Why you should work with BFK Solutions
As a manufacturer, you need value-added critical cleaning to get the right surface. BFK Solutions, the industry leading experts and educators in critical cleaning, evaluates your product, your facility, your requirements.
We show you practical, achievable pathways to in-house or outsourced cleaning options, including aqueous, solvent, “non-chemical” processes. We are not in the business of selling cleaning agents or cleaning equipment and do not accept commissions from suppliers. This is great for your business because we get beyond the ‘sales-hype’ and do not restrict your choices to a few products.
In 1994, I founded BFK Solutions; and, to this day, it has been fun and challenging to be “The Cleaning Lady.” From aerospace, to medical, to metal stamping, to nanotechnology, manufacturers face more and more cleaning challenges; the problems of the 1990’s were only the beginning. Because cleaning involves lots of variables and interaction with surfaces, my “interdepartmental” background turns out to be useful – and I’m not afraid to tackle thorny projects.
I joined BFK Solutions just over a decade ago. Initially, part of me thought critical cleaning was unintelligible, something based in manufacturing mythology. Then, Barbara got me involved in editing the first edition of “Handbook for Critical Cleaning.” Her actual words were: “If you don’t help me edit this thing, I’m going to toss the computer with the manuscript out the window.” To avoid an unplanned capital expenditure, I began reading. I realized, critical cleaning actually is like rocket science. It’s rational; it can be explained to others. As a teacher, I enjoy helping you understand critical cleaning and seeing you achieve truly effective manufacturing.
