RIPON, Wis. — Laundry equipment manufacturer UniMac recently presented Southeastern Laundry Equipment with its 2012 Distributor of the Year award, marking the 15th time that Southeastern has won this award.
“It’s no surprise that Southeastern Laundry continues to be recognized with the UniMac Distributor of the Year award—they do everything well,” says Bill Brooks, North American sales manager for UniMac. “Southeastern is the perfect partner and a complete expert in the on-premises laundry industry.”
The Distributor of the Year award is given to the top-performing UniMac distributor based on total sales volume for the year. However, beyond just sales totals, Southeastern has proven its value through consistent growth and broad experience in the OPL industry, Brooks notes.
“We are honored to win UniMac’s Distributor of the Year award,” says Cindy Richie, vice president and general manager of Southeastern Laundry Equipment. “It is a true testament to our sales and service staff and to the superior equipment and support provided by UniMac.”
Southeastern sets the foundation for year-over-year sales growth by maintaining long-term, tenured employees who fully understand the value of knowledgeable customer service, she adds.
Trebor Brown founded Southeastern Laundry in 1976 in Marietta, Ga., and the company has been a UniMac distributor from its beginning. Southeastern now employs roughly 50 staff members in providing services to Georgia, Florida, Alabama and southern Tennessee.
