CPI’s Chemical Division was established in 1982 to develop and market Clean Plus Hand Soap. Over the years, Clean Plus has earned a reputation as one of the highest quality, and most widely used, hand cleaners in the U.S. and Canadian markets. In 1987, Clean Plus, Inc. acquired Tarkelp Manufacturing, the respected developer and manufacturer of Tarkelp Hand Soap founded in 1931. Clean Plus, Inc. continues to manufacture and market Tarkelp Hand Soap, which remains one of the best industrial hand cleaners available. Since that time, CPI’s Chemical Division has continually researched and developed additional products (outlined below) with a focus on the removal of the hardest-to-remove materials.
