Products: From the company’s beginnings in 1939 as a wire sponge manufacturer in Rhode Island, ACS has grown its product offerings. It is a global organization with corporate and R&D functions in the USA and manufacturing operations in Mexico and China. Vertical integration has taken the company to five facilities with almost 4,000 employees. Its Cleaning Products Division includes hand pads, stainless scrubbers, sponges, soap pads, grill screens and grill bricks. It produces a full range of mops, brooms and brushes. Its floor maintenance line includes non woven floor pads, steel wool floor pads, sand screens and many specialty floor pads. ACS has achieved UL validation regarding 100 percent recycled material in all of its nonwoven hand and floor pads, from post-consumer to post-industrial. In 2017, ACS acquired ETC and Treleoni, incorporating both into the cleaning products jan/san portion of the business. ACS floor pad sales have now doubled as a result of these acquisitions.
