FRANKFURT, Germany — IPSO is showcasing a fully operational vended laundry at Texcare International 2012. Visitors to the booth are able to see how the machines process clothing and linens and how advanced controls help owners increase energy efficiencies.
Vended laundry offers a high return on investment, little or no employee overhead and a relatively small initial investment, according to IPSO, making it an excellent business investment for any entrepreneur. And a vended laundry can be customized to accommodate almost any cultural and geographic factors, the company adds.
The display includes eight of IPSO’s new HD softmount washer-extractors and three DR tumblers. The washers operate using the Cygnus standard control and are connected to a central pay system. The tumblers feature the DX4 control.
“At IPSO, we know our products work hard to get the job done and it’s important for customers to see that, too,” says John Balman, senior director of sales—Europe for Alliance Laundry Systems, IPSO’s parent company. “Having a fully operational coin store at Texcare gives us the opportunity to not only describe how a Laundromat works, but to actually allow our visitors to experience it.”
Texcare International—the World Market for Modern Textile Care—runs through Wednesday.
