Cleaning 32 million square feet is no small task, but Olympus Building Services, a KBS company, does just that. Specializing in janitorial services for higher education, Olympus employees clean more than 550 buildings daily. With a client list that includes eight universities, their staff of approximately 500 works around the clock. To get the job done, they trust ProTeam.
Placing Trust with ProTeam’s Super Coach Pro
Gregory Raglin’s career in higher ed cleaning began in 2005 when he started working at the University of Texas at El Paso. Even with more than a decade of experience, Raglin wasn’t exposed to ProTeam vacuums until 2015, when he joined Olympus. Today, as the company’s Director of Operations and National Operations Manager, he’s responsible for managing the organization’s day-to-day functions. A significant part of his responsibilities includes ensuring the staff has the right equipment. Today the company’s fleet includes thousands of Super Coach Pro 6s — and for good reason.
Maintaining optimally clean and presentable learning environments is paramount for Olympus, and the Super Coach Pro 6 is a critical piece to making this happen. “For six years, we’ve used ProTeam because they are comfortable, durable, and incredibly efficient,” said Raglin. “It’s the vacuum we trust.”
Comfort is Foundational
Quality is essential for any business, and few things impact quality as much as the satisfaction of company employees.
“We use the Super Coach Pro for several reasons, but comfort is at the top of the list,” said Raglin. “The triangular shape sits close to the body, and the harness is great for getting a customized fit. Six years of using ProTeam, and I don’t know of one employee complaint.”
Durability in Design
While comfort is part of the quality equation, it also helps to have reliable equipment. “We have stuck with ProTeam vacuums because they last,” stated Raglin. “The motors just keep going, and it’s rare for us to need a replacement.”
One of the many things Raglin appreciates about the durability of ProTeam vacuums is the motor warranty. “It gives us peace of mind,” he said. “But when you make vacuums this reliable, this durable, you can afford to have one of the best warranties in the businesses.”

Time Savings and Efficiency
There are many advantages to comfortable and durable vacuums; however, Olympus also chooses ProTeam because the Super Coach Pro helps it do more and do it better.
“When you look at any of the time savings studies, it’s clear that ProTeam backpack vacuums are the way to go,” said Raglin. “They allow us to get more done, in less time, while doing an incredible job.”
High Expectations? No Problem.
Comfort, durability, and efficiency are key drivers behind Olympus’s decision to use ProTeam backpack vacuums. And yet, there is another reason they have a fleet of thousands of Super Coach Pros.
“Several of our higher ed clients are going green,” said Raglin. “Some are even looking at LEED building certifications. This means they have high and very specific expectations. With ProTeam, we are ahead of the game. Our clients know these vacuums meet LEED vacuum cleaner requirements. We have earned their trust by doing good work and making the right decisions for years. Choosing ProTeam has helped us earn that trust.”
