Our Friends at Redondo Car Wash

Eco-conscious car washes are becoming the industry standard because along with helping our environment, they reduce waste and cut costs for car wash facilities. Because of the new initiative to go green, Ken Crow and Chris McKenna of Redondo Beach opened a car wash with a commitment to being more environmentally conscious, complete with eco-friendly equipment. Read on to learn more about their success.

Community Focused

With the success that Ken and Chris saw from their Rock and Roll Car Wash in Hermosa Beach, Ken and Chris decided to grow their portfolio of facilities and open a second car wash in Redondo Beach. Redondo Car Wash, along with Rock and Roll Car Wash, has made a commitment to providing their customers with an environmentally-friendly car wash.

Redondo Car Wash prides itself on being a community-based facility. Their mission is to provide quality, environmentally-friendly car washes for the community while also supporting all local community sports teams and recreational leagues.

A Green Car Wash

Redondo Car Wash offers a full range of custom car wash packages that will fit into any budget, including a wide range of services from basic washes to complete detail packages.

Both Redondo and Rock and Roll Car Wash feature N/S Corporation Commercial Equipment. Built with the environment in mind, our Commercial Equipment is designed to reduce waste, save water, and save car washes any potential downtime. Redondo Car Wash features some of our best eco-friendly equipment like the Eco-10 Wash System, the Excalibur Conveyor, and the famous Bubblizer.

Our Technology

The Bubblizer

The Bubblizer technology revolutionizes how a cleaning system can tackle grime on vehicles. It uses a powerful stream of bubbles to deliver cleansing chemicals, unlike traditional foamers you find in other bus and car washes. The bubbles cover a large surface area, which allows you to use less water, chemicals, soap, and water during operation. Our Bubblizer ensures you use less chemicals and improves vehicle coverage.

The Eco-10

The ECO-10 is a ten-brush system that cleans and protects vehicles with increased efficiency. The ECO-10 system is the pinnacle of our ECO line of equipment. This brush system uses significantly less power than comparable brush systems, while still providing top quality wash services. The ECO-10 is an environmentally conscious bus, train, and car wash system that provides years of outstanding service for any eco-friendly car wash.

The Excalibur

The Excalibur Conveyor was designed to solve common problems including alleviating a bus or car wash’s need to rely on compressed air to maintain chain tension, accessing any hard-to-reach lubrication points, and reducing the amount of time needed to perform standard maintenance. It saves our partners time, money, and works hard to save the environment – one wash at a time.

Installing Foam Brushes

Bus, Train & Car Wash Foam Brush System

Are your fiber brushes at the end of their useful life? We’re here to help! At N/S Corporation, we specialize in delivering state of the art, easy-to-use products for your car wash facilities. We’ve developed a new product that will revolutionize the future of car wash technology. Read on to learn more about how to use them!

Eco Foam Brushes and Pelts

We are happy to introduce our new Eco Foam Brushes and Pelts, perfect for your bus, train, or car wash foam brush system. With these new, versatile products, you will be able to extend the life of your brushes in your facilities while improving results for your customers’ vehicles. The Eco Foam system is equipped with very thin strands that are designed to get into any crevice smoothly and easily. The material is closely sealed, so it will not absorb any water, dirt, or debris from wash to wash. Another feature we offer are the black pelts that were created for the bottom of the brush area. We made these bus and car wash foam brush system accessories black, so they won’t show any dirt from the harder cleaning areas of a vehicle.

The Perfect Fit!

If your fiber brushes are worn and have lost 40% of their brush volume, you may be ready to try something different. Switch to Eco Foam brushes and pelts for the ideal train, bus, and car wash foam brush system. When you’re ready to replace your fiber brushes, you can easily replace them with Eco Foam equipment. We’ve specially designed our brushes to ensure a direct fit into your wash system’s existing 15-1 gearbox, so there’s no need for you to replace them.

How to Install Your Car Wash Foam Brush System

To replace the top brush, rocker brush panels, and wrap brush, you simply need to drop the old brush down from its mounting and install the Eco Foam brush like you normally would. What’s even easier is that there is no driver or passenger side on the rocker brush panels and wrap brushes; these universal brushes will keep your installation as simple as possible.

