You know those washers and dryers you’ve seen or used in commercial establishments such as laundromats, hotels and universities? Chances are, they were Speed Queen®. And if so, chances are they’re still in operation.
Why is that important to you? Because the washers and dryers we’ve manufactured for over a century are tested to stand up to years of the most demanding commercial applications and are the same machines built and tested to last 25 years in your home.
The reason we’re the leader in commercial laundry is no mystery - stronger parts make for longer performance. While other manufacturers choose to build their washers and dryers using plastic parts, we use commercial-quality metal components throughout our machines.
We design, develop and manufacture all critical machine components in Ripon Wisconsin. We take pride in the quality of our products and their dependability in your home.
We understand that if your control doesn’t work, neither does your machine. Speed Queen electronic controls are designed for reliable operation and proven through more than two decades of use in the commercial market. Our industrial controls are engineered to endure extreme climate environments, power surges and vibration for years of trouble-free use.
Speed Queen controls use a multi-layered circuit board with heavy-duty connectors for commercial durability; and every circuit board features a moisture barrier backing for added protection. A commercial-grade component adhesive enables our controls and circuitry to withstand prolonged vibration for years of reliability.
Manufacturing products that perform for a quarter-century in the home begins with a program of vigorous product testing long before the manufacturing process begins.
To this end, we employ a unique 5-stage product development process that pushes each design to its limits on screen and in the field. Within a state-of-the-art test lab, equipment is tested to 10,400 cycles, the equivalent of 25 years of performance in the average home and two to three times longer than other brands.
Speed Queen washers and dryers are tested to last 10,400 cycles. Using an average of 8 loads of laundry per week, that adds up to 25 years of use in your home. We receive daily messages and online reviews from homes around the globe who own machines that are 25, 30 even 40+ years old. Our commitment to American Quality is proven in the reliability of our machines and your peace of mind.
