InterClean acquires Modern Wash

Feb. 28, 2020
Acquisition expands new product offerings, complements company’s existing transportation trailer/container cleaning

InterClean Equipment recently acquired Polson MT-based Modern Wash Systems and Solutions, a specialty manufacturer of automatic wash machines for the interior of transportation trailers and containers. 

This acquisition adds new product capability for InterClean and addresses current FDA legislation requiring food transporters to regularly clean and sanitize trailers, InterClean said. This new line also augments the existing cleaning and anti-corrosion solutions InterClean currently offers for the transportation industry.

“The Modern Wash system is a natural expansion of our existing InterClean product lineup,” said Greg Harvey, CEO of InterClean. “Its automated reporting system ensures commercial fleets are always clean, sanitized and in compliance with current government rules and regulations. This will greatly minimize operator inconvenience and costs associated with compliance, thus improving our customers’ bottom line.”

InterClean said the acquisition furthers its strategy to offer a diversified line of wash equipment for heavy-duty vehicle cleaning, and will enable the company to offer Modern Wash products to an expanded customer base through its sales and distribution network.

The interior trailer wash system available through InterClean has been adopted by many prominent food processing and transportation companies throughout the US, InterClean maintained. Customizable to meet site-specific needs, the system can be installed on a dock or on a self-contained, moveable stand, allowing it to wash the interior of trailers or containers.

The machine also can be equipped with an auto-start feature to eliminate the need for an operator. Simply back the trailer up to the loading dock and the machine will launch automatically. The rinse and sanitizing cycles can be completed in as little as 2 minutes for a typical trailer, the company said.
