Go, Go, Go for Open Golf Championship

The UK’s leading provider of specialist operated and self-drive hire vehicles and sweepers has played its part in the ongoing maintenance at one of the most highly-anticipated sporting events of the year.

Go Plant Limited is celebrating a successful partnership with The Assist Group, which saw them take on responsibility for the ongoing maintenance and cleaning of the grounds at Hoylake and the wider Wirral Borough in Merseyside as part of The Open Golf Championship.

Five staff from Go Plant were on hand from Sunday 13th until Sunday 20th July, working in shifts between 4am until 10:30pm to ensure an aesthetically-pleasing environment during the prestigious national event. Four of Go Plant’s 13 Tonne Truck Mounted Sweepers – including three brand new Johnston vehicles – plus one 3.5 tonne Swingo pedestrian sweepers were in operation during the week, sweeping confined areas and spaces as well as direct use on hard surfaces such as paths and walkways.

Shaun Wilson, Manager of Go Plant’s North West Service Centre, explained: “The event was a huge success and we’re thrilled to have partnered up with the Assist team. We undertook thorough cleaning of not just the Hoylake venue – the second-oldest seaside links golf course in England – but also the wider Wirral area. I’m incredibly proud of my team for the dedication and hard work over the course of the week and look forward to working on projects of equal calibre in the months and years to come.”

James McGrady of Assist Group added: “Playing a part in such a well-respected event such as the Open Championship is a real achievement and we’re really pleased with the feedback we received from those involved, attending and watching. Around 30 members of staff from Assist were responsible for in-depth street cleansing and maintenance of areas of heavy foot traffic, litter collection, as well as washing of furniture.  It was a fantastic event, and we’re looking forward to working with the Go Plant team in the future.”
