OPHARDT’s products for the Bundeswehr

SanTRAL® Plus und ingo-man® werden von der Bundeswehr verwendet.

With 183,000 soldiers, the Bundeswehr (German Armed Forces) is a sizeable organization. And from now on, our products will bring hygienic safety to the Bundeswehr. Our SanTRAL® Plus series dispensers, waste garbage cans & co., as well as various ingo-man® dispensers, are moving into barracks and buildings.

The German Armed Forces have been part of German society for 65 years. They are helping with the flood disaster in Ahrweiler, are involved in national defense through the NATO alliance, and are participating in UN peace missions. As a result, German soldiers are also serving in other countries, like Kosovo, Jordan, and South Sudan.

However, the German Armed Forces is not just made up of soldiers. Around 82,000 civilian employees also work for our country on a daily basis, making the German Armed Forces one of the largest employers in the German public sector. In addition to soldiers, the Bundeswehr employs gardeners, psychologists, painters, office management assistants, administrative assistants, and animal keepers. Every year around 1,300 adolescents start their careers with the Bundeswehr in over 50 different types of apprenticeships. These apprenticeships equip Germany’s youth for business, technical work, medical professions, and the trades. 

For the Bundeswehr in action: SanTRAL® Plus and ingo-man®

SanTRAL Plus and ingo-man for the Bundeswehr

To offer a comprehensive hygiene solution for its employees and members, the Bundeswehr relies on various products from OPHARDT Hygiene. One of these is the ingo-man®: Germany’s best-known disinfectant dispenser, renowned for its open Euro bottle format and available in 500 ml or 1 L versions, as required.

SanTRAL® Plus devices are also being used across the organizaiton. The flexibility of this product line appealed to the Bundeswehr. SanTRAL® products have always been designed as an open system, to guarantee compatibility with products from different manufacturers. The flexibility to choose between different manufacturers of filling materials enables a reliable and cost-effective supply.

The high-quality design of the SanTRAL® Plus series is perfect for high-traffic areas. The dispensers are made out of a single piece of stainless steel and have vandal-proof locks. The viewing window makes checking product fill levels easy. The elegant sloping roof design prevents objects from being placed on top of the dispenser. Smooth welds, bends, and powder coatings ensure quick and easy cleaning.

The Bundeswehr has ordered Smart Ready devices, which can be converted to a smart version at any time with a few easy steps. In the future, once the devices are made smart, the Bundeswehr will unlock the many benefits of smart monitoring and alerts to increase efficiency and track infection prevention.
