INWOOD, N.Y. — Electrolux Professional, the $1 billion professional products division of global appliances manufacturer Electrolux, is collaborating with Laundrylux, the North American importer and distributor of Wascomat and Electrolux branded professional laundry equipment, to develop new products and integrated technologies and applications for the coin laundry and on-premise laundry (OPL) markets, the companies announced.
“Electrolux is committed to developing next-generation solutions optimized for the markets and segments we serve globally in Professional Laundry,” says John Evans, head of the Americas for Electrolux. “Laundrylux, our largest partner, has tremendous knowledge of the North American market and is expanding its reach with strategic acquisitions. We will support Laundrylux’s important initiative by devoting R&D resources with the specific intention of optimizing our solutions for North America.”
Evans says the “focused R&D efforts” have already been initiated.
“We have worked closely with Electrolux Professional for decades. Now, the tight integration of products, applications, and data analytics requires an even closer collaboration,” says Neal Milch, Laundrylux executive chairman. “Electrolux is developing integrated solutions throughout its appliances and professional products businesses, and we are excited to bring these to the North American professional laundry market.”
Electrolux and Laundrylux will “debut these innovations” at the Clean Show in New Orleans in June, according to Milch.
