RIPON, Wis. — Alliance Laundry Systems has entered into an agreement with Bangalore-based Ramsons Garment Finishing Equipment PVT. Ltd. to provide Alliance’s IPSO and D’Hooge products to the fast-growing Indian laundry industry.
India’s rising economy has created higher demand by the growing middle class for personal laundry services, as well as opportunities to invest in Laundromat and multi-housing businesses, Alliance says.
As part of the agreement, Ramsons, a leader in the manufacture and distribution of laundry and hospitality equipment in India for 50 years, will become the sole distributor of IPSO-brand laundry equipment in the region and will maintain exclusive rights to manufacture and market D’Hooge washer-extractors and ironers.
“This agreement with Alliance Laundry Systems represents a significant milestone in our company’s history,” says Sunder Belani, director of Ramsons. “I see great potential in introducing the durable IPSO and D’Hooge product lines to our market.”
Ramsons specializes in the manufacture and installation of modern, turnkey laundries and apparel manufacturing units. It has more than 16 sales and service offices in and around India and manufactures more than 100 different products in three state-of-the-art production facilities in the Bangalore area and southern India.
IPSO builds and markets commercial washer-extractors, drying tumblers, barrier washers for medical applications, flatwork ironers and small-capacity units. D'Hooge produces large-capacity washer-extractors and hygienic washers, as well as large, single- and multi-roll ironers.
