Continental Girbau Inc. recently recognized Skyline Equipment Inc. with its 2016 Vended Laundry Distributor of the Year Award, an honor that distinguishes distributors for outstanding performance in the vended laundry market. Simultaneously, the Wisconsin-based manufacturer honored Fowler Equipment Co. with its 2016 Distributor of the Year Award for outstanding sales and support in both the vended and on-premises laundry markets.

“Skyline is committed to vended laundry development, and it shows in their work,” said Joel Jorgensen, vice president of sales for Continental. “The high-performing distributorship has traditionally shined in the on-premises laundry market. Recently, however, they’ve successfully reinvented themselves by investing in and growing their vended laundry market capabilities, expertise and sales.”

Operating from a 10,000-square-foot facility, Skyline features a large parts inventory and quick turnaround times.

“Fowler surpassed our expectations once again, continuing to develop, reinvest and grow,” Jorgensen said. “It’s a fantastic company with great leadership.”

Among the largest vended, on-premises and multi-housing laundry equipment distributors in the Mid-Atlantic region, Fowler, headquartered in Bloomfield, N.J., is a full-service company offering technical service and parts, as well as expert assistance with vended, multi-housing and on-premises laundry development.
