Nilfisk-Advance expands outdoor offering with acquisition

PLYMOUTH, MN– Nilfisk-Advance, has acquired all the assets of Cyclone Environmental Technologies LLC and its affiliate company’s patents.

Based in Tempe, Arizona, Cyclone is an industrial cleaning technology and manufacturing company specializing in technologies for cleaning outdoor surfaces with improved productivity and minimal environmental impact.  The acquisition will form a new company within Nilfisk-Advance called “Nilfisk-Advance Technologies, Inc.”

 “Cyclone is an innovator in bringing new cleaning technologies to market that leverage high pressure washing, waste water recovery and water recycling,” said Joergen Jensen, President and CEO of Nilfisk-Advance.  “We will continue Cyclone’s leadership in this area by further developing and expanding the market reach of these innovative technologies.”

Cyclone’s cleaning technologies and products are used today by a wide range of customers such as airports, amusement parks, convention centers and other facilities with large outdoor surfaces.  Cyclone’s water recovery and recycling technologies are “green” environmental features because they allow the end-user to save and reuse large amounts of water.  In addition, Cyclone’s technologies limit the amount of pollutants and debris in water runoff, allowing for disposal that is better for the environment.

Following the acquisition, Cyclone will continue to operate at its Tempe, Arizona facility.  Cyclone founder Richard Rohrbacher and President Ellen Rohrbacher will continue to be involved in the company.

Nilfisk-Advance’s North American operations are headquartered in Plymouth, MN. Recent acquisitions include Chinese manufacturer Viper Inc. in August 2007 and Washington-based HydraMaster in March 2008.
