Cleanco direct drive truckmounts were at one time a nice rig, I don't know now. Esteem has the classic ninga portable line (the old century 400 design). Great unit. It makes me feel so dam old thinking about all the manufacturers that are gone now.

What exactly is a Fibreclean?
Carpet cleaning supplier. When they opened up here they brought a higher level of professionalism. Good products, equipment and training as well as customer support. Unfortunately, they were bought out by another supplier and must have signed a do not compete clause or something. The next closest one is 4 hours away.

Unfortunately, Cleanco and I have never had much of a relationship. They, rather half heartedly, paid for me to go to St. Petersburg last year, but I think that had more to do with TCS than Cleanco. They never showed any interest in promoting their brand.

Their TMs are good though.

10 years from now there will be Legend Brands, Interlink, Jon Don, and Butler. That's it.

Not a joke.

If they try to monopolize the market and keep jacking up their prices, as they've been doing, I would think it will create an incentive for competition.
I buy as much as I can from smaller suppliers. I like to support indepents as much as possible. Keeps the big guys working hard to get my business.

I fear that day ! Jon Don was once a low cost provider, now they are just another over-priced "Interlink". In fact Armosco / interlink could buy Jon Don and screw it up too. There will alway be a ton of mom & pop suppliers as the investment required to open the doors is very low and the margins are high. Put together $150-200 grand and you can open a supply house and compete quite well. Plus you need less people than a 2-3 truck carpet cleaning business.

In my market we have lost 3 suppliers that I once bought from in the last 7-8 years or so. Now there is a Interlink 2 miles from my home and I hardly ever go there. So over priced you feel like you are being financially sodomized. If I need something right away due to my own poor planning / delay in ordering I drive the 56 miles round trip just to avoid Interlink and grab 2-3 cases. That can take 2 hours in traffic or an hour if you hit it just right. Most of my stuff is ordered in bulk from places where I get free shipping. Having a bit more tied up in inventory is worth it's weight in gold.

Hopefully they will open another fibreclean in the vancouver area again. Last one here was bought out and disappeared. Always need more competition
I heard from a little birdie that you might get your wish Ron..... we shall see what happens over the next few months. There is a plan in play to expand the brand.

Does this mean cleanco's will be at all interlinks now? Along with the cds and the SS direct drive?

Could be a big deal for them if played right.

Anyone else sell all three?
