WashTec system is car wash system of the year
Every year, the German trade magazine ‘tankstelle’ selects the “Gas Station of the Year” and also awards washing facilities. This year, this honor in the wash portal category went to the bft gas station Wildetaube in Langenwetzendorf, which, after several generations of washing technology, has been successfully operating a Smart Care from WashTec since 2020. WashTec AG works very closely with this customer and so a very close customer relationship has developed between operator and manufacturer in recent years.
CarwashPro spoke to WashTec about this special gas station. The wash portal is operated at a bft petrol station in Langenwetzendorf in a rural area. It is characterized by a particularly customer-oriented car wash business and is very successful with over 7,200 car washes per year.
CarwashPro.de: How does WashTec work together with the Wildetaube petrol station?
WashTec AG: We maintain intensive cooperation between the Prandi family and the responsible field staff, but also with the internal staff of our company in order to fuel the washing business at the petrol station.
CarwashPro.de: Which washing technology from your company is in use there?
WashTec AG: A SmartCare system has been in use at the Langenwetzendorf site since August 2020, making it our best product in the area of gantry washing systems. Together with the use of the customer wash app EasyCarWash for flat-rate washes and the wash chemical products of the premium product line TecsLine from AUWA, the operators invest heavily in the quality of the car wash. The drive-in concept, in which the car wash customer can stay in a gantry car wash in the vehicle, is another outstanding feature of this system. In short: more and better is not possible.
CarwashPro.de: What is your reaction to your customer being named gas station of the year?
WashTec AG: We are very pleased that we have been able to win the petrol station of the year title with our washing technology for the second time in a row and thus give our customers suggestions to expand and focus their washing business.
CarwashPro.de: Wildetaube was also explicitly recognized for its good marketing. To what extent do you support your customers in this area too?
WashTec AG: The SmartCare system is the best that is available on the market today – this is also evident at this location, which relies on a premium range and is therefore very successful. Our customer uses and evaluates our marketing materials and templates online and offline and has adapted them individually to his location.
