a great job. Their work plays an essential part in promoting the common good. We gladly participate in the campaign to help strengthen the image of municipal companies“, says Peter Partenheimer, Key Account Manager for the Southern Region at Hako GmbH.


Exhibiting the vehicles Multicar M31, Citymaster 600 and Citymaster 1250, Hako presented a cross-section of their comprehensive range of municipal technology products.

In addition to giving an insight into their work and the opportunity for an active exchange between the municipal depots, the info days offered more than 2,000 visitors the opportunity to experience a wide range of technology ‘hands-on’. Hako presented a cross-section of their municipal technology product programme including the Multicar TREMO and the Citymaster 2000 – two vehicles that have been used successfully in Tuttlingen for many years – plus the multifunctional implement carriers Citymaster 600 and 1250 with articulated steering and the professional multifunctional implement carrier & transporter Multicar M31. 


Several student groups visited the Hako stand to gather information on the various tasks carried out at the municipal depot and the technology required.

The various tasks and required standards place high demands on the cities and municipalities, also with regard to technical equipment. We provide advice and support the municipalities with our municipal technology so that they can carry out their tasks in a reliable and economically efficient manner“, states Partenheimer. In addition, the info days offered young people the opportunity to look at different job possibilities and get some ideas for the future.   


Two very busy days: Around 2,000 visitors attended the event.  

Hako’s dedicated commitment is part of the “European Cleaning Days (ECD) 2015‘ campaign. The ECD campaign has been initiated by the European Association of the Manufacturers of Cleaning Machines, EUnited Cleaning, in cooperation with the European Cleaning Industry Federation (EFCI) and the International Association for Washing & Cleaning Agents (AISE) and their respective members to promote the image and the social acceptance of the cleaning industry and the people working in the cleaning business.


In Germany, 50,000 employees of municipal companies work every day to keep squares, footpaths and roads clean with brooms and sweepers. In the winter, they operate more than 4,000 snowploughs and gritting vehicles to ensure maximum road safety, according to the German Association of Municipal Companies (VKU9).

Various events will be taking place within the framework of the ECD campaign for people of different ages and professions between May and November 2015. Those involved, for example, will be visiting schools to educate pupils on the subject of cleaning, open house days will be taking place at companies engaged in the cleaning industry as well as exhibitions and “Hands-on Cleaning“ campaigns in public places. “Clean and well-maintained residential areas, high streets and public parks define our quality of life and characterise the image of a city. That is why Hako is happy to support the European Cleaning Days’ idea of promoting the services of contract cleaners and bringing their commitment to the attention of the general public“, says Peter Partenheimer.
