Awash Systems Corp. joins Trailways Affiliated Partner Program

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Trailways promotes squeaky-clean image with new affiliated partner Awash Systems Corp.

Fairfax, VA – March 29, 2016 – Trailways Transportation System, Inc., has taken a shine to Awash Systems Corporation, welcoming as a new affiliated partner the Ontario-based manufacturer of large-vehicle washing systems and wastewater treatment systems. The company also designs, builds, installs and maintains wash bays.

“With its reputation for efficient, economical and eco-friendly wash systems, Awash Systems can help our Trailways motor carriers to keep their fleets clean and professional looking and to extend the life of their vehicles,” said Diane Walden, Vice President-Sales for Trailways.

Jack Jackson, President of Awash Systems, agreed. “Clean vehicles have a major effect on company image, driver satisfaction, the environment and the bottom line,” he said.

Awash Systems manufactures single-brush wash systems for motorcoaches, school buses, trucks, transit vehicles, tractor-trailers, ambulances, recreational vehicles, vans, limousines, cars and trains.

“Each sector of industry we deal with has unique needs. We make all of our machines in North America, most customized to customers’ requirements,” Jackson explained.

With Awash System’s PowerbrushH2O fleet washing system, a single operator can wash a bus with biodegradable soap in less than five minutes. The system’s ceiling-mounted, festoon design with cable or track rollers saves floor space. Because the brush does most of the cleaning, water consumption per vehicle wash is only 20 gallons, “only half a bathtub of water,” Jackson said. He added that the system “uses only as much electricity per wash cycle as popping two bags of popcorn in a microwave.” PowerbrushH2O saves both time and money vs. the more labor-intensive hand washing. Its soft brushes, made of polyethylene or polyfoam, prevent peeling and damage to vehicle graphics.

“The growing height and window size of motorcoaches makes them increasingly difficult to clean by hand,” Jackson said. “We are proud to be a small part of each customer’s day, ensuring a difficult task can be made easier while also doing our part for the environment.”

For customers ordering wash bays, Awash Systems technicians perform consultations (including analysis of water, labor and utility costs of existing systems), then design, build and install the bays to meet customer criteria. They also maintain the wash bays, including providing preventive maintenance to replace worn parts before they have a chance to fail.

Awash Systems supplies accessories, parts and service as well as training in the use of its wash and wastewater treatment systems.

Founded in 1991 and originally known as ACC International, Inc., the company adopted the name Awash Systems Corporation in 2010. “We are proud that we have some of those original machines from 1991 still working every day,” Jackson said.

Trailways Transportation System, Inc. (Trailways), consists of approximately 65 independently owned and operated motorcoach companies in North America and Europe. Each company adheres to the highest safety standards required by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) or its country’s equivalent. Drivers within the Trailways system operate a wide variety of more than 12,000 passenger transportation vehicles.

Through its Affiliated Partners Program, Trailways maintains a close working relationship with industry-related supplier and vendor companies, as well as other tour and travel service entities, to ensure that its group of motorcoach companies receives the latest and most effective technology, information, services and products needed to maintain superior delivery of safe, comfortable, reliable passenger service. Affiliated Partners are listed on the Trailways portal http://www.teamtrailways.com.

Trailways welcomes affiliated partner Allied Powers, LLC,

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Trailways welcomes affiliated partner Allied Powers, LLC,

distributor of portable pain relief devices

 

Fairfax, VA – March 24, 2016 – Muscle aches and stiffness can happen to motorcoach company employees, whether they work behind the wheel, behind a desk or out in the garage. Providing relief from acute and chronic pain by using portable electrical devices that block pain signals to the brain and stimulate muscle function is the goal of Allied Powers, LLC, a new affiliated partner of Trailways Transportation System, Inc.

Founded by co-owners Joshua J. Greenman and Richard J. Alex, the Las Vegas-based company serves as a distributor of HiDow™ therapeutic products under the aegis of national distributor HiDow USA.

“At Trailways, we’re interested not only in safety on the road but also in the occupational safety and health of everyone who works for our Trailways-affiliated motorcoach companies. Allied Powers offers products that may have the potential to keep the people in Team Trailways working pain-free at their peak performance level,” said Diane Walden, Trailways’ Vice President-Sales.

“We provide the latest technology in portable TENS and EMS devices, including wireless devices. They’re compact, easy to use and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as Class II Medical Devices,” said Greenman. “They’re noninvasive and drug-free means of achieving pain relief that can be used in the comfort of the home or office.”

TENS refers to “transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation” and EMS to “electrical muscle stimulation.” The principle behind TENS is to block signals to pain receptors in the brain, temporarily switching off the body’s sensation of pain, by delivering gentle, electrical pulses through the skin in the areas of soreness. This may cause the brain to release endorphins, a chemical that functions as a natural painkiller. The principle behind EMS is to use electrical pulses delivered through the skin to stimulate muscle contraction.

Used as directed on the advice of a physician, TENS and EMS devices reportedly can increase blood circulation, relax muscles, prevent muscle atrophy, relieve spasms, relieve joint and muscle pain, and speed healing of muscle and soft tissue injuries. Their effectiveness can vary with the individual.

In addition to HiDow™ TENS and EMS devices and their accessories, Allied Powers offers HiDow™ products such as heating pads and packs for the neck and back; arm bands; knee, wrist and elbow wraps; plus therapeutic gloves, belts, socks and slippers. The TENS and EMS devices include rechargeable lithium batteries and come with two-year warranties.
