 Product Reviews: Instilling Pride with this Super Silent Carwash

Today's Manager
December 3, 2019

A silent carwash? You must be as intrigued as I was upon hearing about this. Karpride is Singapore’s first tech and touch car wash. Mr Steve Er, director of Hock Cheong Automec elaborates that Karpride came about through a collaboration with Ngee Ann Polytechnic students back in 2008 and his aim is to bring pride back to the car wash industry by elevating the image of the car wash industry.

This Singaporean innovation is currently available at the Lorong Chuan Esso station. It takes about five minutes of almost absolute silence and it was bizarre as I grew up in the era of noisy bristles cleaning the car and mind you dear readers, I’m not that old! Many people will be sceptical as seeing next to nothing in terms of foam and hearing almost nothing will definitely raise an eyebrow.

Karpride is also environmental friendly as it uses 41 per cent less water compared to regular manual car washes. After the almost noiseless five-minute car wash experience, you can still consider getting the car wash folks a cold drink as they wipe down your car after the Karpride tech and touch car wash experience.
