“On behalf of ISSA and the global cleaning industry, I thank the inspiring companies that submitted an entry in the 2019 ISSA Innovation Award Program,” said ISSA executive director John Barrett. “Your efforts not only facilitate efficiency in our industry but are also a vital part of helping ISSA and its members change the way the world views cleaning.”

The pioneering products and services featured in this year’s ISSA Innovation Award Program shine a light on the culture of innovation in the cleaning industry. “From sustainable cleaning supplies to robotics and more, our industry is definitely making its mark,” Barrett said. “The voters will have a hard time selecting from this amazing group!”
