We are 80 years in business now. Since ACS introduced the metal sponge in 1939, we have expanded into non-woven hand pads, sponges, mops, brooms, brushes and finally floor pads in the early 2000s. With the acquisitions of ETC and Treleoni® in 2017, the floor pad offering with ACS today is second to none.
Although most applications involved VCT previously, today the market is very different. We see so much terrazzo, marble, concrete and rubberized surfaces, all of which require different pads.
In addition to our Commercial and Premium line of conventional floor pads, we produce specialty pads to meet the demand of the growing market. We manufacture the largest line of diamond pads in the industry. Our UHS burnishing pad line features the original Gorilla® polishing and shining pad series from ETC, a varied offering of proprietary blended UHS pads and some unique pads like Heat, 2001 Laminated, Armadillo and The Cure.
Just last fall at ISSA Dallas, ACS introduced Turbostrip™ Segmented Rotary Pad for High Performance Floor Stripping. This product is patent-pending due to its 24 cutting edge design. This is the first non-flat pad in over 50 years.
We also recently launched our Duala series of Clean and Shine Pads. After observing the market and listening to operators’ requests for a high-speed machine pad, we designed both a low-speed and high-speed version to meet this need. The high-speed model uses the same laminated inner strata as our ETC 2001 pad for higher performance and longer pad life.
Both ACS and ETC have been producing mops for many years. We understand you cannot effectively put a floor pad down until you’ve wet-mopped or dust-mopped the floor. All these tools are connected- that’s why we offer a full product line in the mop category.
The Great White Finish Mop from ETC is one of the best for laying floor finish with no imperfection. The construction of specialty nylon filament and state-of-the-art production provides for best results.
Additionally, we introduced TrapMaster Disposable Dust Trapping Pads at the 2018 ISSA Dallas. This is the first disposable non-woven pad with proprietary dust and dirt adhering agents that will outperform anything on the market today.
At ACS, we know cleaning- this is what we do. From UL® certified green recycled PET materials to ISO certified plants and processes, we are leading the way on many fronts in the cleaning products industry.
