Our Story

In 1966 a small group of devoted parents met in the basement of a church in Auburn, California. Their goal was to find meaningful work for their adult children with disabilities – and in the process, help them move from dependence toward self-reliance.

Today, PRIDE Industries creates jobs for thousands of individuals with a wide range of abilities in its own business enterprises, and by partnering with others.

PRIDEClean® was first developed to provide a professional strength, environmentally responsible and budget-friendly alternative for our facilities customers who wanted to “go green” measurably and efficiently, without sacrificing quality. Each day, PRIDE services over 40 million square feet of facilities space across the country.

Frankly, we expected the accolades the products received, as the formulas were developed in partnership with the EPA’s Safer Choice program and successfully field-tested against some of the best products available.
