Speed Queen laundry equipment manufacturer awarded its highest
distributor honor - 2016 Distributor of the Year - to Martin-Ray
Laundry Systems in a ceremony held June 5 at Top Golf in Las Vegas
during the 2017 Clean Show.
Denver-based Martin-Ray has produced significant and steady
growth since 2011 in the vended laundry segment of its business. In
2016 alone, the company increased vended laundry sales 155 percent
compared to 2015.
"(Co-owners) Jim Hohnstein and Bill Mann are constantly
dissecting their company to see what is needed to grow their market
share," said Jim Rosenthal, North American sales manager for Speed
Queen. "Martin-Ray is a shining example of how reinvesting in your
business and building a knowledgeable team pays dividends."
Rosenthal added that Martin-Ray has reconfigured its warehouse
with new racking, relocated the New Mexico facility, and upgraded
its showroom, which is set up to look like a real laundromat,
complete with signage, furniture, laundry carts, detergent vending
machines and change machines.

to win this honor," Hohnstein said, adding that "each of us
believes fully that the Speed Queen products we sell to the vended
laundry industry truly are the best on the market. Bar none."

year for our Speed Queen sales, and a reflection of investments
made, quality of the products, and the dedication of the Martin-Ray
