History

Commercial Laundry Equipment Company was incorporated in 1969 by Fritz Hensel to service laundry equipment for hotels, nursing homes, dry cleaners and other industries in south Florida. Fritz stressed honesty, integrity and hard work as he brought sons Bob and Paul in to manage the growth generated by his business model.

After Fritz’s untimely death in 1976, Bob and Paul continued with the underlying commitment to customer service while developing distributor relationships with the industries leading laundry equipment manufacturers.

Today CLEC maintains strong emphasis on customer service, and offers the highest quality laundry equipment available in the market. Thousands of satisfied customers from across the country and overseas are a testament to the vision Fritz had almost 50 years ago.

"I would like to say to you that being in the business for 24 years and seen allot of different washers out on the market. I would have to say the Unimac is by far one of the best machine out there on the market place."
  • They are user friendly for the operators to used.
  • They are user friendly for the chemical industry to hook up to the machine by supplying easy access to the supply signals.
  • Unimac programming features are easy to learn taking but just a few minutes to customize formulas for individual customers ranging from hotel, nursing homes, hospitals and restaurants.
  • Machines supply flushing pockets so no chemical damage happens to the hopper supplying flexibility in the programming to flush water with chemicals.
"UniMac washers do exactly what they are supposed to do clean linen every time, excellent product all around. WOW!"

"Matt came out this morning to fix my dryer. He was exactly on time, clean, neat and very courteous. Even more impressive was that he had the part. I had figured on waiting another week or so then having to leave work again. I can't tell you how happy I am with your service. Reasonably priced, too!"
