In 1979, Kleen Machine, Inc. was formed as a partnership between Russell Bloch and Dave Lafler. At that time, Kleen Machine was an industrial cleaning company, providing hydro blasting and steam cleaning services to the railroads, cereal plants, and maintenance cleans for commercial exhaust systems.
By 1986, Kleen Machine shifted to offering sales and service for a broad range of hydro blasting and steam cleaning equipment.
In 1989, Kleen Machine became KMI Cleaning Solutions and began manufacturing specialty cleaning compounds for the transportation industry.
In 1995, KMI began offering chemistry and consulting services to the bulk transport tank cleaning industry.
In 2015, KMI acquired Advanced Formulas, Inc. in Houston, Texas to further expand our offerings throughout the Gulf Coast and West Coast regions.
