The Tennant Company was originally founded in Minneapolis, MN in 1860 as a small sawmill that produced wood products and flooring.

He focused the company's efforts on this motorized piece of floor equipment and the entire company became known for floor maintenance. The Tennant Company cleaned defense plants during World War II until it developed a floor sweeper that could reduce dust in factories.
