For 75 years, Kärcher has been a world leader in cleaning technology. With over 2,000 products, Kärcher understands cleaning problems and we solve them. Kärcher has more than 1,000 registered inventions and patents, with over 85% of our products developed in the last 5 years. Around the world, Kärcher's German-engineering is known for its Power, Quality and Innovation.
Worldwide, Kärcher has over 40,000 sales and service outlets, in more than 190 countries and employs over 7,000 people, generating almost 2 billion dollars in annual revenues. And, despite a global financial and economic crisis in 2009, Kärcher was able to create jobs and increase total revenues.
Building on this global success, Kärcher expanded its Commercial and Industrial Floor care presence into the United States, employing a dealer network that includes every state. The Kärcher Commercial and Industrial Floor care product lines contain a wide range of floor scrubbers, burnishers, extractors, sweepers, vacuums, steamers, air movers and accessories, with scrubbers and sweepers available in both walk-behind self-propelled and ride-on models.
The Kärcher Commercial Pressure washer line contains both hot and cold pressure washers with the power and technology to meet any high-pressure cleaning need, in portable, skid and stationary models.
In addition, Kärcher brings to the U.S. a unique commitment to sustainability. ECO!Efficiency is a blending of reductions in energy & material needs, with the use of renewable energies and the development of new and innovative technologies, to deliver products that are more environmentally sustainable. Over 600 research and development employees work hand-in-hand with the latest, cutting-edge technologies in construction, development, design and testing, to deliver even more economical and environmentally friendly methods and products. Our goal -- higher performance, longer product life cycles and even better environmental compatibility. Kärcher IS a driving force behind technological progress and innovation.
Since 2008 Kärcher has brought three worldwide innovations to market in the field of pressure washers for end consumers alone: the K HC 10 with hybrid technology, the K 2.20 with the 4-wheel concept and the world’s quietest models K 3.00 and K 4.00. Commercial innovations include: eco mode settings that optimize water temperature with the lowest possible fuel consumption, power nozzle design, system care products, auto shutdown and a 92% efficient burner technology.
The development of Kärcher cylindrical brush technology is just one example of environmentally sustainable floor care cleaning. Cylindrical rollers contain water and cleaning agent to a specific cleaning area, resulting in a reduction in detergent and water usage. And, improved downward pressure resulting from the cylindrical rollers design, combined with the counter-rotating brushes actually lifts dirt from the floor, rather than smearing it, resulting in less wear to the floor’s surface -- increasing its life.
Kärcher will continue to distinguish itself in future with its inventive spirit, top-class performance and innovative solutions. To find out more about Karcher, visit www.KarcherCommercial.com.
