Tennant Company ec-H2O Technology Wins Sanitary Maintenance Magazine's 2015 Distributor Choice Award

Jun. 30, 2015

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, has been honored with a 2015 Distributor Choice Award by the readers of Sanitary Maintenance magazine for its sustainable cleaning technology ec-H2O™.

Tennant’s proprietary ec-H2O technology—available on most Tennant-built floor scrubbers—electrically converts water into a solution that cleans effectively, saves money, improves safety and reduces environmental impact. The technology is effective on many types of soils, leaves no chemical residue on floors and helps to improve floor traction, which can help to reduce slip-and-fall accidents. Scrubbers equipped with ec-H2O technology use up to 70 percent less water than conventional floor scrubbing methods.

“Tennant Company is very pleased and honored that our ec-H2O technology was named a Distributor Choice Award winner by Sanitary Maintenance magazine,” said David Huml, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing for Tennant Company. “Our distributor partners are an important extension of the Tennant team. With authorized partners in more than 80 countries around the world, it is especially gratifying to be recognized by a global group of distributors across the entire sanitary industry.”

The Sanitary Maintenance Distributor Choice Awards Program recognizes the most innovative and useful sanitary supply products of the year, as determined by sanitary supply distributors who voted in an online campaign. The voters are readers of Sanitary Maintenance magazine, which reaches 15,000 distributors active in the sanitary supply marketplace.

Huml added, “We value our distributor relationships and work together to deliver the best products and solutions to our mutual commercial and industrial customers. It’s great to see ec-H2O become a globally well-adopted cleaning technology that cleans effectively, saves money, improves safety and reduces environmental impact. This makes us even more excited about our recent launch of ec-H2O NanoClean™, the next generation of this proprietary technology.” For more information on ec-H2O NanoClean, visit

The Distributor Choice Award winners are featured in the June 2015 issue of Sanitary Maintenance—the original publication of the janitorial supply industry—reaching active distributors such as janitorial, paper, foodservice, industrial and wholesale.
