INWOOD, N.Y. — Laundrylux reports that it has entered into a business relationship with distributor Coin-O-Matic, based in the Chicago suburb of Alsip, Illinois. Coin-O-Matic has long been a “dominant presence” in Chicago and the surrounding areas, Laundrylux says, representing an exciting step forward for the two legacy laundry businesses.
The news arrives just as Coin-O-Matic is poised to celebrate a century in business.
“We’re excited to honor our 100-year anniversary in the laundry industry by providing a revolutionary brand like Electrolux Professional to our customers,” say Matt Miller, Coin-O-Matic president.
Founded in 1921 by Harry Miller, Coin-O-Matic offers commercial laundry solutions and equipment for Laundromats and facilities with on-premises laundries in Chicago, northern Illinois, and northern Indiana.
Miller is the founder’s grandson, helping the third-generation family business push toward being the country’s most trusted commercial laundry institution. Miller’s forward-thinking vision pairs well with the Laundrylux brand, Laundrylux says, as the latter is renowned for innovative technology, a dynamic approach, and a commitment to distributors.
“With Electrolux Professional equipment, we are able to support our customers in this next chapter of our business,” said Joe Martynaitis, general sales manager for Coin-O-Matic.
“We can really make a difference for our customers now,” he says. “Customers will enjoy the major utility savings and the drastic reduction in overall costs and cycle times that come with the high-spin Electrolux Professional equipment.”
Miller calls the Electrolux Professional technology “the most advanced” he’s seen.
“Laundrylux is extremely dedicated to the success of distributors and their customers,” he adds. “We are excited to have access to Laundrylux’s vast business network, in-house financing, and marketing, in addition to the Electrolux Professional line of equipment. Ultimately, this decision is one that will help our customers succeed.”
Gordon Kertland, executive vice president of sales for Laundrylux, says his company is excited to be entering the Chicago market and surrounding regions by teaming with Coin-O-Matic.
“The Miller family is well-known in the laundry industry and we are pleased to be partnering with them in order to offer their customers the very best in equipment and services,” Kertland says.
