Craig Rissler and colleagues at Karcher's Englewood plant care for an iconic industry brand well-known in Europe with more growth in store here
It is unlikely that back in 1935, Alfred Kärcher knew he was planting the seeds for a $2.5 billion dollar company when he built his “Kärcher Salt Bath Furnace.”
‘Today, Kärcher is best known as a world leader in pressure washers for home and industry,” says Dan Spickard, vice president of operations. “We are also a diversified cleaning equipment company with factories throughout the world.”
Though there have been many iterations of the company, globally Kärcher is now one of the top companies in the industrial, commercial and residential cleaning-equipment business. In Colorado, however, it is focused primarily on commercial floor care.
“We have been at this location since 1980 and occupy about 260,000 square feet here,” says Craig Rissler, plant manager of the Englewood facility.
