"We are proud to partner with Walmart, the first major global retailer
to introduce autonomous cleaning robots to deliver operational
efficiency, cleaning performance and customer value on a broad scale
across a retail platform," said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's
president and chief executive officer. "This new step in our long and
valued relationship with Walmart exemplifies our deep commitment to both
innovation and meeting the needs of our most sophisticated customers. We
are excited about our combined potential."

John Crecelius, Walmart Senior VP of Central Operations, commented,
"This cleaner is another great example of technology helping make the
Walmart job better—rather than riding on a floor-cleaning machine for
several hours, the associate is now working with robotics to complete
their duties. The machine allows our associates more time to focus on
completing other tasks within the role, but most importantly, it frees
them up to serve our customers better."
