Rick Pyle, president of Alliance Laundry Systems, says that heavy-duty laundries are indeed upgrading their lines with more energy-efficient equipment and achieving payback through lower utility bills.
This applies not only in Europe, but also in many markets worldwide.
"The focus on energy efficiency remains ultra-critical.
If anything, this trend is accelerating."
Demand going into 2015 is especially strong in France, Germany, the UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Scandinavian countries and Pyle
says that Alliance continues to invest not only in new products but also to support these markets by investment in offices, staff, customer service and marketing.
The nature of this business continues to ensure success - laundry is a necessity of life, and remains a profitable business opportunity for investors and entrepreneurs, says Pyle
"Innovation isn't solely about technologically-advanced controls anymore, it's about committing to the next generation of washer-extractors in every facet of a machine, without harming the environment," says Pyle
is focussed on heavy-duty laundries.
