Ed Sisk, President (Founder)
Ed founded XL North in 2000 after recognizing the needs of the flooring manufacturers, to provide better cleaning chemistries, more efficient processes and more effective training, to flooring maintenance providers globally. Whether it was Carpet, VCT, LVT, Wood, Rubber, Tile & Grout or Vinyl , by working closely with the makers of the flooring products and listening to the concerns they have regarding “long-term appearance retention through proper maintenance”, a complete line of formulas were developed over many years of trials and tribulations. Ed is proud to be partnered with Textile Rubber and Chemical Co and his association with some of the finest and hardest working chemical engineers on the planet. He credits the success of this business to the men and women within the company, who never stop imaging and implementing a better solution, a better process or better approach to making our world a little cleaner for a lot longer.
