The shop towels absorb solvent far better than any product we have purchased in the past.

Before using ITU AbsorbTech, we purchased shop towels on a roll. We use a petroleum product in our manufacturing business; the shop towels from Fastenal did not absorb the oil well causing our employees to use several towels per job. The shop towels at ITU AbsorbTech absorb the solvent we use in our manufacturing far… Read more “The shop towels absorb solvent far better than any product we have purchased in the past.”

ITU came in and was able to work WITH me. Rather than attempt to up-sell me into a program which would be… Read more “Rather than attempt to up-sell me, they let me start very sparingly- and grow.”

One less thing I need to worry about.

Before ITU AbsorbTech we used old clothing as shop rags and to absorb excel oil. It was neither professional or efficient. ITU AbsorbTech takes, specifically Dan K. takes very good care of us and stays on top of our needs on the shop floor. One less thing I need to worry about.
