August 13, 2009

MINNEAPOLIS-August 13, 2009- Tennant Company today announces that the company and its ec-H2O™ technology will be featured on the cable television program “World’s Greatest!...” In its third season, “World’s Greatest!...” features behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with some of the most unique companies, products and people worldwide. Tennant Company is being featured for its innovative leadership, as evidenced by its ec-H2O technology.

“It is a great honor for Tennant Company to be recognized by ‘World’s Greatest!...’ as one of the world’s greatest companies for our commitment to innovative solutions that are helping to make the world cleaner and safer,” said Melissa Engelhart, director of Global Business Marketing with Tennant Company. “Our ec-H2O technology is changing lives, it’s changing the cleaning industry, and it’s changing the impact cleaning has on the world. I wholeheartedly agree that both the technology and Tennant Company deserve this recognition by the ‘World’s Greatest”...’.”

Developed by Tennant researchers and engineers and named by R&D Magazine as one of the most technologically significant developments in 2008, ec-H2O technology 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.

“World’s Greatest!...” airs nationally on the ION Network. Tennant Company will be featured on episode 124 of the program, which will air on Monday, August 17; Tuesday, August 18; and Wednesday, August 19. Visit www.tvguide.com or www.iontelevision.com for a complete listing of air times. The program will also be broadcast at Noon Eastern on Wednesday, August 19 for DirecTV and Dish Network customers.
