RIPON, Wis. — Alliance Laundry Systems, a manufacturer of commercial laundry equipment based here, reports it is expanding its direct distribution base with the acquisition of Laundry Equipment Services (LES).
Alliance closed on the purchase Dec. 1. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The company says this acquisition is its latest move in a strategy to bring extraordinary service and factory support to expanding markets where there is an opportunity to partner with exceptional people.
This is Alliance’s fifth distributor asset acquisition in the last two years.
“We’ve seen LES make incredible progress in the Mid-Atlantic region with our Huebsch brand,” says Craig Dakauskas, senior vice president of North America commercial for Alliance Laundry Systems.
“We are looking forward to building upon the strong foundation LES has created under its owner, Cameron Clark.”
Since 1991, Hagerstown, Maryland-based LES has been providing vended and on-premises laundry solutions to the Mid-Atlantic region through its distribution of Huebsch-branded equipment.
“I’ve always believed I was partnered with the best company in the commercial laundry industry and delighted in helping my customers achieve new levels of success through that affiliation,” Clark says.
“This acquisition will enable us to take our customer service and support to a truly next-level experience.”
