As Michigan’s largest and oldest (since 1920) laundry equipment distributor, Universal Laundry Machinery invested in their distributorship by purchasing a store and piloting and showcasing Huebsch Command, smart technology that gives businesses advanced performance data, monitoring and adjustment capabilities and more, said Kathryn Rowen, North American sales manager for Huebsch in a recent news release.
Universal also participated in a Huebsch marketing video promoting Huebsch Command, and worked with the Huebsch technology team to improve technology offerings during a pilot program.
National Laundry Equipment, in business more than 50 years, has put its efforts toward growing the company by making necessary investments.
“J.D. Dixon is well deserving of an Emerging Star Award,” Rowen said. “He’s a perfect example of someone who has a small company and who is taking the necessary steps to provide complete and optimal support of his customer base.”
The company previously earned Huebsch’s Award for Excellence in recognition of its 2010 performance in the sales, promotion and support of the full line of Huebsch commercial laundry products.
ACE Commercial Laundry Equipment is a third-generation family-owned and operated company that services Southern California. Starting out in nothing larger than a storage bin about 20 years ago, ACE has always focused on taking care of its customers by offering quality products and good customer service, gaining it a reputation for conducting fair business dealings, Rowen said.
Huebsch previously named ACE its 2015 Distributor of the Year for outstanding sales achievement and customer service.
HK Laundry Equipment, which was also named 2013 Huebsch Distributor of the Year, has served New York and Connecticut since 1967 with coin laundry and on-premises laundry equipment. HK Laundry works to educate its customers so they are better informed.
“They educate their customers to operate the best laundromats possible,” Rowen said. “Their customers recognize the most efficient and durable commercial laundry equipment that is available.”
Aaxon serves parts of Florida. For more than 40 years, the company’s mission has been to provide customers with the latest in premium, energy-efficient laundry equipment, strategic sales support, flexible financing and fast reliable service.
Laundry Systems of the Carolinas has an innate knowledge of their market, existing laundries and storeowners, Rowen said, and is continually canvassing and blitzing their territories for opportunities.
Since 1970, Laundry Systems has been serving South Carolina and North Carolina, and in 2000, the distributor expanded sales and service to Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. It is the exclusive distributor for Huebsch coin operated and OPL washers and dryers for all five states.
Huebsch previously honored Laundry Systems of the Carolinas for its 2016 top sales improvement over the prior year in its region.
