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 and fourth generations of the Baker family still own and operate MCC and continue 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.