It’s always easier to replace the entire brush, but if you need to replace an individual pelt, we can provide you with an all-in-one kit to use. N/S Corporation provides you with the correct hardware to install your replacement pelt and a configuration diagram to assist you with installation. Each pelt was made to fit into traditional fiber pelt bearings, so with just the use of a drill, you won’t skip a beat.

Designed for Your System

Our Eco Foam brushes and pelts are designed with you in mind. If you are in the market for a strong, durable, eco-friendly solution to your fiber brush issues, consider switching to N/S Corporation and our car wash products.

For more information about the Eco Foam brushes and pelts, please reach out to us today!

Market Misperceptions on the N/S Bubblizer

Bubblizer car wash

Car wash owners and operators have an obligation to offer the best possible services to all of their customers. With the popularity of modern car wash systems, there is a lot that goes into delivering outstanding service. From introducing innovative car wash equipment, like the N/S Bubblizer, to new car wash solutions, like automatic waxing and buffing application, car wash operators have to precisely balance everything to satisfy each customer.

The N/S Bubblizer is a revolutionary car wash package that utilizes a bubbling arch to create a dazzling light show, while efficiently applying wax or soap to a new or existing rollover system or tunnel. It also features multicolored lights to attract customers and provide a spectacular light show. Despite the simplicity of the system, there are a couple of misperceptions in the market that we would like to address.

Misperception #1: N/S Bubblizer is an inefficient way to deliver chemical.

There are some in the marketplace who perceive the N/S Bubblizer to be an inefficient way to deliver chemical — that is categorically false. This innovative system offers your modern car wash system a new and simple way to dispense chemicals instead of using foamers. The fact is, unlike foam that has to be circulated or pushed with friction material on vehicles, the N/S Bubblizer continually applies bubbles that run over the surface of your vehicle, ensuring thorough dispensing of the washing chemical and better coverage.

The marketplace misperceptions are largely based on misinformation on how the N/S Bubblizer works and dispenses chemicals. Rather than being a complex system, it’s designed with simplicity in mind, with its core purpose being to deliver and apply soap, wax, or glass treatments more effectively with the additional package of a dazzling light and bubble show.

Misperception #2: Car wash operators have no control over chemical usage.

Bubblizer light show

The N/S Bubblizer is a great addition to an already efficient car wash system. Despite what some people may think, this new chemical application solution—just like other modern wash solutions—allows operators to determine the exact amount of chemical to use. In short, it is easy for anyone in car wash operations to calibrate chemical usage down to the milliliter. For context, N/S Corporation used to sell a large number of Bubblizers to a chemical producer, so they had a vested interest in running up chemical usage.

The N/S Bubblizer comes with adjustable discharge and adjustable bubble density, allowing precise control over chemical usage. The system also allows more coverage and uses 50% less chemicals than other car wash solutions.

Benefits of the N/S Bubblizer

Minimal Chemical Usage

Considering that the Bubblizer technology makes use of bubbles to deliver chemicals over a more extensive area than regular foamers, it’s more effective and allows you to use less chemicals. That means minimal chemical usage, as low as 5 milliliters; this is dependent on chemical concentration levels.

Lower Water Consumption

Better bubble coverage with improved chemical efficiency means less water is used per vehicle, ensuring water consumption as low as ½ gallon per vehicle. Car wash owners and operators who integrate the Bubblizer technology into their new or existing wash systems are able to significantly reduce water usage.

Easier Operation and Functionality

Lava themed Bubblizer

  • The Bubblizer is much easier to rinse with full coverage when compared to foam applicators
  • The wax or soap delivery applicator is easier to adjust than foam curtains.
  • Fast and consistent solution discharge for a better and faster car wash.
  • It comes with mechanical valve switch for automatic system refill.
  • Easy bubble solution adjustability dependent on tunnel location (light or heavy bubble application).
  • Does not require compressed air, meaning it does not add load to the air compressor, unlike a foam curtain that will not work without compressed air.
  • The Bubblizer will not stop working if the air compressor goes down. This plays into the manual override feature of conveyors and how we focus on keeping the wash running even if you lose compressed air.
  • Dual and single air pump Bubblizer available for your car wash needs.

Easy Installation

The N/S Bubblizer can be installed on any type of car wash system you already have in place. Keep your business ahead by introducing the proven and quality car wash light show for an unforgettable experience for customers of all ages. The N/S Bubblizer requires no special requirements for installations. Dispense wax, soap ,and glass treatments with our efficient, dependable and cost-effective N/S Bubblizer, and expand your services and car wash revenue.

