Tennant Company are a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that help to create a cleaner, healthier world. Based and founded in Minneapolis, US, Tennant is now in over 20 countries worldwide and boasts some of the most innovative cleaning solutions and products on the Market.

Starting from humble beginnings back in 1870, almost 130 years later Tennant has seen its business and product line grow from one lowly floor dry-cleaning machine to now having just about any product or solution for every cleaning need from a basic vacuum cleaner right through to the new city cleaning product, the award winning Green Machine 500ze.

Tennant has always been, and continues to be very focused on environmental issues and sustainability. Its patented ec-h20 water technology is able to electrically convert plain tap water into a powerful detergent and then back to tap water again for disposal. Technologies like these have garnered Tennant some very prestigious awards in the last few years including the coveted Ruban D’Honneur for innovation at the European Business Awards last year.

Taking a look in more detail at some of Tennant product base, and as mentioned earlier, the latest innovation to the City Cleaning portfolio is the Green Machine 500ze. The worlds first zero emission, lithium ion powered street sweeper. Designed and created to aid government and local council environmental targets for both carbon emissions and also noise levels. Trialling in the UK began this year and the results so far are brilliant and very positive.

Tennant Company UK is based in Northampton, and is headed up by General Country Manager, Nick Meredith. He is joined by a team of over 200 people in the UK alone and has 3 dedicated sales forces. One for field and regional sales, one for the larger Strategic & Retail Accounts and finally a dedicated City Cleaning team who primarily deal with the municipalities and local councils.

Tennant also have one of (if not the best!) service offerings of any of the large Cleaning companies, with nearly twice as many dedicated service engineers as their closest rivals. (90 in total, covering the whole of the UK and Northern Ireland, 364 days of the year.)

One of the main bonuses to being in the industry they are in is that EVERYTHING needs cleaning. Naming some of the UK’s biggest household names as their customers means Tennant have already got a huge presence in the UK but also see so much potential both with new and existing industries, and also by growing through acquisition, the UK team have big plans for taking Tennant forward in the next few years.
