Continental Girbau revealed new products and technologies during Clean ’17, in Las Vegas. The company’s interactive vended and commercial/industrial laundry stands brought together team members from across the globe and gleaned record sales and leads, according to president Mike Floyd.
“We revealed much more than our expansive product offering,” Floyd said. “We showcased our team’s personal commitment to our customers, our unique and industry-changing innovations and solutions, and our energy to outdo our competition. The show was a huge success, with leads totalling over 800 and business opportunities more than doubling over the last Clean show in 2015!”
Continental’s parent company, Girbau Global Laundry Solutions contributed to booth efforts with representatives from Spain, Australia, United Kingdom, South America, Asia and Africa. Together, more than 49 representatives assisted booth visitors.
Girbau unveiled its virtual reality technology – GirbauMax – which allows users to access and design, via virtual reality, industrial, commercial and vended laundries. More than 150 booth visitors signed up and engaged in the GirbauMax experience. “We exhibited our team’s innovative spirit,” said Girbau general manager Guillem Clofent. “It was an exciting show and we were all proud to share our new tools and products.”
Girbau Industrial automation products included the FT-Maxi towel folder, the new DRB Feeder and FRB Folder, the ST-1302 Dryer, and the Compact 5-in-One – a machine that automatically feeds, irons, folds, stacks and accumulates.
Also on hand were Continental’s commercial/on-premise laundry products, including soft-mount E-Series Washers, hard-mount G-Flex Washers, complementing dryers and Express Ironers.
The new 80-pound capacity E-Series Washer made its debut. The freestanding machine, recently added to the E-Series line, offers a soft-mount design for simple installation, high-extract speeds reaching 400 G-force, superior efficiency and Continental’s highly flexible Inteli Control. The E-Series line touts models in 20-, 30, 40-, 60-, 80- and 90-pound capacities.
“People couldn't take their eyes off of our, big automated machinery,” said Floyd, “The show gave visitors ample time and resources to learn more about them.”
