Proklean as in...?

Here is another curious company name. Proklean is an Australian company that makes all sorts of cleaning products (http://www.proklean.com.au). Why did they name themselves with a k in klean? Perhaps someone else had already registered Proclean (which is highly likely). Or could it be that they did not want to be thought of as supporters of the Proclean (after Proclus) trend in Neo-Platonism? That was, of course, my first thought upon accidentally discovering this name, because in Greek we would naturally see a K in this case, as in any other.
