Business Segments Description

United States Cleaning & Sanitizing Segment

The “United States Cleaning & Sanitizing” segment is comprised of seven divisions which provide cleaning and sanitizing services to United States markets.

Institutional: Our Institutional Division is our largest division and sells specialized cleaners and sanitizers for washing dishes, glassware, flatware, foodservice utensils and kitchen equipment (“warewashing”), for on-premise laundries (typically used by hotel and health care customers) and for general housekeeping functions, as well as dishwasher racks and related kitchen sundries to the foodservice, lodging, educational and healthcare industries and water filters to the foodservice industry. The Institutional Division also provides pool and spa treatment programs for commercial and hospitality customers and, through its Facilitec business, provides rooftop grease filter products and kitchen exhaust cleaning services for restaurants and other foodservice operations. The Institutional Division also manufactures and markets various chemical dispensing device systems, which are made available to customers, to dispense the Company’s cleaners and sanitizers. In addition, the Institutional Division markets primarily to smaller and mid-size customer units, a program comprised of energy-efficient dishwashing machines, detergents, rinse additives and sanitizers, including full machine maintenance.

We believe we are the leading supplier of chemical warewashing products to institutions in the United States.

The Institutional Division sells its products and services primarily through Company-employed field sales-and-service personnel. However, to a significant degree, we also utilize independent, third-party foodservice distributors to market and sell our products to smaller accounts or accounts which purchase through food distributors. We provide the same service to accounts served by food distributors as to direct customers.

Kay: Our Kay Division (which consists of certain wholly-owned subsidiaries of Ecolab Inc.) supplies chemical cleaning and sanitizing products primarily to the quick-service restaurant industry. This includes traditional fast-food restaurants but also other retail locations where “fast food” is prepared and served, such as convenience stores, airport and shopping center kiosks and other public venues typically serviced by national or regional restaurant chains.  Kay also sells cleaning and sanitizing products to the food retail (i.e., grocery store) industry. Kay’s products include specialty and general purpose hard surface cleaners, degreasers, sanitizers, polishes, hand care products and assorted cleaning tools. Products are sold under the “Kay” brand or the customer’s private label. In addition, Kay supports its product sales with employee training programs and technical support designed to meet the special needs of its customers. Kay’s customized cleaning and sanitation programs are designed to reduce labor costs and product usage while increasing sanitation levels, cleaning performance, equipment life and safety levels.

Kay employs a direct field sales force which primarily calls upon national and regional quick-service restaurant and food retail chains and franchisees, although the sales are made to distributors who supply the chain or franchisee’s units.

We believe that our Kay Division is the leading supplier of chemical cleaning and sanitizing products to the traditional quick-service restaurant industry in the United States. While Kay’s customer base has been growing, Kay’s business is largely dependent upon a limited number of major quick-service restaurant chains and franchisees.

We believe that we are one of the leading suppliers of cleaning and sanitizing products to the dairy plant, dairy farm, food, meat and poultry, and beverage/brewery processor industries in the United States.

Textile Care: Our Textile Care Division provides chemical laundry products and proprietary dispensing systems, as well as related services, to large industrial and commercial laundries. Typically these customers process a minimum of 1,000,000 pounds of linen each year and include free-standing laundry plants used by institutions such as hotels, restaurants and healthcare facilities as well as industrial and textile rental laundries. The Division also serves the shirt laundry market, typically comprised of smaller laundry units. Products and services include laundry cleaning and specialty products and related dispensing equipment, which are marketed primarily through a Company-employed sales force and, to a lesser extent, through independent, third-party distributors. The Division’s programs are designed to meet our customer’s need for exceptional cleaning, while extending the useful life of linen and reducing the customer’s overall operating cost.

Professional Products: The Professional Products Division provides a broad range of janitorial and infection prevention/healthcare offerings to the janitorial and medical markets in the United States. Effective January 2004, we reorganized our businesses serving janitorial and healthcare customers by splitting the Professional Products group into two divisions, Professional Products and Healthcare.  Professional Products’ proprietary janitorial products (detergents, general purpose cleaners, carpet care, furniture polishes, disinfectants, floor care products, hand soaps and odor counteractants) are sold primarily under the brand name “Airkem.” These products are sold primarily through a network of independent, third-party distributors, supported by a Company-employed sales force. Healthcare’s proprietary infection prevention/healthcare products (skin care, disinfectants and instrument sterilants) are sold primarily under the “Huntington” brand name.

Vehicle Care: Our Vehicle Care Division provides vehicle appearance products which include soaps, polishes, wheel and tire treatments and air fresheners.  Products are sold to vehicle rental, fleet and consumer car wash and detail operations. Brand names utilized by the Vehicle Care Division include Blue CoralÒ, Black MagicÒ and Rain-XÒ.

Water Care Services: Our Water Care Services Division supplements our “Circle the Customer - Circle the Globe” strategy by offering water treatment programs that are critical to our customer base. Water Care Services provides water and wastewater treatment products, services and systems for commercial/institutional customers (full service hotels, cruise ships, hospitals, healthcare, commercial real estate, government, and commercial laundries), food and beverage customers (dairies, meat, poultry, food processing and beverage) and other light industry.  Water Care Services works closely with the our Institutional, Textile Care and Food & Beverage Divisions to offer customized water care strategies to their accounts that have water care needs, primarily to treat water used in heating and cooling systems and manufacturing processes and to treat wastewater.

United States Other Services Segment

The “United States Other Services” segment is comprised of two business units:  Pest Elimination and GCS Service. In general, these businesses provide service or equipment which can augment or extend our product offering to our business customers as a part of our “Circle the Customer” approach.

Pest Elimination: Our Pest Elimination Division provides services for the detection, elimination and prevention of pests to restaurants, food and beverage processors, educational and healthcare facilities, hotels, quick-service restaurant and grocery operations and other institutional and commercial customers. These services are sold and performed by Company-employed sales and service personnel. In addition, through our EcoSure Food Safety Management business, the Division provides customized on-site evaluations, training and quality assurance services to foodservice operations.

GCS Service: GCS provides commercial kitchen parts and equipment repair services including parts distribution. GCS offers these services to restaurant and other foodservice operations, while providing warranty service for equipment manufacturers.  In addition, GCS offers parts at a wholesale level to repair services companies and end users.

International Cleaning & Sanitizing Segment

The Company conducts business in approximately 70 countries outside of the United States through wholly-owned subsidiaries or, in the case of China, Israel and Venezuela, through majority-owned joint ventures with local partners. In other countries, selected products are sold by our export operations to distributors, agents or licensees, although the volume of those sales is not significant in terms of our overall revenues. Our largest International operations are located in Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Canada, with smaller operations in Africa and the Middle East.

In general, the businesses conducted internationally are similar to those conducted in the United States, although we customize our products and services to meet unique local requirements. The businesses which are similar to the United States’ Institutional and Food & Beverage businesses are the largest businesses in our International operations. They are conducted in virtually all our International locations and, compared to the United States, constitute a larger portion of the overall business. Kay also has sales in a number of International locations.  A significant portion of Kay’s International sales are to international units of United States-based quick-service restaurant chains. Consequently, a substantial portion of Kay’s international sales are made either to domestic or internationally-located third-party distributors who serve these chains.
