OSHKOSH, Wis. — Commercial laundry equipment manufacturer Girbau North America (GNA) recently honored Fowler Laundry Companies, Union, New Jersey, and Sparkle Solutions, Concord, Ontario, Canada, for their outstanding sales and service.
Fowler earned 2019 Distributor of the Year honors in both the vended laundry and the multi-housing laundry markets. Sparkle was named the Canadian Distributor of the Year for a third time.
Fowler is a full-service company and one of the largest laundry equipment distributors in the Mid-Atlantic region.
“Everything is done really well at Fowler, especially in the vended and multi-housing sectors,” says GNA Vice President of Sales Joel Jorgensen. “A regional powerhouse for years, Fowler does a great job capitalizing on the LG and Econo washer/dryer brands for multi-housing customers and discovering profitable solutions for their vended laundry partners with the Continental, Express Laundry Center and Express Clean brands, in one of the world’s most competitive markets.”
Sparkle Solutions, managed by Ray Helwig, serves on-premise, multi-housing and vended laundry markets within its Canadian territory of Ontario. In doing so, the distributor works closely with laundries throughout its territory to cut utility costs and maximize profit through expertise on energy conservation, equipment and technical services.
“The Sparkle Solutions team is extremely versed in all aspects of vended, multi-housing and on-premise laundry development, productivity and efficiency,” says Jorgensen. “They are perpetual performers because of their dedication to customers and service after the sale.”
