Columbia Is The Solution For The Las Vegas Convention And Visitors Authority
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) currently manages over 95 acres of parking lots and 3.2 million square feet of indoor space. The LVCVA hosts a large variety of events which require different set-ups, spaces, and equipment. With that amount of space to cover and the variety of events hosted, it is apparent that speed and efficiency are extremely important to the staff of the LVCVA. The solution to this need was electric work vehicles.
The need for electric vehicles is huge due to the amount of indoor space they must be operated in [and] Columbia vehicles have proven to be very dependable in our work environment, which is the main reason for purchasing Columbia vehicles along with their partnership with U.S. Communities, said Glenn Adams, Mechanic-Welder Supervisor for the LVCVA.
The electric vehicles used on the LVCVA campus have a vast range of uses. Adams commented, We currently operate 109 electric vehicles with an order in for 61 more Columbia replacements this year. The role these vehicles play on our campus is a necessity . . . These vehicles are used by six different departments to transport personnel to various work areas, building and property maintenance, property tours and patrolling the facility.
Columbia vehicles are 100% electric making them extremely quiet and ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. They also cost less to maintain than traditional combustion engines. These are some of the reasons that Columbia stands out from the competition. Columbias dedicated team is devoted to finding inspired solutions for all customers, even if that means engineering a vehicle from the tires up.The attention to detail and exceptional customer service by Columbias team cannot be beat! Everyone at Columbia vehicles have been wonderful to work with and their assistance with detailed configurations of the specific vehicle requirements have been very much appreciated, praised Adams.
