Largest Commercial Laundry Distributor in the United States Makes Long-Term Investment in Local Community

PWS – The Laundry Company Announces Opening of New Headquarters in South Gate, CA

 

South Gate, CA – (April 20, 2016) – PWS – The Laundry Company (PWS Inc.), the nation’s premier distributor, developer and broker to the commercial laundry industry, has opened its new headquarters in the Hollydale neighborhood of South Gate, CA. The new PWS office is located on a 60,000 square foot lot, which is also home to the local county library. In addition to the complete restoration of a historic building, PWS commissioned a mural to celebrate the history and culture of South Gate and signed a long-term lease with the library to ensure it will remain in the community for many years to come.

 

“We are thrilled to officially open our doors in South Gate,” said Brad Steinberg, co-owner, PWS. “The investment in this important renovation project represents our commitment to being strong corporate citizens of South Gate.”

 

Prior to relocating the Company’s headquarters from Commerce, CA, PWS completely remodeled a 25,000 square foot retail building that was constructed in 1946. As part of the restoration of the building, which had been vacant for nearly 10 years, PWS commissioned local artist Don Lamkin to paint a 55-foot long mural that pays tribute to the city of South Gate on the exterior of the building. A replica of the mural is also featured inside PWS’s office. Lamkin, a retired firefighter, is a native son of South Gate; his father was the executive director of the South Gate – Rio Vista YMCA and later served as the South Gate Chamber of Commerce Manager. The mural will be completed in May and will proudly showcase logos and icons of local businesses throughout South Gate. To develop the concept for the mural, Lamkin researched past and present community icons and met with city officials, staff, council members and key stake holders.

 

In addition to securing the future of the Hollydale County Library with a long-term lease, PWS is also contributing $30,000 to help fund improvements for the library.

 

“The Hollydale Library has served the local community since the 1960’s,” said Brad Pollack, co-owner, PWS. “As part of our investment in South Gate, we wanted to ensure that it continues to do so for years to come.”

 

The renovation of the Garfield Avenue property and opening of the office is the first of many initiatives that will benefit South Gate residents. PWS plans to open a state-of-the-art laundromat connected to the office space this summer, which will provide an important service to the neighborhood. The laundromat will feature a modern design, as well as the latest amenities and innovative laundry technologies.

 

“We are fully embracing South Gate as our new home,” stated Steinberg. “By continuing to add resources and services, PWS will generate jobs and business opportunities for the community.”

 

A third generation family-owned business, PWS has grown significantly since its opening in 1968 to become the largest distributor of commercial laundry equipment and parts, as well as the leading builder and broker of laundromats in the United States. PWS is also the exclusive California and Nevada distributor of the world’s leading commercial laundry manufacturer, Speed Queen®. PWS and Speed Queen, two iconic American brands in the laundry industry, have been partners for more than 48 years and together have had a significant impact on the laundry industry, developing and brokering thousands of laundromats throughout California and Nevada.
