Innovation and invention has been at the heart of Scot Young Research since its beginnings in 1954.

Founder and current chairman Scot Young established a window cleaning company after emigrating from Scotland to Canada as a teenager, before moving into contract cleaning there and in the UK.

In 1985 the switch was made into manufacturing, influenced by the company’s service roots in cleaning. Game-changing products it has introduced include:

  • the window washing squeegee 
  • the geared mopbucket and wringer
  • ergonomic mopping combo
  • Interchange handle
  • colour coding
  • ‘Kentucky’ style mophead

Our patented products can now be found across the world, and are the choice of leading QSRs, supermarkets, blue chip companies, hotels and hospitals.

We have bases in the UK, North America and China.
