Corporate Citizenship

Creating Balance

Tennant Company has an unwavering commitment to quality products, dedicated employees, operating with unquestionable integrity and standing as a strong pillar in the community. Over time, Tennant Company’s “community” has expanded from its humble North Minneapolis sawmill to ‘as far as the east is from the west’. While the global community has grown, so has Tennant’s commitment to the same areas that were important back in 1870: People & Communities, Human Rights & Ethics, and Safety.

Ethics, integrity and responsibility are immutable Tennant characteristics embodied in our core value of Stewardship to leave the world in better condition than we found it.
