Who we are

Clean work areas. Our cleaning machines for industry.

Made in Germany. In plain English:
reliable machines, reliable service.

Professional cleaning machines for professional use. This is the ideal that we have pursued with the columbus brand for some 80 years. An ideal with which we have established ourselves as a solid, reliable player in the market. With many years of experience, with a sensibly structured product range established according to our customers' requirements. Cleaning machines for maintaining small, medium and large surfaces, for inside and outside, for ongoing upkeep and occasional basic cleaning.

Product range
When different floors need to be so clean that sound and safe work areas are guaranteed, the appropriate tools are needed: machines for all forms of industrial use which clean efficiently day in, day out. Robustly built, easy to use, with functional accessories. Developed using German engineering and know-how, equipped with practically tested technology. Scrubber dryers with tank volumes of between 10 and 150 litres, sweepers with working widths of between 47 and 130 cm, rotary disc machines between 140 and 1600 rpm, (dust filter) vacuum cleaners between 5 and 12 litres, wet and dry vacuum cleaners between 30 and 76 litres. Not forgetting, of course, carpet cleaning machines for small or large areas.

Our values

Less of everything, better for everyone: this is the approach that we take to this topic. Less of an impact on the environment thanks to columbus' integrated chemical dosing, lower consumption of materials thanks to economical, space-saving design, lower energy consumption thanks to smooth-running gearboxes, less waste thanks to recyclable tanks and components, lower water use thanks to extremely dense brushes – these are just a few of the areas where we do our part in protecting the environment and give our motto of CLEAN IS QUALITY extra meaning.

Well-trained, experienced staff members whose proximity to customers is defined not in kilometres but rather in direct, personal contact over the years: this is – for us and for our customers – the key to success. Employees for whom it is about more than just selling machines: our range of services stretches from analysing requirements to calculating cost-effectiveness and recommending suitable machines to demonstration of the models. Our service package includes staff orientation and training, as well as maintenance and repair along with the provision of replacement machines. In addition, we work out suitable financing, leasing and hire purchase proposals, as well as individual service contracts. We offer this full range of services nationwide in Germany with a closely-knit sales and service network. And, if there is ever any need, our technical support service is at your disposal on the Blue Help Line on 0049 711 9544-958.
