Tennant Australia & New Zealand recently introduced a new equipment
maintenance program to enable customers to get the most out of their cleaning
Tennant’s href=”http://au.tennantco.com/apac-en/parts-service/service-and-maintenance/service-and-maintenance/service-and-maintenance” target=”_blank”>Factory Direct Service offers three service plans:
Ideal for organisations with just one machine
Ideal for organisations with several machines onsite and includes regular
Ideal for intensive users
All three service plans come with the assurance of priority breakdown
response from Tennant’s fleet of trained service technicians equipped with
TennantTrue parts. The best plan for your equipment and company will depend on
what your machine needs and the type of site you operate on.
“Our team consists of 40+ trained technicians and authorised dealers
across Australia and New Zealand to service your machines every day. Our
average response time to enquiries is 24 hours and we usually have a tech on
site within two days,” says Chris Collier, Service Manager AU & NZ.

introduced to the market, the company has already entered into 6,300 planned
What are the benefits of Factory
Customers signing up for Tennant’s Factory Direct Service benefit from: Direct
support from trained specialists; Priority support for repairs; Discounted
parts and labour when needed; Fewer unexpected (expensive) breakdowns; Longer
lasting machines; Greater reliability; Assurance that all parts are fully
functioning; Access to the best quality parts (like TennantTrue parts); Access
to lifetime training to help operators use the machines properly; Predictable
and regular maintenance fees that can be budgeted.
What are the alternatives for
planned maintenance and repairs?
Customers will need to get their machine on to an equipment maintenance
schedule to keep it running properly, maintain the warranty, and detect any
problems before they become big (and expensive).
Customers located outside of the service area can find a
Tennant-authorised service dealer that operates within their region, use a
local equipment maintenance company, find an independent technician, and get in-house
servicing done by employing a person trained in the machine.
However, Tennant’s Factory Direct Servicing minimises downtime on your
machine by reducing the risk of breakdowns.
Most of the machines purchased through Tennant such as IRIS, NanoClean,
and ReadySpace already come with built-in technology that decreases costs and
increases productivity. Customers unable to access Tennant’s Factory Direct
Service will still gain from their Tennant machine’s longevity and smarter