Car wash systems

At N/S Corporation, we strive to keep offering innovative and simple car wash systems and solutions that make a real difference in customer service. For more information about our themed Bubblizer applicator and other top quality car wash systems, contact us today at (877) NSWASH-1.

NS Flex Coupling Maintenance

NS Flex CouplingBackground: The NS Flex Coupling was designed specifically for transit and car wash machines by our owner/founder Thomas Ennis to withstand the rigors and abuse seen in drive through wash systems. The coupling is designed and tested to 12,000 pounds pulling force and flexibility up to 90 degrees under the most extreme conditions. Our Flex Coupling, unlike other brush coupling in our industry, does not require lubrication or continual adjustment. Under normal operation, it will last over ONE MILLION vehicle washes.

Following are a few tips to keep your Flex Coupling operating correctly, as well as some signs that a coupling should be replaced.

1. Correct brush contact pressure against the vehicle will minimize torsional load as well as minimize brush wear and possible vehicle damage.

2. Correct spacing between vehicles through the wash system will eliminate accidental pinching of the brush between two vehicles, which will cause excessive binding loads that will start shearing the mechanical rubber bond between the internal wire braided cable and metal yokes at each end.

3. Correct vehicle speed during initial brush contact should not exceed 1.5 miles per hour. Ramming the brushes will create a momentary stall situation, which can cause torsional shearing to internal mechanical bonds as well as  torsional stress loads to the internal stranded wire braided cable.

4. Replace a Flex Coupling if there are any visible cracks on the encapsulating rubber. Cracks are a sign of extreme flexing and/or dry-rot caused by age or harsh chemicals. Cracks in a coupling may not hinder its ability to continue performing normally, but they are an obvious sign of damage. Cracks will also allow for water ingress, which can cause internal corrosion that will eventually damage internal components that keep the brush from falling.

5. Replace a Flex Coupling if there is any noticeable deformity to the mounting bolt holes. Deformed/elongated mounting holes are a clear indication of prolonged torsional load damage. To check for mounting hole damage, grab the brush and rotate it side to side. If the brush rotates but the coupling does not, this would indicate damage to the Flex Coupling mounting holes or support hardware.

6. Replace a Flex Coupling if there is extreme separation of the mechanical rubber bond to the metal yoke at each end. To check for rubber to metal yoke separation, you can push the brush towards the wash bay entrance to see if the rubber separates from the metal yoke at the top or bottom of the coupling. If there is a gap larger than 1/8” and a flat screw driver with a 3/16 blade width can be pushed in between the rubber and the metal more than a 5/8” into the gap, the coupling should be replaced.  If the gap depth is less than 5/8 ” but a gap is present, the coupling should be routinely inspected and replaced if the gap increases.

Omega coupling maintenance

NS Corporation uses the Omega Coupling as a drive element for our Top Brush cleaning element, vacuum producer, and most of our pump systems. To ensure continual operation and eliminate unexpected downtime of your equipment, monthly inspections of the Omega drive coupling are essential.

NOTE: LOCKOUT TAGOUT ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO INSPECTION OR REPAIR.

When inspecting an Omega coupling, look for the following signs that indicate a potential failure or that replacement is required:

Look for any abnormal vibration of the equipment; this might be improper coupling alignment or damage to the Omega element.

Look for fatigue cracks on the element surface; if cracks are visible replace the coupling immediately.

Omega couplingLook for any missing or damaged hardware; missing hardware can cause vibration due to imbalance.

Look for discoloration of the elastomer element, which is a clear sign of material degradation and/or aging.

Look for damage or excessive corrosion of the element metal supports and shaft mounted hubs.

Proactive maintenance is key in eliminating down time. We recommend that the coupling element be replaced every 5 years, even if none of the above issues have been observed. Years of continual start and stop of the coupling can cause internal fatigue not visible by visual inspections. For any questions regarding this coupling or any other parts, contact NS Parts Sales at 1-800-782-1582.

Arc Car Wash System

Car Wash Kits to Reduce Your Downtime

Arc Car Wash System

If your car wash system is used frequently, you may notice that certain parts get worn out. Suddenly, you have to shut down for expensive maintenance and repairs, losing money and customers. To help you avoid breakdowns and reduce unnecessary downtime, N/S Corporation is proud to introduce our Retail Shop.

