SPEED QUEEN: AMERICA’S PRIDE
On the 4th of July – Independence Day and a national holiday in the United States – the cult brand, Speed Queen, celebrates its country as well as its 100-year history.
Since its founding in 1908, Speed Queen has developed and produced the world’s best washing machines and dryers. Based in Ripon, Wisconsin, the American brand is proud of its history, its employees and its success.
The company was born in Ripon and, to this day, remains there, in the community of which it has been part for more than a century.

Built to last.
At a time when planned obsolescence drives over-consumption and waste, Speed Queen offers ever more energy-efficient machines, designed to last for decades.
Quality and strength are the two pillars on which the brand has built its reputation amongst domestic users and professional clients, be they laundromat owners, hotel managers or heads of units in hospitals and clinics.
