“We do not inherit the earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children.” Native American Proverb
Kranz, Inc. is a fourth generation family-owned business, which was founded in 1850. As the oldest cleaning
supplies, paper products and packaging distributor in the country, we embrace the role of leading our industry
to create a sustainable future for our children.
KRANZ GREEN™ products and processes promote the performance, productivity, health and safety of our
customers, building occupants and cleaning personnel and minimize the impact on our environment through
safe and cost-effective Sustainable Solutions that Work For You!
We strive to leave our children a legacy that is better than the one we were given, to earn a fair return on our
investment of time and money and to have some fun while doing it.
Green Cleaning is more than just a new product or piece of equipment.
KRANZ GREEN™ is a complete system for creating healthier, more
productive facilities without harming the environment.
You can have confidence in KRANZ
GREEN™ as we have used the
leading standards from organizations
like the US Green Building Council,
Healthy Schools Campaign and
Hospitals for a Healthy Environment as
our “roadmap.” With KRANZ GREEN™
we will use the leading third-party
standards to create Sustainable
Solutions that Work for you!
||PRODUCTS & EQUIPMENT
KRANZ GREEN™ selects
cleaning chemicals, janitorial
paper, can liners, vacuums and
other products that are certified
green by independent third-party
organizations such as Green Seal,
Environmental Choice, Chlorine
Free Products Association, and
the Carpet & Rug Institute. We
are one of the first to use products
and processes certified by the
Greenguard Environmental Institute
||TRAINING & SUPPORT
The success of any new program
depends on effective training
and support. KRANZ GREEN™
includes the industry’s most
effective training tools. Our staff
will help you implement the KRANZ
GREEN™ system in your facility,
and provide the on-going support
to ensure your continued success.
With KRANZ GREEN™ you can
use our products, equipment and
processes with confidence.
||FROM PRODUCTS TO SYSTEMS
Certainly, that means selecting the right cleaning chemicals,
janitorial paper, tools, and equipment for your facility. But, it also
means understanding how these products are properly used
in order to reduce their impact on users, occupants, and the
environment. It also means implementing the appropriate
programs, processes and procedures to ensure your facility is
cleaned effectively, efficiently, and within your budget: that is the
KRANZ GREEN™ system.
|WHY IS GREEN CLEANING
The cleaning industry is enormous, consuming
billions of pounds of cleaning chemicals and
janitorial paper annually. This has a tremendous
impact on water, electricity and landfills. Hundreds
of millions of pounds of equipment are dumped
in landfills every year. Green Cleaning can
help preserve our natural resources for future
||A HOLISTIC APPROACH
KRANZ GREEN™ is a complete system that includes
an understanding of the needs of the building
occupants, the building structure, furnishings and
equipment; cleaning personnel, the organization’s
mission, and the local environment.
|GOOD FOR HEALTH AND FOR
Green Cleaning is important far beyond the
outdoor environment. School age children are
more vulnerable than adults to indoor pollutants,
dust, VOC’s, etc. Studies have proven that the
positive impacts of a healthy indoor environment
include improved school test scores, and
companies with Green Cleaning programs have
documented improved employee productivity,
morale, and an excellent ROI.
||A PROGRAMMED APPROACH
A cost effective Green Cleaning program is not a “one-size fits all”
product. We have worked with industry leading suppliers and system
developers to create the KRANZ GREEN™ system specifically to help
you make the choices that are appropriate for your unique situation.
We can help you assess your current cleaning system, evaluate
your needs and help you choose the right system to meet your
goals. Change can be difficult, so we provide the training and
structure to help you implement your new program at a pace that will
ensure positive results in your facility.
