MINNEAPOLIS-June 25, 2009- Tennant Company, a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that help create a cleaner, safer world, today announces that it was recently selected to participate in the Premier healthcare alliance’s first Innovation Celebration, an annual event to celebrate advances in healthcare while highlighting healthcare industry suppliers committed to innovation and improving patient outcomes.

Premier’s Innovation Celebration highlights innovative solutions that bring a positive impact to healthcare delivery. The inaugural event showcased 26 products from 24 of Premier’s 800 contracted suppliers. The showcased products, which included Tennant Company’s ec-H2O™ technology, were selected by a cross-functional team of Premier alliance members and staff, including clinical product planners, clinical field specialists, pharmacists, supply chain professionals, materials management experts, and nurses.

“We are proud to have been recognized by the Premier healthcare alliance for our innovative ec-H2O technology, which is helping keep patients’ and healthcare workers’ facilities clean and safe by eliminating the need for cleaning chemicals. This recognition further validates Tennant Company’s commitment to creating a cleaner, safer world,” said Jeffery Buysse, director of Channel Development for Tennant Company.

Tennant Company’s ec-H2O technology, developed by Tennant researchers and engineers and named by R&D Magazine as one of the most technologically significant developments in 2008, helps to meet the ever-growing need for sustainable cleaning. The ec-H2O technology delivers proven cleaning results without the negative environmental and health concerns associated with producing, packaging, transporting, using and disposing of traditional cleaning chemicals. The technology starts with water and ends with water, so it can be handled and disposed of easily and safely. It uses 70 percent less water than traditional cleaning methods, which increases scrub time up to three times per tank. It also leaves behind no slippery detergent residue on the floor, and releases no used detergent discharge into water systems. Eliminating the need for chemical additives enhances worker safety and reduces costs for purchasing and disposal of chemicals.

“The Innovation Celebration is a unique opportunity to unveil revolutionary concepts and developments in the healthcare industry,” said Mike Alkire, president of Premier Purchasing Partners. “Similar to the Premier alliance, these suppliers are committed to innovation that leads to improved quality and reduced costs, and we’re happy to showcase their efforts to our alliance members.”

Innovation Celebration participants were featured on June 16 at the 2009 Premier Annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in Anaheim, Calif. Basic criteria for selection included solutions that displayed uniqueness, as well as solutions that have an impact on an unmet medical need.
