The family based business was founded in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire in 1967 and continues to operate from premises within the town. 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.
