Warehouse.jpgContinental Girbau Inc. and its Houston distributor, Skyline Equipment Inc., have initiated disaster assistance for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma business victims. This includes companies in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. The disaster relief initiative includes special commercial laundry equipment financing and rental programs, as well as quick equipment and parts replacement.

“Working together, Continental and Skyline Equipment have secured additional warehouse space in Houston, managed by Continental, for surplus equipment and parts inventory,” explained Continental President Mike Floyd.

The joint relief program also encompasses special financing on all Continental, LG, Econ-O and Girbau Industrial branded vended and on-premises laundry equipment.

Locally, Skyline Equipment is fielding inquiries and working to quickly prepare equipment replacement quotes, assist customers and insurers, and perform installations.

That means many of our Texas customers face devastation and must dig deep to get their laundry operations up and running again. We hope that our special, full-service equipment rental program, and prompt equipment and parts replacement, will ease that burden.”
