Gas was 25 cents a gallon. The average cost of a new house was around $13,000. And Maytag entered the commercial laundry market with Model 123CM, a specialized application of the companys wildly popular domestic washer designed to maintain the highest quality in engineering, workmanship, material and performance. The following is an abbreviated history of Maytag Commercial Laundry and the remarkable success we have experienced during the past 50 years.</p> <p>I</p> <p>1975</p> <p>1958</p> <p>To serve the growing needs of a mobile population, Maytag organized a network of commercial laundry distributors to provide dependable sales and service to both selfserve laundries and apartment buildings.</p> <p>Maytag introduced the single-load stacked dryer to the commercial laundry marketplace. This new product offered coin store owners a number of advantages like space savings, gas savings and offered a wider choice of settings for handling washable apparel. Maytag also introduced updated concept stores named Maytagequipped Home Style Laundry Centers this year.</p> <p>1997</p> <p>Maytag took the industry by storm with the introduction of a new high-efficiency horizontal-axis commercial washer that used significantly less water and energy than traditional top-load models.</p> <p>2000</p> <p>1977</p> <p>1962</p> <p>Maytag introduced washers and dryers activated by plastic tickets to the commercial laundry industry. This introduction represented the first major design change since coin meters were affixed to washing machines in the 1930s.</p> <p>Maytag responded to the needs of the inflation-ridden marketplace by introducing washers and dryers that featured variableprice coin slides. These machines made pricing adjustments easy to do at little cost.</p> <p>In this year, Maytag introduced a chemical injection kit that enabled hotels, restaurants, health care and institutional users to automatically add measured amounts of detergent to the wash load. Responding to increasing utility costs, Maytag launched a new line of ENERGY STAR-qualified top-load washers. The company also began offering an industryexclusive 5-year parts warranty on select coin-operated equipment.</p> <p>2003</p> <p>1987</p> <p>1963</p> <p>Maytag introduced front-load washers to provide the commercial laundry marketplace with equipment that could handle larger loads.</p> <p>2006</p> <p>To set a higher standard, Maytag introduced Highlander Center concept stores. These distinctive stores were built to standards embodying the Scottish spirit of economy with craftsmanship.</p> <p>1988</p> <p>1969</p> <p>In this year, Maytag was the first to bring to market the Dial-a-Fabric commercial washer. This design made it possible to set a complete and correct wash cycle with a single control.</p> <p>Maytag introduced another industry first with its customer-friendly Computer Trac washers and dryers. They offered features like coin-countdown, special pricing and time-remaining in cycle. In this year, Maytag also introduced the Maytagequipped Just Like Home store concept.</p> <p>In March 2006, Maytag was acquired by Whirlpool Corporation. Soon after, Whirlpool CEO Jeff Fettig announced plans to maintain and expand Maytags leadership position in the commercial laundry segment.</p> <p>2007</p> <p>1992</p> <p>1973</p> <p>Responding to market needs, Maytag introduced a large capacity commercial dryer to both coin laundry stores and on-premise laundry facilities like nursing homes and hospitals. 2</p> <p>Taking technology one step further, Maytag introduced the industrys first accountability system with its Accu Trac system. This electronic auditing system, offered on both washers and dryers, provided apartment operators with the ability to make sure they received a fair share of all money collected in their laundry rooms.</p> <p>During this year, Maytag introduced the Speed Zone concept, where customers can complete their laundry quickly and efficiently.</p> <p>2008</p> <p>Maytag continues to offer more energysaving solutions than any other brand. Maytag Energy Advantage equipment continues to remain on the cutting edge of design and performance for coin laundry, multi-housing and on-premises applications.</p> <p>50Th ANNuAl CoMMERCIAl l AuNDRY SAlES MEETING</p> <p>April 2008 TO: All Maytag/Whirlpool Commercial Laundry Trade Partners RE: 50 Years of Success Weve come a long way!
