About Our Products
Value versus price
Broomsfast products are competitively priced, however our focus is not on being the cheapest supplier of Brooms. In our 30 odd years of business we have learned that a cheap priced product often actually costs more money in the long run! Therefore our product focus is based on providing the very best value for money.
We are confident we are on the right track as occasionally we lose a customer to a Cheap price, but they return with a familiar story; One such example was with a Mulch Trommel Screen Broom set supplied to Phoenix Power Recyclers where Ian Davis said :
“We’ve been away for a while, we were approached by another supplier and we had to try their brooms as they were cheaper and we were told they were as good as yours—-but they are not! We only got half the life out them and replacing them is a pain! So we’re back”
Based on our experiences we will continue to focus on quality rather than price and supply the best value brooms, brushes and accessories available. Best value is a product that is fit for purpose and;
1. Increases process efficiency.
2. Reduces maintenance and or downtime.
“To ensure we continue to supply excellent value for money products we rely on feedback from our customers”
Feedback is often a result of us pro-actively working with our customers to come up with a new product or to improve an existing one. However, occasionally our customers alert us to another product that they feel, in one way or another is better than ours. As our regular customers know what they want in a broom when they talk, we listen! We use this feedback to work with our manufacturing partners to develop even better products for our customers.
“No matter the price of a product or accessory we still focus on Quality”
With our products ranging from brooms costing thousands of dollars to accessories that cost as little as $5 we pride ourselves in doing our best to ensure every item we sell is of a premium quality.
Premium quality road brooms require top quality Polypropylene (Poly) for good, hard wearing performance. Our manufacturing partner “Thompson Brushes” have invested over 40 years into developing industry best poly. Our Road broom segments have more poly fill than any other on the market; in fact the amount of poly bristle in our segments exceeds “industry standard ” by more than 30% and more bristle means better sweeping.
Research & development
Our manufacturing partners Thompson Brushes have an ongoing commitment to Research & Development. As an example – they have developed polypropylene (poly) that is now used in other fields such as; Australian Armed Forces where it’s used for cleaning grenade launchers, a variety of food processing plants and in Mining and Civil Construction where the poly is used as fibre reinforcement to strengthen the concrete in mineshafts, pit walls and tunnels.
This Research and development into poly technology in other industries brings with it ongoing improvements in strength and durability to our broom-stocks. In 2013 these improvements were incorporated into the Side Brooms we supply to the Brisbane City Council for their Macdonald Johnson Sweepers, where real world testing has shown a 20% increase in their working life.
