Tennant in joint development with Kaivac
October 7, 2009
MINNEAPOLIS — Tennant Company and Kaivac Inc. recently announced they are in joint development to incorporate Tennant''s patent-pending ec-H2O technology into spray-and-vac, or No-Touch Cleaning, systems for restrooms, according to a press release.
Since ec-H2O is a technology that transforms water into a powerful cleaner, the new system will enable customers to sanitize even heavily soiled restrooms without the use of potentially dangerous chemicals; this approach is not only safer but also cost-effective, the release stated.
Tennant Company President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Chris Killingstad said: “This extension of ec-H2O into No-Touch Cleaning is consistent with our vision to continue to expand this successful technology into its many potential applications. Kaivac is an outstanding partner. Incorporating ec-H2O into their market-leading systems and equipment builds upon our mission to clean more of our customer''s environments in more environmentally friendly ways.”
Eliminating the need for chemical injection makes ec-H2O technology a key component of Kaivac''s patent-pending Rapid Restroom Sanitizing program, which not only accelerates but also greatly simplifies machine operation and training, the release noted.
Bob Robinson, founder and CEO of Kaivac Inc., said: “Tennant is a world leader with a reputation for innovation, and we are excited to partner with them on this important project. With this announcement, we''re working together to expand the reach of this innovative technology while making restroom cleaning more effective, productive, safer and environmentally friendly. Everybody wins; especially the customer.”
