In 2016 we pushed hard toward Tennant Company’s goals of reaching $1 Billion in sales and achieving 12% operating profit margin by continuing our focus on the long game. Like all enduring companies, Tennant Company continuously reviews and renews our strategy to align our business with what’s important to our customers and with what will make Tennant stronger. To this end, in 2016, we added Sustainable Enterprise as one of our Strategic Priorities. We’ve seen top- and bottom-line benefits from embedding sustainability considerations in our business processes, from ground-up product development to elimination of waste and reduction of energy consumption. We continue to press forward with our vision to ‘create a cleaner, safer and healthier world.'
