Minnesota Chemical Company (MCC) has been keeping things clean since 1915 when founder R.P. Baker decided the Upper Midwest needed a more local source for laundry and dry cleaning supplies.
In the early decades, MCC distributed national brands and also had an active soap manufacturing plant. These high quality natural soap products were sold to laundries, and they were also distributed as plant cleaners to creameries and dairies. With the dawn of synthetic detergent products, MCC discontinued the soap operation and expanded offerings to include laundry and dry cleaning equipment, parts and service.
Today, the third generation of the Baker family still owns and operates MCC, and continues to focus on serving Midwestern clients. The MCC is proud to offer best-of-class supplies, equipment, parts and service for on-premise laundries, dry cleaners and coin operated laundries.
