John Day Company to act as Strategic Distribution Partner for Spray Nine


OLATHE, KS — ITW Professional Brands today announced that the John Day Company will act as a strategic distribution partner for Spray Nine® disinfectants and degreasers, marketing Spray Nine to its industrial customers located throughout the Midwest.  

As a current distributor for the DYKEM® industrial marking products, SCRUBS® pre-moistened wipes and Dymon® specialty cleaning products brands, the addition of the Spray Nine brand allows the John Day Company to offer a broader assortment of ITW Professional Brands products to meet the unique needs of its industrial customer base.  

“We have been offering ITW Professional Brands products for more than 30 years,” said John Fonda, Chairman and CEO, John Day Company.  “By creating this strategic partnership, we can now supply a greater mix of well-known and trusted brands.  This allows us to better distinguish ourselves as a “house of professional brands” and value-added partner with our customers."

Introduced more than 50 years ago, Spray Nine is the industry’s first “spray on, wipe off” cleaner.  It is a cleaner, degreaser, disinfectant and deodorizer used in schools, factories, offices and government settings. An EPA-registered product, Spray Nine sanitizes in 10 seconds, disinfects for viruses in 30 seconds and kills 99.9 percent of germs in 45 seconds – claims only Spray Nine can make.

The Spray Nine product line also includes COCO SCRUB® and POLY SCRUB® hand cleaners, EARTH SOAP® and GREZ-OFF® industrial cleaners and degreasers, and specialty cleaning products Odor Eliminator, AV-8® Aircraft Soap, Glass & Stainless Steel Cleaner, Tub N’ Tile, and Screen Cleaner.

“In addition to innovative products, John Day Company offers its customers outstanding value, strong technical expertise and a customized customer service department,” said Rich Bucher, director of marketing, ITW Professional Brands.  “We are both pleased and honored they have decided to partner with us by adding Spray Nine to their already impressive list of ITW Professional Brands products.”
