History

CLEANING SOLUTIONS, REGULAR SERVICE FOR MORE THAN 75 YEARS

In 1938, James D. Robinson conceived the idea of an Automatic Chlorination System. Simply put, equipment installed in customer accounts would automatically dispense a proper amount of chemical sanitizer into rinse water.  HOME PAGE AC 75th LOGOLater that same year the automatic chlorination system became Auto-Chlor System, founded in Memphis, Tennessee.

In 1939, James D. Robinson patented his Automatic Chlorination device and set out to revolutionize warewashing and sanitation methods.  In 1944, Auto-Chlor System became one of the founding members of the National Standards Foundation (NSF) and remains a contributing member to this day.

WE PIONEERED LOW-TEMP WAREWASHING

In 1952, after years of developing and patenting revolutionary dispensing systems for manual warewashing, Auto-Chlor System began to apply that innovative thinking into the production of dishmachines. In 1954, the first Auto-Chlor System Low Energy dishmachines were introduced to customers.

EXPANDED INTO LAUNDRY AND HI-TEMP WAREWASHING
