RIPON, Wis. — Gulf States Laundry Machinery, headquartered in Houston, was recently named the 2011 Huebsch Distributor of the Year. The award was presented based on year-over-year increase in overall sales, professionalism, ongoing training and other customer-support criteria.
“Our manufacturing facility can deliver machines, but it’s distributors like Gulf States that make our products stand out to customers,” says Gary Dixon, national sales manager for Huebsch. “We appreciate the hard work of everyone at Gulf States and look forward to a long partnership with them.”
Founded in 1984, Gulf States is recognized as one of the nation’s premier drycleaning equipment distributors, Huebsch says. The company began offering coin and on-premise laundry equipment three years ago and chose to represent Huebsch products. The distributor runs regular open houses and service seminars, and prides itself on having a large inventory and a parts department that is open six days a week.
“For us, this is a great accomplishment in a very short time,” says Pravin Parmar, co-owner of Gulf States. “We only represent products we truly believe in and Huebsch is one of them. Manufactured by Alliance Laundry Systems in the U.S., Huebsch is the perfect partner for Gulf States, as we share the same vision, ‘our customers come first.’”
In addition to its Houston location, Gulf States also has a branch office in Atlanta. The distributor services southern Texas and Georgia.
