(SANDY, UTAH) ProTeam®, the company internationally recognized for innovative vacuum technology, is featured in an educational video developed by ManageMen® for the United States Postal Service (USPS). The video, “Polluting vs. Cleaning: The USPS Team Cleaning Pilot”, won a Bronze Telly Award in the category of Employee Communications from the 35th Annual Telly Awards Competition based in New York, N.Y.

USPS hired ManageMen in 2012 to evaluate their nationwide cleaning program using a sampling of 10 different sites. Based on their findings, ManageMen recommended that USPS adopt a team cleaning approach. “Polluting vs. Cleaning: The USPS Team Cleaning Pilot” is a before and after snapshot of the current nationwide transition to a team cleaning system.

“ProTeam products are a perfect match for team cleaning programs because of their efficient removal of health-harming pollutants from the indoor environment,” said ProTeam Vice President of Sales Rich Steinberg. “This video will be a valuable educational tool to teach USPS custodians the importance of cleaning for health.”

The Telly Awards was founded in 1978 and is today the premier award honoring excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials. The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

ManageMen also won a second Bronze Telly Award for their video “How to be a Restroom Specialist” in the category Training for Corporate Use.


ProTeam (www.pro-team.com) became a global phenomenon in the commercial cleaning world in 1987 after introducing a game-changing design innovation, the lightweight backpack vacuum.

In 2009, Emerson—a diversified global manufacturing and technology company—acquired ProTeam, and the legacy of innovation continues with the Next Generation of backpack vacuums, the Super Coach Pro® and the cordless GoFree® Pro.
