Kärcher, a family-owned enterprise, is the world’s leading provider of cleaning technology. With pressure washers, vacuums and steam cleaners, home and garden pumps, sweepers and floor scrubbers, vehicle washes, cleaning agents, dry ice blasters, drinking and waste water treatment plants, and water dispensers, it offers a range of innovative problem solutions. These include coordinated products, cleaning agents and accessories, along with advice and service.
Innovation has been a key element of the corporate culture ever since the company was set up in 1935. Alfred Kärcher, an engineer with a passion for invention, applied his inexhaustible creative drive and ingenuity to finding solutions to technical problems. Yet he never ignored his responsibility for his employees’ needs and concerns. That is why the company has always seen economic success and sustainable development as going hand in hand. Kärcher invests more than the average in research and development, in modern production methods and in high-quality apprenticeships and in-service training for its employees.
Over the past 30 years Kärcher has carried out over 90 cleaning projects on historic monuments, including the colonnades on St. Peter’s Square in Rome, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, the Statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro, the over 3,300-year-old Colossi of Memnon in Luxor, Upper Egypt, and the US Presidents’ heads on Mount Rushmore, South Dakota.
