Jensen Group logo


“It is with great pleasure, yet heavy heart, that we announce the retirement of a 35-year laundry industry veteran, Mr. Norbert Gittard, VP of Sales and Marketing for JENSEN USA; says Mr. Simon Nield, President, JENSEN USA.”

Norbert spent his entire 35-year laundry industry career with JENSEN, starting when JENSEN USA was named Central Finishing Systems. He began as Parts Manager, with promotions to Parts and Service Manager, VP of Operations, ending his career as VP of Sales and Marketing.

Norbert was an integral part of the growth of JENSEN USA into one of the leading suppliers of industrial laundry equipment in North America.

Norbert has served on a variety of industry councils over the years and attended many of our industry’s major meetings and conventions; quite often with his lovely wife, Connie.

On behalf of all at JENSEN-GROUP, we would like to express our gratitude to Norbert for the dedication and passion he exhibited year after year. You will be missed.
