We spoke with Rus Budde, Director of Marketing & Sales at CSL for some time about the current and new products at CSL. We’ve been selling their Easy-Mover and Economy Bellman Carts, and also the CSL Utility Carts for some time now. CSL offers great products for the price. All of their products ship quickly. In talking to Rus, you can tell that CSL goes to great lengths in making sure that the customer will be very satisfied with the product they receive from CSL. We at Hippo Inc, as the dealer, love the commitment to quality and service that CSL has.
What’s new at CSL?
Beginning in early January 2009, CSL will be offering three new carts. These will be imported from China, whereas the Easy-Mover and Economy Bellman Carts are made in the USA and will continue to be. As you can see from the pictures, they will be available in a couple different finishes, Titanium Gold Plated and Satin Stainless Steel. Initially, they’ll only be available in what you see in the pictures. The Satin Stainless Steel model will be available with gray carpet, black bumper, and black pneumatic tires. That cart will eventually be available in a Titanium Gold Plated finish. The other cart shown in the pictures is a Titanium Gold Plated cart with red carpet, black bumper, and black pneumatic tires. It will also eventually be available in a Satin Stainless Steel finish. The third cart is not shown. It’s a Titanium Gold Plated Hand Truck with red carpet.
All of these carts looks very similar to carts that we’re already offering from Monarch. See the MCL-204T and MCL-207S. If the build and quality is better with the CSL Carts than the Monarch Carts, which we expect to be the case, they might replace the Monarch Carts on Bellman Cart Solutions. We have had great success with CSL for the two years that we’ve been doing business with them and look forward to selling more and more of their products in the years to come. Thanks to Rus Budde of CSL for spending so much time with us at the 2008 International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show (IHMRS).
