Friday, July 5, 2019
Oshkosh, Wis.— At “Clean ’19”, Girbau North America (GNA) showcased its comprehensive offering of commercial and industrial laundry equipment, solutions and innovations, according to President Mike Floyd.
“The show was a huge success and allowed us to connect with buyers who were really interested in seeing our equipment and solutions in operation,” said Floyd. “In all segments of the business, we introduced new products and solutions to improve laundry production, efficiency and performance.”
“’Clean is heavily a commercial and industrial laundry show, so it’s the perfect venue for us to showcase equipment and expertise in these segments,” said Joel Jorgensen, vice president of sales. “There were vended laundry owners transitioning into the commercial business and dry cleaners investing in new vended laundries. Our expert staff – versed in all market segments – worked closely with them to help them out and share their knowledge.”
Continental Girbau and Girbau Industrial (GI) commercial and industrial laundry products were on display, including open-pocket E-Series Washers and ProDry2 Dryers, as well as high-volume GI ironing, multi-sort folding and stacking systems. Live demonstrations of the new Compact+ 5-in-One, ST2700 Dryer with vacuum loading, FT Maxi Folder, DRF Feeder and FR+ Folder stole the show, according to Jorgensen.
“The new Compact+ showcased an automatic feeder, feeding clips and vacuum table, in addition to an exclusive, small-piece accumulator on the backside,” said Jorgensen. “We had a full-blown ironing system in one compact area and it ran flawlessly and produced beautiful work. We also demonstrated the perfect feeding and folding of large dry goods, such as sheets and duvets, using the DRF Feeder. We quickly converted to small-piece folding using the new FR+ Folder, which stacked and accumulated pillowcases and napkins.”
“Visitors couldn't take their eyes off of our industrial, automated machinery and the show gave booth visitors ample time and resources to learn more about them,” said Floyd.
Meanwhile, GNA’s comprehensive lineup of soft-mount washers, in 20- to 255-pound capacities, continued to draw interest, according to Floyd. New capacity additions to this high-performance line were debuted, including the 70-, 80- and 190-pound capacity machines. The E-Series line offers a soft-mount design for simple installation, high-extract speeds reaching 400 G-force, superior efficiency and the highly flexible Inteli Control.
