Covering seven square miles of Lake County, IL, Aptakisic-Tripp School District 102 serves over 2,500 students in four schools – Tripp Elementary School, Pritchett Elementary School, Meridian Middle School, and Aptakisic Junior High School.
GSF ILLINOIS began working with the district in 1998, and in 2005 formalized a long- term partnership. Today, GSF ILLINOIS empowers a team of over 20 full-time staff to maintain all of the district’s facilities — cleaning carpets, floors, windows, and other surfaces to ensure each building is sanitary and orderly for the next school day.
GSF’s innovative Écologique cleaning program brings together sustainable chemicals, equipment, consumables, documented training and procedures, and GSF University leadership development to help the district reduce its environmental impact. The program, which is certified by Green Seal, ensures the highest standard of cleanliness to benefit students, staff, and visitors.

As a global leader in the flavor and fragrance industry, Mane opened its North American headquarters in Lebanon, Ohio in 2014 — an award-winning 85,000 square-foot building that houses its corporate headquarters and state-of-the art R&D center. As part of leadership’s commitment to the facility’s refined architecture and the unique demands of its food laboratories, Mane retained GSF OHIO as its building services contractor. From the outset, the GSF OHIO team developed customized cleaning and training protocols to ensure exemplary handling of the building’s sophisticated floor work and food safety demands.

Opened in August 2012 as a partnership between Indiana University Health and the IU School of Medicine, the IU Neuroscience Center combines comprehensive neurological services in a single location. The Gold-certified LEED building covers 229,000 square feet over six floors, and is one of several LEED buildings GSF INDIANA maintains as stewards of the Green Cleaning movement in Indianapolis.
Teaching and practicing medical office building with diagnostic, rehabilitation, and clinical services throughout the facility, the IU Neuroscience Center is a high traffic environment connected to both IU Health’s People Mover rail system and the IU Health Methodist Hospital.
GSF INDIANA’s partnership with Landmark Healthcare Facilities began in August 2014, when GSF INDIANA successfully consolidated cleaning services that were previously contracted from three separate companies. The GSF INDIANA philosophy of accountability and relationship ownership, instilled in both the day and evening staff, has made this a great partnering success, reflecting the shared value of “we care about clean” by both our team and Landmark Healthcare Facilities.
