About The Cimex Company

The Cimex line of equipment dates back to the early 1930’s when the three headed, counter planetary motion machine was originally commissioned by the Royal British Navy for use on the decks of their fleet.

The reason this machine exists was due to the pulling associated with single headed buffing equipment of the time. When at sea, specifically on the deck of a large military ship, keeping your footing is paramount lest you end up in the drink.

As such, the counter rotating motion was born. Our line of floor cleaning and resurfacing equipment still runs on the same principal employed some 80 years ago. The patented motion applies constant pressure to surfaces both flat and bumpy alike, all while maintaining it’s position. Turn the machine on and everything except the business end stays perfectly still.

You may never use your Cimex machine while sailing, but you can certainly enjoy the same applied ingenuity that saved countless sailors today.

“When at sea, specifically on the deck of a large military ship, keeping your footing is paramount lest you end up in the drink.”

Since then the Cimex brand has developed into the dependable machines known today. Until recently however, Cimex’s three headed approach remained overseas. We have now been serving the North American market since 2003.

Over the past decade, our unique brand of machinery has enjoyed steady and remarkable growth. The Cimex Carpet Machine is considered top banana by cleaning professionals utilizing the low moisture encapsulation method. In a similar realm, the Cimex Floor Scrubber stands as a fantastic choice for those looking to clean and/or polish virtually every form of hard flooring.

Our Cimex Diamond Finisher and its Modular System are perfect for grinding and polishing applications. For more aggressive removal and scaraification, look no further than our Cimex Surface Scarifier. Lastly, the Cimex Escalator Cleaner is recognized as a leader in the escalator/travelator niche cleaning market.

“The Cimex Carpet Machine is considered top banana by cleaning professionals utilizing the low moisture encapsulation method.”

As the North American division of Cimex, we proudly organize and support the sales of commercial grade floor cleaning and surface preparation machinery. Cimex counter planetary equipment is offered via our flourishing network of dealers and repair centers, of which is headquartered in beautiful Tallmadge, Ohio.
