An American Company for American Heroes

Speed Queen® has been based in Ripon, WI from the very beginning. For more than 100 years, we've been an American company that supports American workers, built upon a proud heritage of manufacturing the most reliable laundry equipment in the industry.

Like many manufacturers during World War II (1942-1945), Speed Queen halted its production of laundry equipment to manufacture 20mm shells as well as parts for airplanes, tanks and guns. Operating 24-hours a day to support the war effort, the company received numerous awards for its service.

Today we design, engineer, and assemble our machines at our facility in Ripon, Wisconsin, and each is built to handle even the most rigorous demands of military base laundry rooms.

Solid Construction. Powerful Features. Military-Grade Efficiency.

Speed Queen is the world's largest commercial laundry company, with an undeniable history of proven performance and reliability. Our commercial-grade construction is rugged, dependable and built to last. Laundry operators rely on the practical ingenuity of features designed to make their lives simpler and more productive. We do everything we can to make your laundry operation as effective as possible, including:
