Continental Girbau teams with Houston-based distributor Skyline Equipment to assist storm victims

OSHKOSH, Wis. — Commercial laundry equipment manufacturer Continental Girbau Inc. and its Houston-based distributor, Skyline Equipment Inc., have initiated disaster assistance for Hurricane Harvey business victims.

The disaster relief initiative includes special equipment financing and rental programs, as well as quick equipment and parts replacement, according to Continental President Mike Floyd. His company has dedicated a page on its website——to Hurricane Harvey relief details and recovery tips.

“Working together, Continental and Skyline Equipment have secured additional warehouse space in Houston, managed by Continental, for surplus equipment and parts inventory,” says Floyd. The joint relief program also encompasses special financing on all Continental, LG, Econ-O and Girbau Industrial vended and on-premise laundry equipment.

Locally in Houston, Skyline Equipment is fielding inquiries and working to quickly prepare equipment replacement quotes, assist customers and insurers, and perform installations.

“CNN is reporting that 80% of Hurricane Harvey victims, including businesses, do not have flood insurance,” says Floyd. “Yet the majority of the damage is flood-related. That means many of our Texas customers face devastation and must dig deep to get their laundry operations up and running again. We hope that our special, full-service equipment rental program, and prompt equipment and parts replacement, will ease that burden.”

For those seeking immediate help with Houston-area laundry operations, Skyline Equipment can be reached at 281-445-9907 or 800-444-1227.
