We believe Clean is a destination.

Here at C K, every product we make and every person we employ understands that no matter the mess, we’ve got a product that can clean it. For us, Clean is the place where everyone strives to be.

Luckily our founder, Charlie Kunkel III, discovered how to get there over 40 years ago. And he’s been guiding others to the promised land ever since. Whether it’s through private labeling our products, offering quality car wash soaps and detergents, cleaning food plants, or printing labels, signs, and marketing materials, Charlie has always tried to do things one way: right.

From the beginning, he’s put his people first, believing that the way you treat people is the only true thing that matters.

That philosophy turned C K Enterprises Inc. from one man and a mixing tank to a 133,000 square foot campus, employing over 350 people across the United States, blending around 100,000 lbs of chemicals every week, and printing over 2,000,000 labels per year.


There’s plenty of room (and it always smells great).
