AMERICAN SANITATION INC:

SERVING RECORD NUMBERS IN CHALLENGING TIMES Founded in 2006 in Napa, California, American Sanitation Inc. serves one of the fastest growing and most dynamic communities in the nation. The Napa Valley has been known for its wine for over a century. But its fame peaked around the same time that American Sanitation Inc. filed its papers of incorporation, and the timing could not have been more fortuitous for this sanitation company.

n 2018, the wine tourism industry in the area alone brought in more than $2.2 billion.

With numbers like that, Napa needs a sanitation company to serve restaurants and events, and ASI was there to answer the call. ASI is a full-service septic and portable toilet company serving the residential and commercial needs of special events, construction sites, vineyard operations, and everexpanding residential zones. Because the competition in this part of the country is steep, ASI is able to make ground in its effort to deliver competitive pricing. Their office staff, drivers, and sales reps are all encouraged to deliver the best prices to their customers. With an enormous service area covering one of the busiest and most heavily populated areas in the country, they have their work cut out for them. ASI's service area covers most of the San Francisco Bay, (all of the inner bay) the majority of Sacramento, and stretches along the coast from Gualala to southern Fremont and northern San Jose. In case you're not familiar with the area, that encompasses three major metropolitan locations, continued on page 26

AMERICAN SANITATION INC'S PRIMARY SERVICE CATEGORIES The first unique value proposition ASI touts is pickup and delivery all over northern California, which is amazing. Their primary service area is already huge and highly metropolitan. But their full-sized trucks are tooled out to carry service to almost any California location north of the San Francisco bay. It must be said that their full-size lorry tankers indicate that these trips are long, complicated, and involved, and their drivers nod grimly at the implication. But this makes ASI uniquely prepared to carry out the biggest, longest hauls over the largest functional service area of any septic service company we've covered. Their second unique value proposition is full-service solutions. There's little doubt that they can offer full-service solutions to their primary service area continued on page 28

INDEX as described initially. But if they are able in practice to extend their full list of services to the entirety of northern California, it would be incredible. But when it comes to serving the septic needs of companies and domestic customers in Sacramento and inner bay San Francisco, ASI is certainly more than adequately equipped. Finally, we come to their portable toilet rentals. Of course, the nature of the region demands that they offer the full range of standard, to ADA-compliant units, luxury models, and VIP portable toilets. With their basic portable toilets, bathroom trailers, and VIP units, they serve construction sites, events, and much more. Of course, their VIP units are completely solar-powered and require no electric or water hookups to function.

Safety is the first and foremost consideration in business today. Slips, trips and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents, which cause 15% of all accidental deaths.

Coxreels is excited to announce the new addition to our safety line: High-Visibility Safety Hose Reels. Power up your safety with high visibility hose by Coxreels. When not in use your hose and cable is safely retracted on your Coxreels reel, but when in use the hose can become a hazard. With the addition of high visibility hose to your hose reel, awareness and visibility are increased to create the safest environment possible. Featured on P, SH, and T series, Hi-Vis hose is hybrid bright

yellow hose with a white glossy stripe available in 3/8"and 1/2". Hybrid hoses (PVC + Rubber blend) offer similar performance to rubber with the weight of PVC, combining positive features of both hose types. They have increased hose flexibility and better low temperature behavior while maintaining strength and toughness. With enhanced kink resistance and reduced coil memory, they lay flat for a reduced trip hazard potential. Hybrid hoses also feature a less sticky jacket surface than PVC for better stacking performance and an improved non-marring quality. With a working pressure of 300PSI, this hose is perfect to be used in applications involving air and water. Adding EZ-Coil® controlled retraction and Hi-Vis hose to your Coxreels reel, it will create the maximum safety environment for your workplace. As the industry leader in hose, cord and cable reels, Coxreels is making a commitment to provide our customers with the ultimate and most complete, diverse line of reels and reeling accessories.
