  • 19/07/2017 09:38AM CWC invests in new GPS technology Complete Weed Control, the UK’s largest weed control contractor, has significantly invested in cutting edge technology.  In an ever-changing industry with many legislation changes, Complete Weed Control has successfully managed to spearhead the weed control sector. This success can be attributed to its commitment of providing a service of the highest calibre and in doing so, the company has continuously embraced emerging technologies to stay at the forefront of the industry. Complete Weed Control introduced  Weed-IT – a weed control application technology – which was cited as a "major advance in the field of weed control" in 1997, and the company is always looking to implement new technologies to improve operations. In reaffirming this trend, the company has recently introduced GPS (Global Positioning System) technology into its spraying procedures. The technology allows the operator to map all of the perimeters of the site they are working on so that the sprayer automatically switches on and off to only treat the designated areas. To avoid wasteful over-spraying, if a specific area has already been treated then the respective nozzles are automatically switched off. If on the other hand, an area may have been inadvertently missed, the operator will be alerted and can then act to ensure complete coverage. The new technology has been a revelation according to Chris Phillips, the CWC franchisee operating in south and central Wales, who uses a Jacobsen SprayTek XP sprayer which features a GPS mapping system. “It has definitely improved operations and has made us more efficient. Applications have improved ten-fold - it has made spraying more accurate and it is more economical with less chemical usage. “We’ve been using this technology at some incredibly high profile venues and they have commented that they have seen more consistent coverage and have been delighted with the results.” Chris, who predominately uses the new technology on golf courses, believes that it has not only improved the quality of operations but has also increased the speed of his work. “On each job we are able to map out all of the course's greens, fairways and tees, in which we pin-point all of the affected areas. It has significantly reduced the amount of time you are on the golf course – because essentially you only spray the targeted areas. You simply programme it into the machine and it only sprays what you tell it to – it is faster and more precise.” While the new technology has been successful for Chris on golf courses, Ian Adamson - the CWC franchisee for Tyne and Wear, has also reported excellent results from applying it to roads and highways. “The versatility of it is great and you can use it on a number of large areas. I could be using it on a golf course but then you can also put road wheels onto it and use it as a highway sprayer. “This is my first season of using it and I have noticed that it is significantly easier to use and has improved efficiency. On the highways, our main customer was wanting to move to night work and work at higher speeds - and this machine has enabled us to do this. I can now work at speeds of up to 45km per hour if required.” With the Complete Group offering a comprehensive suite of services on a national scale, it is vital that the company continues to adapt to new technology – according to Chris. “Investing in new technology is so important to us – if you are not going forward then you are going backwards and the only way to go forward is to keep up to date with the latest chemicals and invest in the best state-of-the-art equipment.” Read More
  • 14/02/2017 09:54AM New Complete Weed Control team for East Midlands Complete Weed Control, the UK’s largest weed control contractor, has announced Conor Flynn as its newest franchisee to operate in the East Midlands. Conor is the latest to join Complete Weed Control and after working with cars for the majority of his working career, he decided that it was time for a change of direction. When the opportunity arose to join Complete Weed Control he decided to learn more about the company, which ultimately played a major factor in his decision to alter his career path. “I’ve worked with cars all my life, whether it is sales, events or driving around a track. Cars are my passion but when the chance arose to join Complete Weed Control I think the opportunity was just too good to ignore. “I met with managing director Ian Graham, to find out more on the company and learn about what would be involved in the daily running of the business – and that made my mind up.” Conor spent a year learning the business inside out by working under David Cocks, who had been in charge of the East Midlands area since 2000. Having recently just taken over the full day-to-day running of the business, Conor feels he is now ready to push on and grow the business. “I’ve got some great clients and work at some fabulous places, which includes golf courses and sports clubs and I’m really enjoying it so far. My plan is to keep growing and building on the relationships that David has built up over the past 16 years.” Since its beginnings in 1972, Complete Weed Control has gone from strength to strength and has built a reputation as the most professional and relied upon weed control contractor in the UK. The CWC group has been complimented by its hugely successful business model. Every inch of the UK is now occupied by a Complete Weed Control operative and also has a growing presence in Ireland. “It’s an incredibly progressive and forward thinking company, says Conor. “Head office is always on hand to provide you with support and everyone has a high ambition which is a great motivation. “I’m really looking forward to the road ahead with Complete Weed Control. It is great to be a part of this company.” For more information, please contact Complete Weed Control’s national office on 01325 324 277. Read More
