IPSO® Equipment Sales in North America Will Be Discontinued

 

Ripon, Wis. May 11, 2017 – Alliance Laundry Systems announced today that it will discontinue sales and marketing of IPSO®-branded laundry equipment in the United States and Canada, beginning in April of 2018. The move will not impact sales of the brand outside of the United States and Canada.

 

“This decision, while difficult for our IPSO distributors, was one we felt is necessary for our total distribution network and Alliance Laundry Systems moving forward,” said William Bittner, vice president North American Sales for Alliance Laundry Systems. “Rationalization of our brands within our North American portfolio was the primary driver behind the move,” he added.

 

Alliance will continue to support IPSO products through its Customer One® organization, offering parts access and the world’s largest commercial laundry technical support team.

 

“Alliance Laundry Systems remains committed to delivering exceptional service and support for customers who rely on installed IPSO equipment,” said Mark Schram, North American sales manager for the IPSO brand.

 

IPSO commercial products for vended laundries and on-premises laundries are currently sold in the United States and Canada through 64 distributors. Over the next year, Alliance will work closely with these distributors to help them prepare for the discontinuation of the brand.

Huebsch Names Teddy Galloway Store Owner of the Quarter

April 13th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
 
 

Huebsch Names Teddy Galloway Store Owner of the Quarter

 
 
Commercial laundry equipment manufacturer Huebsch® has named Teddy Galloway the latest recipient of its Store Owner of the Quarter award. Since buying his first store in 2002, Galloway has not slowed down in building a stable of 10 locations in South West Virginia and East Tennessee.

“Teddy is a prime example of what success in the laundry business looks like,” said Kathryn Rowen, North American sales manager for Huebsch. “He has selected the right locations, worked extremely hard, and kept the focus always on providing an excellent customer experience. The kind of owner we are proud to work with.”

Galloway is a strong believer in everything happening for a reason, including the serendipitous meeting with his laundry equipment distributor, Stan Bradley at Laundry Systems of the Carolinas. He was visiting a sandwich shop over his lunch, when a friend hollered and waved him over to introduce him to Bradley, who was discussing a laundromat retool with the friend. A week later, Galloway became interested in buying that laundromat and Bradley was his first call.

Since that first meeting, Bradley has become far more than a distributor supplying Huebsch equipment to Galloway as he grows his portfolio of stores; he has become a trusted friend.

“It’s more like an unwritten partnership,” Galloway said of the relationship with Bradley and Laundry Systems of the Carolinas. “Whenever I have needed something, they have gone out of their way to help. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for Laundry Systems.”

Galloway has grown his business both by retooling existing stores as well as through new construction. On both fronts, Huebsch equipment and Huebsch Financial Services have been trusted allies.

Previously, he worked in the engineering department of a coal company, but when his business grew to four locations, he decided to leave his job and focus on the business full time.

Half the stores in rural locations are open 24/7, while the other city-based businesses are open 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. All, however, are customer-focused as Galloway’s goal is to create a family-friendly atmosphere, where his customers get the “biggest bang for their buck.” That includes an emphasis on “big” machines. More than 50 percent of the washers (and 100% of dryers) in his stores are of the large, multi-load variety because “that is what customers want and look for.”

While Galloway is quick to point out there are no guarantees in this business, the support of his family (wife, Amy; and sons, Ethan and Thomas) has helped make him successful, along with the partnership of Bradley and Laundry Systems of the Carolinas.

Introduced in 2014, Store Owner of the Quarter recognizes Huebsch store owners who have excelled in entrepreneurism, technology adoption, innovation and superior customer and community service.
