Come and discover the reinvention of the wheel that will transform the hotel industry starting this fall

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the only Official Supplier of the Belgian Court

 In the tourism sector that recently had to endure a lot of blows, it is nice to be able to deliver some good news, especially when it concerns a Belgian innovation that will soon make the lives of thousands of hotel employees and guests more pleasant. Mercura, TENTE, and Le Plaza Hotel would like to invite you to discover a unique, ergonomic invention for the hotel industry that will take well-being and service to the next level.

It’s a known fact that hotel visitors can expect to see hotel service staff push extremely heavy carts loaded with towels, bedding, and room service orders over heavily carpeted floors. Did you know that those things can weigh up to 150 kg? 

Correction: it was a known fact. From now on, hotel staff no longer have to endure backbreaking work and long waiting times for guests are over. The Belgian trolley manufacturer Mercura and wheel manufacturer TENTE have joined forces to create a smart and revolutionary solution: light, aluminum service trolleys with electric E-Drive Flex wheels. The result? An ergonomic design, fewer back problems, and overall smoother hotel service.

Hotel Le Plaza is the first hotel in Belgium to test Mercura and TENTE’s new service cars, and are focusing on increasing the well-being of staff and guests. This is an additional boost for this prestigious hotel’s status, which is also the only Official Supplier to the Belgian Court.
