Accelerating Robotic Floor Cleaning Innovation through Exclusive Technology Partnership

Tennant Company and Brain Corp Sign Exclusive Technology Agreement To Accelerate Robotic Floor Cleaning Innovation and Adoption

Tennant Company and Brain Corp jointly announce an exclusive technology agreement to accelerate the development and adoption of the next generation of robots in the floor-cleaning industry.

This agreement builds on the historically successful partnership between the two companies and seeks to accelerate innovation. It is expected that Tennant’s purpose-built robotic equipment driven by Brain Corp’s next-generation and AI-enabled autonomous navigation technology will improve the customer return on investment and enable more customers to invest in robotic cleaning.

“Our customers have always relied on Tennant for equipment innovation and aftermarket support to address key business challenges such as labour shortages and cost pressures,” said Tennant Company President and CEO Dave Huml. “We are excited to expand our existing partnership to dramatically accelerate the transition to robotic cleaning and drive adoption in new segments of our markets. By combining cleaning intelligence and automation, we are poised to lead the disruption that AI-enabled robotic technology will bring to our industry.”

In the second quarter of 2024, Tennant will launch the new X4 ROVR, the company’s first purpose-built Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR). With this agreement, the partnership seeks to accelerate the build-out of a portfolio of robotic floor-cleaning solutions to cover more cleaning applications and enhance customers’ return on investment to drive adoption.

“This partnership further aligns two companies driven by a shared purpose: to elevate productivity and efficiency, and provide essential support for janitorial teams facing understaffing and overwhelming demand,” said Brain Corp CEO David Pinn. “At Brain Corp, we envision a world where people’s lives are made safer, easier, more productive, and more fulfilling with the help of robots, and I believe this expanded partnership will supercharge this into reality.”

“Innovation and customer focus are a significant part of Tennant’s identity,” said Huml. “This partnership amplifies our commitment to innovation as well as Brain Corp’s position as a pioneer in AI and automation applied to cleaning equipment. We are excited to unlock the full potential of next-generation robotic floor cleaning solutions that deliver true business value to customers who use our AMR equipment today and those who are waiting eagerly for an AMR solution that they can leverage for their businesses.”

With this agreement, Tennant invested $32 million in Brain Corp and Fay West, Tennant Company Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will join the Brain Corp board of directors.