This expanded section of the N/S Corporation website allows you to purchase equipment to stockpile in the event that something happens to your system. When you’re reluctant to replace broken or worn out items due to hefty replacement costs, you can rely on the specific equipment kits we provide to invest in advance maintenance at lower costs.

Why Consistent Maintenance is Important

Many wash system operators may not understand why constant and consistent maintenance of their systems is so important. Often, they’re surprised by malfunctioning equipment and frequent system shutdowns.

In order to avoid downtime, experts recommend that you take the minimum expense and purchase spare parts and kits to minimize the chances of an unexpected malfunction.

Common Issues

Wash System Operators

Some of the most common shutdown issues occur due to worn couplings, old brushes, and malfunctioning RO systems.

If the couplings in your wash system are worn, they can cause premature wear of brush material, motors, and gearboxes, as well as increased chemical and water costs and potential damage to vehicle paint surfaces. Fixing these problems is much more expensive than keeping a few couplings on hand for regular replacement. You’ll find that your system runs for longer with little to no shutdown time.

Another one of the pieces that wears out the quickest in a busy car wash are the brushes. Worn brushes can cost your business money when they scratch paint and attract dust, dirt, grime, and debris. Trapped in the brushes, the dirt and debris can get everywhere in your wash system, causing rust, stains, and other damages.

Many wash system owners also encounter problems due to old RO (reverse osmosis) membranes. An old RO membrane can cause premature wear of RO filters, damage to the RO system, vehicle spotting, and increased water usage.

Worn brush materials, as well as old reducers, couplings, motors, and pumps, all affect other parts of the wash system. If any part is old or worn, your entire wash system can be compromised by the impact. It’s not enough to inspect your wash system monthly—you also need to replace worn items before they break. The parts that are used on a daily basis need to be maintained with care and pride.

What You Can Do

Specialized KitsBefore our proprietary Retail Shop, you may have waited for an item to fail and then called a specialist to overhaul your system. Now, you can stock up on parts and kits that can help with your own wash maintenance.

At N/S Corporation, we carry specialized kits that are designed to ensure you have all necessary equipment and tools stored on-site, so you have everything you need in case of a shutdown. The uptime kits designed by our parts specialists  contain the recommended spare parts and common wear parts, specifically selected for the type of machine in use. With these kits, you have a guarantee that you can get your system back on-line with minimal downtime.

If you own a business running a wash system, it may be in your best interest to stock these downtime kits, as a broken machine during business hours causes unnecessary inconvenience to you and your customers.

Timely Upgrades

Upgrading to new equipment is critical when trying to ensure optimal performance from your wash system. While they may seem costly now, when you calculate the damage caused to other parts of your wash system by one worn out item, you’ll realize it’s better to replace one part now than your entire system later. Old equipment also uses more water and power, which increases your operational costs.

Upgrading to the latest innovations helps reduce costs substantially and ensures you check your equipment regularly for any indications of improper or inefficient operation.

Bubblizer TechnologyAn Eco-Friendly Approach

If you’re a wash operator who cares about the environment, you’ll appreciate the consideration we put into the development of our spare parts and kits. Many of our items are eco-friendly and ensure minimal impact on the environment.

The bubblizer technology, for example, makes use of bubbles to deliver chemicals instead of traditional foamers. These bubbles cover an extensive surface area, larger than regular foamers, and allows you to use less water, chemicals, soap, and water during operation.

Support & Service with N/S Corporation

Since our incorporation in 1967, N/S Corporation has been on the forefront of new developments in the wash industry. We hold many patents on parts and materials, so you can stock up on proprietary parts, equipment, and replacements directly from our website.

In addition to our cutting edge technologies, we also offer top-quality, buy-out products. Browse our online store to stock up on kits and hardware to repair and replace any broken, worn out parts right away. Minimize your downtime with N/S Corporation.

