Tecni-Quip Carts

2013 is a Special Year for Tecni-Quip as they are celebrating their 52th year in business as family owned and managed company.

Tecni-Quip founders Charles and Jane served their country during World War II (Charles Clement an Army Captain and Jane employed as a Civil Service Secretary for the War Department). They met while deployed in the Panama Canal Zone in 1944 and were soon married. In 1950, as so many G.I.’s did, they moved to the Los Angeles area where Jane worked as an executive secretary to a Fortune 500 company and Chuck (with the help of the G.I. Bill) pursued his degree in Aeronautical Engineering.

In 1961, not satisfied with designing aircraft and working for large companies, Jane and Charles became entrepreneurs and founded TECNI-QUIP, in a borrowed garage filled with tools, a drafting board and dreams. Within a few years they were designing and building linen carts for local Los Angeles area hospitals. Soon Charles was traveling (with carts in tow) up and down the West Coast while Jane maintained the office and staff.

By 1966 – with the birth of the L—Series models of enclosed linen carts – TECNI-QUIP carts were sold coast to coast. The strength, durability, mobility and creativeness of the L-Series models has never been surpassed (carts 45 years old are still in service today – weekly we receive requests for replacement parts & covers). Since its inception in 1966, the L-Series has been manufactured daily in their factory. Founder Charles, passed away in August, 2012 at the age of 93.

In 1984, after years of designing and manufacturing Brand X’s filters, Charles began Clean Cycle Systems lint filters — with the help of Jane. Soon distributors nationwide began selling these reliable and well-designed units. Today CCS models range from the simplest design for OPL laundries to large advanced models that can process lint from multiple dryers. Places from College Dorms in Seattle to Dubai, U.A.E. — there is Clean Cycle System’s filter collecting lint.

Today, the company retains the original integrity, craftsmanship and attention to detail in the manufacturing process and in their product models that Charles and Jane founded the company on.
