Unger was founded in 1964 by Henry and Barbara Unger in the attic of the home of Barbara's grandmother in Hamburg, Germany. While the original intent was to manufacture window cleaning products, the company soon expanded its product line in order to become the market leader in the Sanitary Supply and Retail Cleaning Fields. Adopting this as the company's mission, Unger strives to produce high quality, innovative tools that help professionals clean more productively and safely, as well as offer superior customer service to both end-users and distributors. Today, Unger is an international company and has been manufacturing professional cleaning tools for more than 40 years. It has offices and manufacturing facilities in the United States and Germany, and sales offices in the United Kingdom, and India. Unger now provides innovative cleaning solutions to more than 80 countries worldwide.
