It is a pleasure to welcome you to the second annual Cleaner Times Sourcebook! The Pressure Washing Manufacturers and Suppliers Listings on page 6 provide quick and easy access to many of the companies that can assist individuals in making a successful living in the pressure washing industry. In addition, there are expanded manufacturers’ and suppliers’ listings that allow a company to stand out with a box around their listing—logo, physical address, phone and fax number, website, and e-mail—as well as 20 words of text. The Pressure Washing Manu-facturers and Suppliers Category Listings help you locate pressure washers and accessories offered by various companies.
This issue contains helpful reference material. The Cleaning Equipment Trade Association (CETA) profiles their 13 members on the CETA board of directors for 2017–2018. It discusses what motivated them to serve on the board, what they have learned from this service, what they are looking forward to the most in 2018, and a summary of their professional background.
Starting in the February issue, each of the CETA board members will be profiled and will tell us a bit about their company, their view of the industry, and their philosophy of doing business as well as what they enjoy most about their work and their free time interests.
The Waterjet Technology Association and Industrial & Municipal Cleaning Association (WJTA-IMCA) summarizes their 2017 conference/expo, detailing who attended, educational topics offered, and plans for 2018 on page 52. There is also a couple of paragraphs dedicated to new members serving on the board of directors as well as returning members.
As we move into 2018, Cleaner Times desires for it to be a good and profitable year for the industry, and we look forward to hearing from you. Happy New Year!
