Dexter Laundry to assist with hurricane recovery efforts

Dexter Laundry is working with its distributors in Florida, Texas, and the Gulf Coast to help laundry owners recover from recent storms.

“To everyone affected by the recent hurricanes, please know that the thoughts and prayers of the entire Dexter Laundry team are with you, your families, and your communities,” Craig Kirchner, president of Dexter Laundry, said in a statement. “Thankfully, our distributors in each of these communities were back in operation quickly and have begun the important process of helping our customers rebuild.”

The Dexter technical support team is working directly with the company's authorized distributors in affected communities to provide service tips to help assess and repair any damage. Each of Dexter's distributors is also fully stocked with the parts needed to get operations back up and running.
