Challenger Manufacturing Ltd. has signed a strategic alliance with the Elgin Sweeper Company to market and distribute their Challenger mechanical street sweepers under the Elgin Sweeper brand name in North America.

The Elgin Broom Badger™ dual-engine sweeper, mounted on an Isuzu NRR 19,500 lb. Class 5 cabover chassis, is easy to operate and maintain and does not require a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to operate

“This agreement allows Elgin Sweeper to further extend our street sweeper product offering in North America and provide our municipal and contractor customers with more options to meet their sweeping needs,” said Brian Giles, sweeper products manager, Elgin Sweeper.

“We are excited about taking this next step to grow our North American market presence with Elgin Sweeper and through their unmatched dealer support network,” said Mirek Byczynski, president of Challenger Manufacturing.

“This economical, compact sweeper is ideal for our municipal and contractor customers who need powerful cleaning without a full-size sweeper,” Giles said.

A private, Canadian-owned company, Challenger Manufacturing Ltd. has been producing sweepers for over six years, with hundreds of road sweepers being sold and operated throughout North America.

With nearly 100 years of experience, Elgin Sweeper offers municipalities, contractors and industries the most sweeper options in the country, using the latest sweeping technologies, including alternative fuel, mechanical, pure vacuum, regenerative air and waterless dust control.
