2007 In-house Facility Industry Leaders Review

September 19, 2010
For those of you wondering where your department ranks among fellow CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine readers, we present the 2007 In-house Facility Industry Leaders Review.

JanSan pros from around North America answered surveys to compete for a top spot on our cleaning rankings. In the following pages, learn which facilities:
  • Clean the most square feet
  • Employ the most people
  • Service the most number of buildings
  • Care for the most restrooms
  • Maintain the largest single area.
We based these elite listings on responses from CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine and CM e-News Daily™ readers.

If you think your department should make next year’s cut, or have any questions about the results, please contact Senior Editor Rich DiPaolo at (516) 404-4532 or rdipaolo@ntpmedia.com.
