Poseidon Textile Care Systems has partnered with two new distributors – Lavanett, a full-service laundry and drycleaning equipment distributor based in Lachine, Quebec, Canada; and Delta Drycleaning Equipment, a Korean-focused laundry and drycleaning equipment distributor, in Hazel Park, Michigan.
“Lavanett and Delta are highly experienced distributorships who truly understand the needs of drycleaning operators,” said Michael “Stucky” Szczotka, Poseidon co-owner. “They will be instrumental in helping grow the Poseidon brand throughout Canada and Michigan. We’re excited to welcome them both into the Poseidon family.”
Lavanett, led by Earl Eichen, employs a team of 20 and provides laundry and drycleaning solutions, parts and service to customers throughout Canada. Established in 1996, Lavanett is a proven company with a strong knowledge and background in drycleaning and laundry, said Eichen. “We are seeing a major shift in the Canadian market from drycleaning, and the use of perc, to wetcleaning,” he said. “Many landlords are rejecting drycleaners that use perc and alternative solvents in their operations. Now, we can offer the Poseidon system as an eco-friendly wetcleaning alternative. There’s nothing better than Poseidon in terms of quality, performance and efficiency.”
Specialising in Michigan’s Korean-speaking drycleaning market, Delta Drycleaning Equipment, was established in 1992 by Tae Woo Kim. The company offers quality equipment, parts and technical service to drycleaning customers throughout Michigan. Kim has also owned and operated a drycleaning business for 36 years. “I saw the Poseidon wetcleaning system in operation at a seminar and learned that the dryer is unlike anything else in the industry,” said Kim. “I wanted to offer Poseidon to my customers interested in adding wetcleaning or changing from drycleaning to wetcleaning.”
