Speed Queen has been an American staple since they started producing their first laundry machines in Ripon, Wisconsin, in 1908. They have over 100 years of experience developing a product that is recognized by the commercial laundry industry as reliable, durable, and state of the art. In fact, Speed Queen is dedicated to constantly improving their products through advance digital engineering and modeling programs. This enables them to offer a product that is optimized and efficient for consumer consumption. For example, Speed Queen washers utilize a flexible high vane agitator in top load washers that rotates 210° at 68 strokes per minute. This provides not only a cleaner wash for your clothing, but also is less wear and strain on linens. The preservation of your clothes is the priority of Speed Queen.