N/S Corporation Supports Local Police

After driving by a car wash used by the Inglewood Police Department, N/S Corporation’s team saw that the wash system was in dire need of essential repairs. According to N/S Corporation’s President, Christopher Altschul, everyone at N/S Corporation “considered it our duty to stand behind The Inglewood Police Department.” We value the police department’s commitment to keep us safe, and the risks they take on our behalf. As concerned members of the community and professional wash system experts, we felt it was our responsibility to give back to the police force that protects our city. What They Do for Us With just 186 sworn personnel and 92 civilian support personnel, the Inglewood Police Department provides multiple resources to our community. Whenever there is a need for specially trained K9 teams, directed enforcement units, scientific services investigators, and bike teams, the Inglewood Police Department is there to help. They even assist with community affairs, along with fiscal services and recruitment. After being chartered on February 14, 1908, this department celebrated 100 years in 2008. The police force that protects and serves this community has maintained its integrity and dedication for over a century. As a beacon for South Bay, they’ve created a place where residents can live in peace by reducing crime and enhancing their quality of life. Because of everything they do for us, N/S Corporation took a moment to reflect on the impact we could have on their lives. As wash system developers, retailers, and innovators, we took our experience in wash systems and applied it where we saw it was needed most: at the police car wash. old-wash-system new-wash-system What We Did for Them crew-cleaning-in-car-wash car-wash-rubber-brushes When our crew arrived at the carwash, they noticed a number of items needed to be repaired or replaced. Many of the metal parts were extremely rusted and covered in grime, and the brushes were full of dirt and soap scum. As the service crew inspected the wash system, they repaired, cleaned, and replaced brush pelts, motors, gear reducers, pumps, pressure guns, and a number of other miscellaneous hardware. After scrubbing, washing, and installing, we’re proud to say that the car wash that police vehicles use in Inglewood is now sparkling and clean. Clamps and pumps are no longer brown with rust and stains and all the brushes are fresh and new. After our work, you can expect to see much cleaner police vehicles in Inglewood, CA. We are proud of our work on the police car wash in Inglewood. We are N/S Corporation, washing the world one vehicle at a time.

Unique Car Washes that Help the Environment

wash systems

These days, businesses of all types are actively seeking out ways to become more environmentally friendly. Not only is poor waste and power management detrimental to the planet, but it also hurts a company’s image. In order to preserve the Earth as well as the reputation of your business, it’s important to be proactive in seeking out viable solutions.

In the large vehicle washing industry – an industry that relies on resources like water and power – this is especially true. People are going to take notice when you’re using large amounts of precious resources, especially when there are eco-friendly car wash alternatives readily available. That’s why running an environmentally friendly car wash is so important.

N/S Corporation Provides Cost-Effective Solutions

Since we were founded in 1961, N/S Corporation has been a trusted name in the transit wash sector. As industry leaders, we believe that it’s our responsibility to provide new and innovative vehicle wash systems that minimize waste and reduce overhead costs for the business owners we service. We also work hard to reduce chemical usage so that you and your customers can feel good about washing your vehicles. Let’s take a look at some ways that you can make your dream of operating an environmentally friendly car wash a reality.

1. Use Bubbles Instead of Traditional Foamers

Many of today’s successful eco-friendly washes have switched over to bubbles instead of traditional foamers, and they don’t look back. Bubbles are a superior format for delivering chemicals because they cover far more surface area. Foam needs to be circulated and pushed with a friction material, much like shaving. Bubbles naturally flow across the surface of the vehicle, coating it much more efficiently. To put it simply, bubbles spread and foams stick.

Bubbles Are More Fun

This revolutionary chemical delivery system is beautiful in its simplicity, but your goal of running an environmentally friendly car wash isn’t the only reason to switch over to bubbles – they’re also a whole lot of fun. Improve customer loyalty by providing an unforgettable experience every time. Perfect for themed vehicle washes, our unique Bubblizer delivers chemical in bubble form, while also providing a dazzling light show. Entertain your customers with multicolor displays that turn your bubbles into lava, honey, slime, and so much more.

Reduce Spending and Improve Your Bottom Line

Bubbles allow you to provide the same level of quality while using less power, water, and chemical. From a financial standpoint, switching over is a no-brainer. Besides doing your part to save the planet, running an eco-friendly car wash can be an excellent way to save some serious money. If you’re tired of paying more than you need to, give us a call and we’ll be happy to tell you all about our awesome bubble delivery systems.

