Continued Leadership over 40 Years
MPW Industrial Services is a leading provider of technology-based services to industrial, manufacturing and process facilities in the United States and Canada. With headquarters in Hebron, Ohio, MPW has over 35 years experience rapidly responding to customer needs from our network of more than 40 offices. MPW's beginning, however, was much smaller.
In 1972, a young entrepreneur, Monte Black, formed a company to provide truck-washing services in central Ohio. He was the only employee of the infant company—he worked seven days a week, first selling and then performing on-site washing services for tractors, trailers, surface mining equipment and structures. While he had entered what was even then a highly competitive industry, he was convinced that hard work, innovation and a commitment to exceed customer expectations would enable him to succeed.
He believed that if he "went the second mile" to meet customer needs, his infant company would grow. And it did —adding Waterblasting, Ultra-High Pressure Waterblasting and Cutting, Industrial Vacuuming, Chemical Cleaning, proprietary Container Cleaning and Water Purification Services.
Only one large industrial cleaning company still retains its original management—MPW.
The same entrepreneurial spirit and customer-driven commitment that characterized MPW in 1972 still serves as its driving force today. Monte Black, now chief executive officer, still plays a very hands-on role in the operations of the company, interacting with customers and MPW field personnel to ensure that MPW still exceeds customer expectations.
MPW now is based on our 5 Corner Stones "The MPW Difference"
