Comments: Privately-held Spartan is one of the largest players in the industrial and institutional cleaning categories. In recent years, management has emphasized green cleaning solutions with the rollout of brands such as Green Solutions and Biorenewables.
In fact, the company is so big on green that it hosted its first Green Cleaning Specialist Certification Program during its distributor sales seminar in January. Attendees learned about Spartan’s complete line of institutional and industrial cleaning products, with emphasis on Spartan’s environmentally preferable products, proper use, and how these products will help their customers go green and support sustainability initiatives.
At last year’s International Sanitary Supply Association trade show, the company won a Best Customer Service award.
