CHERRY HILL, New Jersey - On November 9th 2007, Equipment Marketers held their 14th Annual "One Day Sale and Service Seminar". This event's record attendance included hundreds of coin store owner attendees and provided valuable savings on our Maytag laundry equipment, parts and related laundry accessories. Equipment Marketers is proud to announce the first debit card- operated all-Maytag Laundry in the state of Delaware. The day delivered many of our customers with valuable prizes, excellent information and lots of great food.

The Speed Zone demonstration was an exciting new product offering for our customers. Every coin laundry operator would like to grow their profits, increase customer turnaround and lower utility costs--and now they can thanks to Maytag's new Speed Zone program. New, soft mount washers extract more water form the clothes and a new larger 45-lb. stack dryer provides quick drying for large loads. The Speed Zone allows the coin laundry operator to maximize customer turnaround with a premium-priced service which helps the customers complete their laundry quicker.

Our Energy Showdown demonstration again pitted the Maytag Energy Advantage 30 lb. Stack Dryer versus the latest, most efficient competition's model in a head-to-head energy usage comparison, with gas usage measured by meters. The competition's dryer resulted in a remarkable 25% - 30% more gas usage.

Bobby Drummond was on hand to conduct an in-depth service seminar which provided an excellent service overview on Maytag equipment and the opportunity to answer any customer service questions. Our service technicians were also available during the day to answer any specific service questions on a one-on-one basis.

During the day's many festivities, Steve Banko of Allentown, PA, was honored for opening his second coin store, the largest all-Maytag Laundry in the state of Pennsylvania. Even without any Grand Opening the store became an instant success after the second week of operation. The store features virtually every coin-operated washer and dryer in the Maytag line; it can wash/dry 432 loads (4,320 lbs.) of laundry at one time. It also features the world's first installation of the new Maytag 45lb. stack dryers. Within the next month, two OPL 50lb. washers and two 35lb. soft-mount washers will initiate a special drop off service to offer pickup and drop off service for neighboring schools and businesses. In addition, the laundry uses Maytag's Accu Trac® advanced data management and auditing software which compiles specific machine and cycle information into accurate, easy-to-read reports to monitor all aspects of machine activity from service needs to collection shortages to percentage usage of enhanced vend price cycles (including Super Cycles).
