Essential 8 for Industrial Packaging logo

What is Essential 8?

Essential 8 is a comprehensive approach that identifies opportunities in your facility to help you achieve cleaner, healthier, safer, more productive, and more sustainable facility management and operations.

Through an in-depth analysis by one of our representatives, we will uncover areas of improvement throughout the packaging process and the goods + equipment that will help you to protect your products while simplifying production, keeping your people safe, and reducing total costs.


We’ve built our reputation as industry leading experts in cleaning for commercial, educational, institutional, and industrial environments.

We are your single source for all facility supply needs, from the basic every day items to specialized products, such as ride-on auto scrubbers and no-touch restroom accessories. Our customized cleaning solutions will perfectly suit your needs.


We are committed to being an industry leader in promoting responsible business practices that support more sustainable communities.

With our own LEED® Accredited Professionals and CIMS-GB ISSA Certification experts on staff, we offer cleaning product solutions, best practices training, and advanced procurement platforms to support clean and green building environments.


We have a proven track record of being there for our clients when they need us most, whether it’s a crisis that demands a last-minute delivery, an all-night training, a timely equipment repair, or a bilingual training session.

We go above and beyond because our customers deserve it, and we won’t stop until your needs are met. That’s the BradyPLUS Way.
