Sparkle Services, Inc. Success Story

The Full-Service Floor Cleaning Solution of Choice for Building Service Contractors

Sparkle Services, Inc. is a leader in the building services industry. Not only did they need a highly efficient rider-scrubber to dry sweep and scrub floors, they required a partner that offered factory-trained service representatives and Original Equipment Manufacturer parts to keep the machine operational long-term. Learn more about why they chose Tennant's T16 scrubber in the following case study.


Green Seal-certified Sparkle Services, Inc. is a contract cleaner that has earned a reputation as a leader in the building services industry. Sparkle Services designs customized cleaning plans to meet their customers’ specific needs and budgets. All American Foods Inc. is a broad line distributor of wholesale seafood, meat, and non-food for New England. They have a state-of-art 100,000 sq. ft. facility with multi-temp capabilities. They have been experiencing tremendous growth since they established in 1988 and serve over 8,000 customers managing more than 10,000 SKUs. They are committed to customer service and delivering quality products.


Sparkle Services needed a highly efficient, easy-to-maintain rider-scrubber to dry sweep and clean the floors in a 100,000 square foot FedEx distribution center. The scrubber also had to be environmentally friendly as FedEx had recently started a “Going Green” ad campaign.


The Tennant T16 with the dry pre-sweep option was selected because it works great, is easy to maintain, and is equipped with Tennant’s exclusive ec-H2O technology. The T16 scrubber with ec-H2O™ cleans by electrically converting water into an innovative cleaning solution. This technology cleans effectively, saves money, improves safety, and reduces environmental impact compared to daily cleaning floor chemicals and methods. Tennant direct service capabilities also interested American Foods because they knew they could count on the factory-trained service reps to quickly fix their machine, decrease down-time, and ensure OEM parts were replaced on the machine to keep the machine operating as designed.


"I knew no other company except Tennant could give us what we needed, and we bought the T16 on-site after seeing a demonstration," said Jeff Tingley, President and CEO, Sparkle Services. "The T16 is the ‘Cadillac’ of auto scrubbers and when I mention the T16, a smile comes on the faces of the operators."

Pre-sweep, ec-H2O – A Powerful Combination

"From this point on, the T16 is the machine we’ll be using because the dry pre-sweep feature does such a good job before we scrub the floor," said Tingley. "It has changed our future because we look at buildings so differently now."

"The T16 scrubber is the finest machine I’ve ever used. It’s the culmination of Tennant paying attention to users. They took everything they learned and poured it into this machine."
