YPSILANTI, Mich. -- InterClean Equipment has acquired Modern Wash Systems and Solutions. Based in Polson, Montana, a Modern Wash is a specialty manufacturer of automatic wash machines for the interior of transportation trailers and containers. 

This acquisition adds a new product capability for InterClean and addresses current FDA legislation requiring food transporters to regularly clean and sanitize their trailers. This new line also augments the existing cleaning and anti-corrosion solution portfolio that InterClean currently offers for the transportation industry.

"[Modern Wash's] automated reporting system ensures commercial fleets are always clean, sanitized and in compliance with current government rules and regulations," says Greg Harvey, CEO, InterClean. "This will greatly minimize operator inconvenience and costs associated with compliance, thus improving our customers' bottom line."

The interior trailer wash system has been adopted by many prominent food processing and transportation companies throughout the U.S.

The system is customizable to meet site-specific needs, and can be installed on a dock or on a self-contained, moveable stand allowing it to wash the interior of trailers or containers.

The machine can also be equipped with an auto-start feature to eliminate the need for an operator. The trailer is backed up to the loading dock and the machine will launch automatically.

The rinse and sanitizing cycles can be completed in as little as two minutes.
