White began developing his design for the Easy Flow system in 2019, to meet a need he saw in the market. After moving back to Ontario from Antigua and re-experiencing Ontario’s cold winters, White thought there should be a better way to refill your windshield washer fluid without having to purchase jugs that were bad for the environment and took up space. His first customers were a handful of forecourts in Bowmanville, Ont., which White says he monitors to this day to see how his system fares in the real world.
As part of his growth initiative, White met with P.D. McLaren, a national liquid handling solutions provider, to discuss further advancements and strategies. Both teams have been working together on further design and assembly improvements over the past weeks. P.D. McLaren has partnered with Arctic Blue to manufacture, distribute and support the Easy Flow on Tap dispensers.
“It seems like a logical fit for our current product lines,” says Jason Quin, operations manager, Eastern Canada for P.D. McLaren, “The simple design and execution of dispensing washer fluid was well planned, Tom has put a robust product together that is easy to use and better for the environment.”
Today, the Easy Flow on Tap can fill about 416 vehicles with windshield washer fluid, has an integrated tire inflation system and features solar-panels that power the system along with its flashy blue lights, which add aesthetic and curb appeal at night.
