PWS Wins Speed Queen Distributor of the Year

Speed Queen awarded its highest distributor honor – 2017 Distributor of the Year – to PWS-The Laundry Company.

Los Angeles-based PWS has a rich history with Speed Queen and remains one of the most prolific developers of vended laundries in the country.

“Co-presidents Brad Pollack and Brad Steinberg continue to be leaders not only in their market, but in the vended laundry industry as a whole,” said Steve Bowie, North American sales manager for Speed Queen. “They are committed to raising the image of laundromats by developing stores that are not only beautiful, but also utilize advanced technology to streamline management and deliver a high quality customer experience. This carries on a legacy that started 50 years ago. “

Last year’s numbers are evidence of PWS’s active role in the laundromat business. The company installed more than 16,000 Speed Queen machines in 2017. Equally impressive is the customer service PWS is known for providing. That shows in the fact that, of the 15 new laundromats the company built last year, 11 were purchased by customers who had bought a store from PWS in the last five years.

“At PWS, we pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our clients by being trusted partners in their business,” said Steinberg. “This approach has truly been the strength of our company since its founding.”

Pollack echoes those comments. “Winning the Speed Queen Distributor of the Year award the same year we celebrate our 50th anniversary is something the entire organization can be proud of,” Pollack said. “This is a company honor, and not the work of just a few.”

With offices in Los Angeles, Redwood City, San Diego and Las Vegas, PWS delivers unparalleled service and support through its large parts departments, service schools and Speed Queen-trained service technicians.
