Cleaning Large Spaces Has Never Been More Efficient, Consistent and Effective

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of solutions to reinvent how the world cleans, today announced the launch of its newest and largest autonomous floor cleaning machine, the T16AMR Robotic Floor Scrubber. This industrial-grade automated scrubber is the third AMR in Tennant’s lineup and the industry’s first AMR built on an industrial scrubber platform. It’s ideal for logistics and manufacturing facilities – allowing for consistent, efficient cleaning while reducing total cost of ownership. T16AMR units are available now for pre-order in North America and will begin shipping within the U.S. and Canada in April.

The T16AMR robotic cleaning machine is the latest in Tennant’s world-class AMR line that operates in complex, real-world environments without direct operator control. This is especially valuable since staff shortages and increased cleaning protocols may overextend lean maintenance teams. The T16AMR ensures consistent and efficient cleaning with supervisor notification of route completion and weekly reporting.

“Throughout its history, Tennant Company has maintained a sharp focus on advancing the cleaning industry by aggressively pursuing new technologies. Tennant continues this legacy with the introduction of our largest autonomous machine to help our customers increase their cleaning efficiency and maximize employee resources,” said David Strohsack, Vice President, Global Product Management and Marketing for Tennant Company.

The T16AMR is powered by BrainOS®, an advanced artificial intelligence and robotic technology platform, from Tennant partner Brain Corp. The T16AMR includes unmatched support with Tennant’s AMR Customer Success and Service Team, which is available to assist customers nationwide.

Tennant launched its first autonomous solution in 2018, with the introduction of the T7AMR Scrubber. In 2020, it followed with the T380AMR. The machine allows for cleaning narrow aisles, making tighter turns and smaller U-turns – great for smaller spaces. With the introduction of the T16AMR, Tennant now offers an exceptional solution for customers with a larger footprint.
