About Us

The family based business was founded in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire in 1967 and moved to larger premises in Bourne End Mills, Hemel Hempstead in 2018.  It was the boom in coin operated self-service launderettes that gave the opportunity for the Company to start up and, once established, the business developed and began importing and distributing high quality laundry machines throughout the British Isles.  We were appointed as the sole UK distributor of the original PEKO and Nordwash brands of commercial laundry equipment manufactured by Wartsila of Finland who, today, manufacture marine engines, generators, and propulsion systems for large cruise ships and navel vessels.

The washing machine illustrated below was manufactured by Wartsila Inductries circa 1935.  The principals of the modern day barrier washing machines can be found in the design of the original Peko machines. Our business continues to promote premium brand products and is proud to be with associated with Miele and Electrolux Professional as approved partners to serve clients from all sectors including business, healthcare, leisure, education and housing.  DSC_0680edit325cropped1935

A further business development was the introduction of Peko Drying Cabinets to the UK; this product has continued to gain popularity in both the commercial and domestic sectors.  Please see www.pekodryingcabinets.co.uk for details.

Commercial dishwashing equipment was added to the portfolio of products, along with a range of catering equipment to meet the needs of a number of clients.  We now specialise in the sales and service of Miele Professional and Maidaid warewashing equipment.

Over the years the Company has amassed a wealth of expertise and experience in the sales, service and distribution of commercial food waste disposal equipment and spare parts.   We are proud to represent the world’s leading manufacturer, In-Sink-Erator.
