Hurricane Irma: Alliance Laundry Systems launches a financial aid program
Alliance Laundry Systems will provide financial aid to the owners of laundries damaged by Hurricane Irma, in Florida and the Houston area.
Alliance Laundry Systems’ program
The group will grant loans (from $ 2,500 to $ 500,000) for the purchase of new equipment, including professional washing machines and dryers. Alliance Laundry Systems will suspend repayments and interest for 120 days.
“By pushing interest and payments out 120 days, they can focus and getting their operations cash flowing again (…) We know that returning to anything resembling ‘normal’ will be a long process, but we hope to help owners get their stores up and running to meet this basic need of residents in their areas.”
William Bittner, Vice President, North American Sales Area, for Alliance Laundry Systems
The program aims to rebuild the self-service laundromats as well as the on-site laundry rooms of the whole group, including Speed Queen. Apart from financial aid, we plan to provide perfect service to all our clients.
