Speed Queen: An All-American Company

Because they are not sold at most big-box retail stores, many consumers are unfamiliar with the Speed Queen brand of products, however smart consumers who have done their research are aware that the Speed Queen company not only produces top of the line home laundry equipment that is built to last for generations, but produces them domestically, supporting our national economy and putting their home-grown work ethic to work for the American people.

Over 100 years ago, just after the turn of the century, two industrious gentlemen began experimenting with adding high-speed gearing to two hand-cranked washing machines. These innovative engineers eventually created the Speed Queen company, turning out a quality product that the American people fell in love with.

It is interesting to note that the company’s desire to provide the country with a valuable commodity led the owners to bring production of their laundry machines to a full stop during the Second World War to allow for the creation of ammunition and airplane components in the Speed Queen factories.

Upon resuming normal production, the quality of product turned out by Speed Queen was not diminished. To this day, the company strives to produce state-of-the-art laundry equipment that will last for generations.

Because the machines are built to last, mechanical failure is rare. Often when owners experience an irregularity, it is probably because routine maintenance has been neglected, and this is where we come in. Our professional technicians are prepared to service and maintain your equipment before small problems, such as clogged drains or ductwork, lead to bigger issues.

If you are in the market for a new machine, Speed Queen is an all-American company that we highly recommend.
