TLC Tri-State Laundry Companies
has opened a new, state-of-the-art, 101,000-square-foot distribution facility in Valdosta, Ga. The company recently moved from its previous headquarters in Waycross, Ga., which had occupied a series of smaller buildings totaling approximately 15,000 square feet.
The Valdosta facility features more than 1,000 square feet of conference center space to be used for service training classes, vended laundry investment seminars, factory service schools and divisional sales meetings.
Matthew Stephenson founded the company some two decades ago, when he was literally “one man and a van,” according to the company. Today, TLC Tri-State Laundry has a support team of more than 80, with four locations in six states.
The company’s new distribution facility is fully stocked with new and pre-owned commercial laundry equipment and parts. Customers can stop by this new location to discuss everything from refurbishing a piece of equipment to picking up parts to obtaining financing for additional equipment or services – leasing, laundry buildout and rigging are all part of the packages offered, TLC Tri-State said.
The distributor represents Maytag, Speed Queen, Milnor, ADC and Chicago Dryer equipment lines within the region.
