Martin-Ray Wins Speed Queen Distributor of Year


Speed Queen laundry equipment manufacturer awarded its highest distributor honor - 2016 Distributor of the Year - to Martin-Ray Laundry Systems in a ceremony held June 5 at Top Golf in Las Vegas during the 2017 Clean Show.

Denver-based Martin-Ray has produced significant and steady growth since 2011 in the vended laundry segment of its business. In 2016 alone, the company increased vended laundry sales 155 percent compared to 2015.

"(Co-owners) Jim Hohnstein and Bill Mann are constantly dissecting their company to see what is needed to grow their market share," said Jim Rosenthal, North American sales manager for Speed Queen. "Martin-Ray is a shining example of how reinvesting in your business and building a knowledgeable team pays dividends."

Rosenthal added that Martin-Ray has reconfigured its warehouse with new racking, relocated the New Mexico facility, and upgraded its showroom, which is set up to look like a real laundromat, complete with signage, furniture, laundry carts, detergent vending machines and change machines.

With locations in Denver, Colo. and Albuquerque, NM, Martin-Ray has been providing laundry equipment sales and service throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, west Texas and western Nebraska since 1988.

"Bill, myself  and the whole Martin-Ray team are so proud to win this honor," Hohnstein said, adding that "each of us believes fully that the Speed Queen products we sell to the vended laundry industry truly are the best on the market. Bar none."

Mann echoed Hohnstein's comments saying, "2016 was a monumental year for our Speed Queen sales, and a reflection of investments made, quality of the products, and the dedication of the Martin-Ray staff."
