RIPON, Wis. — UniMac, a source of heavy-duty industrial laundry solutions, recently appointed Commercial and Coin Laundry Equipment Co. (CLEC) as its distributor in the Houston and south Texas area, the company reports.

“CLEC has been an on-premises laundry leader in Florida for decades, and its expansion West has made it uniquely positioned to represent UniMac in the Houston market,” says Bill Brooks, UniMac North American sales manager.

“CLEC staff not only has expertise in the UniMac product line and the unique requirements of on-premises laundries, but they also have built a stellar reputation within the laundry industry. I’m excited to see them expand UniMac’s presence in the south Texas market.”

Since 1982, CLEC has provided UniMac commercial laundry sales, service and parts in the Gulf region from its Gulf Breeze, Fla. headquarters, the company says.

The distributor expanded recently, adding a CLEC West office in Houston. The company has a staff of more than 45 employees, as well as expansive equipment and parts inventories.

“The last few years have been an exciting time for this company as we have continued to grow our presence in the Gulf Region. The addition of the UniMac line in Houston is a major component in that growth strategy,” says Craig Dakauskas, president of CLEC. “Clients in the Houston area will soon see what the ‘CLEC Effect’ means—industry-leading sales, service and support.

“We are dedicated to earning and maintaining the trust of our clients. Being awarded the UniMac product line ensures we also are able to offer equipment that delivers maximum performance.”
