Top honor for Tennant green machines


Tennant Company, a world leader in the design and manufacture of cleaning equipment has won a prestigious Ruban d’Honneur award for innovation at the European Business Awards.

Tennant was selected for its Green Machines 500ze, a municipal sweeper with a zero emissions rating. Green Machines will now compete as a finalist within the UKTI Award for Innovation.

Tennant Green Machines was one of only five Belgian-based companies to be recognised for a Ruban d’Honneur and will be at the glittering Awards final at The Westin, Paris, on November 16.

The Ruban d’Honneur is awarded to up to ten successful entrants in each category. Judges deliberate to select which individuals and businesses are awarded the Ruban d’Honneur, and it is from the Ruban d’Honneur recipients that the final winner in each category is decided.

Receiving a Ruban d’Honneur is an impressive achievement and celebrates businesses that demonstrate exceptional performance within their sector.

Tennant was awarded the 2009 Ruban d’Honneur for innovation for its ec-H2O technology, which effectively cleans without chemicals or detergents.

Winning the 2010 award demonstrates Tennant’s continuing focus on its vision for sustainability.

With the recent launch of the Green Machines 500ze, Tennant has again shaped the cleaning industry by introducing the world’s first Lithium-ion powered zero emissions, electric vacuum street sweeper.

This innovative product is widely recognized as providing a powerful but environmentally conscious sweeping option for enclosed or crowded pedestrian areas such as city centres.
