MINNEAPOLIS -- November 14, 2013

Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and
marketing solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, has
earned Gold level certification from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) for
their new Nobles Explorer and Tennant E-Series line of commercial carpet
extractors.

In addition, the EH5 Extractor, when used with Orbio™ Multi-Surface Cleaning
Solution, received Platinum honors. Tennant’s all new Q12 Multi-Surface Floor
Cleaner received Silver CRI Certification for carpet extractors, which
underscores its value and effectiveness as a versatile cleaner that can be
used on both hard and soft surfaces. The E-Series carpet extractors include a
variable 50-500 psi heated extractor (EH5), a 220 psi heated extractor (EH2),
a 220 psi unheated extractor (EC2), and a 120 psi heated extractor on a single
20-amp circuit (EH1).

The CRI Gold Certification (www.carpet-rug.org) process is rigorous and tests
products for: safe and efficient soil removal, water removal, texture
retention, rate of resoiling, pH safety, and no use of optical brighteners and
colorfastness.

Tennant Director of Distribution Lou Maylock said, “At Tennant, we value
listening to our customers and responding to their needs by providing products
that exceed expectations. Our challenge was to offer a line of carpet
extractors that were highly effective and efficient on all floor surfaces
while also reducing the noise pollution generated by many machines. We were
pleased to achieve the CRI Gold Certification level on all our new “E” series
canister extractors. It’s an important differentiator for us and reinforces
our commitment to creating a cleaner, safer, healthier world through
innovative solutions for our customers.” The introduction of these new models
brings quiet, durable and versatile products to the market.
