Laundry Systems of Carolinas, Loomis Bros., Onward Commercial honored for their 2016 performances

RIPON, Wis. — Huebsch, a brand of equipment manufacturer Alliance Laundry Systems, recently recognized high-performing distributors during a ceremony in Las Vegas. Earning awards were Laundry Systems of the Carolinas, Spartanburg, S.C.; Loomis Bros. Equipment Co., Fenton, Mo.; and Onward Commercial Laundry Equipment, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.

Laundry Systems of the Carolinas was honored for top sales improvement over the prior year in its region, yielding 68% year-over-year growth. The company’s Huebsch sales and service area includes the Carolinas, East Tennessee, and parts of Kentucky and Virginia.

“For nearly 50 years, Laundry Systems of the Carolinas has been a consistent leader in their market,” says Kathryn Rowen, North American sales manager for Huebsch. “Their 2016 (performance) only continued to build on that tradition of excellent sales results and outstanding customer service.”

“The strength and reputation of the Huebsch product range is well received in our territory,” says Chad Bradley, sales manager of Laundry Systems of the Carolinas. “Our success is a result of the entire staff’s commitment to going above and beyond for our clients.

Loomis Bros. Equipment Co. earned the Outstanding New Distributor award from Huebsch.

“In this business, experience is key to success, and there’s no doubt that the experience Loomis Bros. brings to the table is well respected in their territory,” says Rowen. “They have proven to be an excellent Huebsch partner, adopting the brand’s principles.”

The Missouri company’s rich history dates back to 1949. Today, its tradition of service excellence continues with a highly experienced team of professionals, including 14 factory-trained service technicians to provide superior service.

Besides vended laundries, Loomis staff serves the laundry equipment needs of clients in a variety of markets, including long-term care, hospitality, corrections and multi-housing.

“The Huebsch brand really is synonymous with quality in both equipment and distribution,” says Dale Loomis, president of Loomis Bros. Equipment Co. “The addition of this product line has been a great fit for both companies, and we are proud to receive this honor.”

Ontario-based Onward was honored for top sales improvement over the prior year in the Midwest Region, yielding 66% year-over-year growth.

“The year that Onward had in terms of Huebsch sales was nothing short of amazing,” says Rowen. “This is an organization that exemplifies what a Huebsch distributor truly is—providing excellent sales, service and customer support. Clearly, that commitment shows in their 2016 performance.”

Onward has been in business for more than 50 years, serving the needs of coin laundry owners as well as those of on-premises laundries serving hospitality, healthcare and other industries.

“We have worked very hard to build the Huebsch brand in Ontario and this award certainly is great recognition of our efforts,” says Onward’s Steve Wilson. “I’m honored to not only receive this award on behalf of my entire staff, but also represent a quality brand and product line in my market.”
