“At Urnex, we think about ourselves as not just making cleaning products or chemicals, but as helping our customers make better tasting coffee.”
Hello my name is Joshua Dick, and I am the President and CEO of Urnex Brands.
Urnex was founded by my great grandfather in 1936. Today, we are sold in over 70 countries around the world. We’re specialists in making cleaning products for coffee machines. The range of our products is seen over here and we have everything from very traditional powders for cleaning espresso machines to tablets for fully automatic coffee machines. We make a line of milk system cleaners both in liquid and, now a very new product for us, a tablet based milk system cleaner.
One of the other products you may have heard of is our Grindz, which is our patented grinder cleaner. It is the only product in the world that is a coffee-bean shaped tablet that all you do is grind to clean away the coffee (oils).
Everything else in our line includes products for filter coffee, home coffee machines, and descalers. In general, anything you can imagine needing in a coffee retail environment.
At Urnex, we think about ourselves as not just making cleaning products or chemicals, but as helping our customers make better tasting coffee, and that’s really our focus. We want everything we do to be of value: cleaning away old coffee oil so that the coffee can taste its best.
