foamyiQ™ from Spartan Chemical Company Wins Innovation Award

December 20, 2019

Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, today announced that its foamyiQ was named the 2019 innovation award winner in the dispenser category.

The ISSA Innovation Award Program serves as a platform for the world’s leading manufacturers exhibiting at ISSA Show North America to launch their product and service innovations in front of the entire commercial cleaning industry. Online voting takes place prior to show open for attendees to cast their vote, then, a panel of industry expert judges evaluate the entries using an extensive set of criteria. This year Spartan’s foamyiQ hand hygiene dispensing cartridge won in the dispenser category.

Spartan’s patented foamyiQ is the result of years of research, customer feedback and product engineering. By design, there are no costly dispensers to install, maintain or repair. And no refilling is necessary. When foamyiQ is empty, simply remove it from the bracket, and snap on a fresh, new one. It’s as simple as: attach, deplete, repeat.

“I am so proud of the team effort that went into the development and launch of foamyiQ,” said John Swigart, president, Spartan Chemical Company. “They say that necessity is the mother of invention and foamyiQ is an example of that. Hand hygiene dispensers are a real problem for distributors and facility managers alike…broken dispensers, dirty dispensers, the cost of maintaining and inventorying dispensers… something had to change. foamyiQ is the solution to the dispenser problem and truly an innovation for hand hygiene.”

foamyiQ is available through Spartan’s select distributor network. For more information or to find a distributor near you, visit
