The father and son team behind HJ Weir has launched WeCoTec, a new online laundry equipment brand. Teaming up with Milnor USA, WeCoTec will supply a complete range of high quality, durable and easy to use washers and dryers.
Under the banner WeCoTec “Part of Something Bigger”, WeCoTec is a newly established brand founded in March 2018 by Rob and Ross Weir of HJ Weir, who between them have a combined 61 years in the laundry industry.
The Weir businesses and the HJ Weir brand is a fourth generation family business. Ross' grandfather was a keen inventor and focused a lot of the business in the 1960’s and 1970’s on research and development, creating automated machines for large industrial laundries.
Henry John Weir (HJW) was the founder of HJ Weir and pioneer and originator of flatwork handling technology. One of the first machines Henry John Weir invented was Economatic Washroom Automation. Ross Weir, managing director of WeCoTec said that the family of brands has gone full cycle, coming back to washers and dryers with WeCoTec in 2018.
“Across all Weir brands, we are now able to offer the excellent and complete range for all industrial and now, with WeCoTec, commercial laundry needs.”
The new company is founded on unrivalled experience and excellence across laundry businesses, added Ross Weir.