2. Use Modern Equipment

While upgrading your outdated equipment may seem like a major expense, the fact is that you’re losing money every wash. It’s important to think about the long-term success of your business, and there are quite a few ways that upgrading to current industry standards can save you a substantial amount of money in the long run. Efficiency and waste reduction weren’t as critical in the past, and now it’s time to transition overt to today’s revolutionary vehicle wash systems.

car wash in actionWhy Upgrading Matters

Outdated equipment often utilizes significantly more precious resources than today’s comparable units. Today’s manufacturers are focusing more on reducing water and power usage, which is a huge leap forward for the industry, and especially for companies that are tired of overpaying for energy and water. In particular, NS Corporation is known as an industry leader, and we’re proud to offer efficient, environmentally friendly car wash equipment that you can use guilt-free for many years to come.

N/S Corporation Products for Waste Reduction

We’re known for our innovative car and transit wash systems, and we’ve been trusted by informed fleet owners and transit authorities since 1961. Our Bubblizer lets you use less chemical and improve vehicle coverage. We also offer the ECO-10 ten-brush system that uses significantly less power than comparable systems, while still providing the quality of wash that made N/S Corporation noteworthy. The ECO-10 is a green car wash machine that will provide years of outstanding service for your eco-friendly car wash.

3. Go Green in the Office

While your car wash equipment is a major factor as far as wasted resources, there are others to consider too. You should also take a close look at your office operations. For example, whenever possible, try to go paperless. Use post-consumer waste (PCW) paper products and packaging whenever a paperless option isn’t available. Switch over to biodegradable products, and transition over to a more environmentally friendly lighting option such as LEDs or CFLS.

If you’re truly committed to running an environmentally friendly car wash, you may want to go a step further and look into alternative energy sources. While going off the grid with solar power is one of the best ways to reduce power consumption, it’s not always a feasible option. In some parts of the country, you can sign up to purchase “green power” from renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, geothermal, hydropower, and plant matter.

ECO wash systems

4. Educate Your Team And Customers

You can extend your environmental reach by educating the people who frequent your business. You have a platform, and providing some basic information on going green helps to save the planet. It’s also a great marketing strategy. People want to support companies that are doing their part, so spreading awareness really is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Your website and social media are excellent platforms for sharing information, and you could also give out free pamphlets at your brick-and-mortar locations.

5. Be Aware of Your Company’s Effect on the Planet

One of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to simply be conscientious. If you genuinely want to turn into a more environmentally friendly car wash, it will happen naturally over time. Pay attention to your daily operations, always be looking for new ways to improve efficiency. Just by approaching your business with this mindset, you’ll start to notice new ways to improve how things run.

For example, you could experiment with using less water or less chemical – or both. Or, you could replace your blowers with a system that uses less HP. If you’re able to get the same results, why not save some money while saving the planet? There are always going to be new, emerging technologies to help you go green, so try to stay aware of your options, and implement new strategies whenever you can.

6. Recycle

Recycling is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make your eco-friendly car wash more sustainable. Naturally, the first thought that comes to mind is throwing cans and bottles in the proper receptacle, but there are outside-the-box solutions out there too, including products and systems that allow you to reuse water instead of letting it go to waste after just one wash.

Little details may seem inconsequential, but adopting positive habits will really make a difference over time. For example, you could save shipping boxes and reuse them instead of buying new boxes. You could repurpose used furniture or office supplies instead of buying new products. Whenever you’re about to throw something away, ask yourself if it could be used again. You may end up surprised by how often you can. Instead of just using it again that one time, make it a company policy. Try to keep that forward momentum going and the change will happen organically.

7. Use Safer Chemicals

While it may not be possible to stop using chemical solutions entirely, you can choose to use safer, biodegradable options. Many soap solutions contain potassium, phosphates, sodium, and other toxins that are detrimental to the creatures that live in rivers, lakes, and streams. These days, you have plenty of options, and if you’re still relying on outdated chemicals, it may be time to look into a more progressive option. Additionally, washing vehicles on gravel or grass is ideal because they filter the tainted water before it enters a storm drain or the ground.

8. Stick with N/S Corporation

If you’ve noticed your business’ utility bills increasing, now is the time to upgrade your car wash system. Since 1961, N/S Corporation has been a trusted name in the transit and car wash industries, and our role as leaders continues to this day. We’re proud to offer realistic solutions that help you to save quite a bit of money while doing your part to reduce your company’s carbon footprint.
