About Us

Meriden Industrial Laundry, Inc. was founded in 1957, by Max 'Muddy' Grossman, to process industrial fibers and waste for the recycling industry. As one of the first companies in the United States to provide entrance mats and a dust mop service to industry and became an innovator and leader in this new field. While this type of mat provided excellent dirt retention, it did have its shortcomings. The colors were limited and bland and there were no safety borders on the edges. By Mid 1980s, the company had moved into a new facility enabling it to provide its growing customer base with the best quality and service in the industry.

This time period also saw the introduction of the entrance mat as we know it today. It consists of twist/nylon fiber bonded to nitrile rubber. These mats are heavy duty, non-skid, and contain non-fade colors. Magnakleen supplies these mats in 6 standard colors and 6 standard sizes up to 5x10. A large inventory is maintained at all times to accommodate our customers needs.

By 1990, the industry introduced many new products. Among them are outdoor rubber scrape mats, anti-fatigue mats and rubber kitchen mats. Magnakleen consistently stayed on the cutting edge of these innovations, providing all of the before mentioned products and more, including: Air Fresheners, Wiping Towels, Bath Towels, Soap Dspensers, Kitchen Towels, Matting Installations, Aprons, Logo Mats, Microfiber Products and Purell Hand Sanitizer.

In 2010, Magnakleen began our corporate apparel division. We can handle all your embroidery and silk screening needs in house. We digitize and help create your logos quickly and turn them into shirts, hats and other personalized products

As we look to the future, we at Magnakleen will do well to look at the past and reflect on more than 50 years of innovation, dedication, and customer appreciation. We promise to our customers and ourselves to strive to, not only maintain, but build on these accomplishments.
