Since 1915, MCC Has Been Providing Equipment and Supplies to Laundries and Dry Cleaners throughout the Upper Midwest
When R.P. Baker founded the Minnesota Chemical Company in 1915 in St. Paul, Minnesota, he was committed to supplying local customers with a variety of soaps and cleaning compounds. More importantly, he believed in providing those customers with outstanding service and a personalized approach to their specific needs.
More than just its sales territory has changed in the last century at Minnesota Chemical Company. Back in 1915, company founder R.P. Baker kept all of the company records in book ledger form, handwriting each entry. Expenses - and revenue - were much less back then. Cash in the drawer in September 1915 was listed as $10 - hardly enough in 2015 to buy much of anything. Cash paid out ranged from sponges for 15 cents to stamps for 10 cents – and “car fare” for a dime (i.e. a taxi cab fare).
R.P. Baker’s approach to doing business that way is still the driving force behind the Minnesota Chemical Company, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in May 2015. The biggest difference in 2015 is that the company has grown to providing a full range of equipment and supplies to dry cleaners and commercial, institutional and coin-operated laundries and dry cleaners throughout the Upper Midwest.
