“Nobles equipment – engineered by the Tennant Company featuring ec-H2O™ technology – has all of the features our customers are asking for,” says John Glaze, President – Facility Supplies for Unisource Worldwide. The chemical-free system has proven effectiveness while reducing cleaning costs, improving floor traction, and reducing the environmental impact of cleaning operations. The technology has received certification from the National Floor Safety Institute, along with NSF registration for use in food and beverage environments.
A related technology is also used in the Orbio 5000-Sc, a stand-alone dispensing unit that uses just water, salt and electricity to convert tap water into an effective cleaning solution that can be used in many daily cleaning applications such as window/mirror cleaning, hard surface cleaning, and carpet/upholstery cleaning. The solution created in the process is odorless and non-irritating to skin or eyes of the user or building occupants. User costs are reduced, as there is no need for buying, transporting, storing, and disposing of many conventional daily-use cleaning chemicals and packaging.
With an extensive supplier base, national distribution network, logistics expertise, and nationwide sales force, Unisource offers convenient access and reliable and timely delivery of industry-leading cleaning and facility maintenance products. The company offers a vast array of customer solutions that fulfill customer needs for maintenance supplies, cleaning chemicals and equipment, sanitary papers, packaging materials, and office papers.
