What Customers are Saying About G.A. Braun
I want to express my sincerest satisfaction and gratitude for the products we recently purchased from Braun. They have exceeded all of our expectations and have proven to be of the highest quality.
From the moment we purchased the two 600-pound Braun washers, I was impressed by Braun’s attention to detail. Not only do the machines meet all of the specifications we agreed upon, but they also demonstrate a level of technology, precision and ease of use that is truly admirable. I am not only happy with the quality of the product itself, but also with the service that has been provided to me throughout our remodeling and after-sale process.
In addition, the fluid communication to address and clarify each question, the punctuality in the delivery, and the excellent disposition of Braun’s professional technical staff was very evident and appreciated.

"I would like to express my absolute satisfaction with Braun and the remanufactured 600 lb. Open Pocket Washer we purchased from you. The quality of the remanufactured washer is remarkable. The machine performs flawlessly, just like brand new, and the new equipment warranty was added bonus! Braun is my go-to company for preowned washers, and I recommend them to anyone seeking a reliable and affordable machine."
Phil Rush, General Manager
"With their newer technology, we were able to put 7 washers in the same footprint where we previously had 6 and the installation team is by far the best we've seen. Braun has serviced Clean Uniforms and More with the best service in the industry with outstanding equipment."

When it became time to upgrade our laundry, we looked no further than G. A. Braun. Our decision to purchase Braun washing and drying equipment was a good choice. The equipment functions as promised. It is durable, high quality, highly efficient, and easy to operate. It is a pleasure for us to work with Braun and to have their equipment in our hospital.

Uniform Masters recently installed a new Braun 123H Dryer to replace their 40 year-old Braun Dryer.
The new Braun dryer fit into the exact and very defined footprint that the old dryer had. This was very important as our plant layout offers little wiggle room. This installation provides us with a considerable increase in equipment reliability and throughput. The Braun team provided us a turn-key installation by removing the older dryer and completely installing the new dryer with all the related utilities. We were operational on Monday after a weekend install.
Robert Caen, Vice President
We selected Braun because of their consistent representation, reliable equipment, excellent support and great service.

With the acquisition of 4 225 Kg. Braun washers and one loose goods shuttle, we achieved the necessary productivity plus the sanitized service for 49 medical and non-medical units for IMSS South, North and Western Mexico.
We previously had an uncertain and problematic operation affecting medical-surgical units. With the new equipment and properly adjusted wash formulas we significantly reduced energy usage and the costs associated with re-wash.

This installation was the smoothest we have had for our team. We appreciate Braun’s level of commitment to the customer and their attention to detail.
Sea Island Resort - Brunswick, GA is a Central Laundry servicing Five Star Resorts in Southeast Georgia. They had a multi-phased approach to upgrading and replacing their outdated equipment, and selected Braun as their supplier.
The equipment consisted of two Braun 450N2 Open Pocket washers. The installations involved close coordination with the laundry’s work schedule and integral integration with an existing shuttle, monorail and drain system already in place at the laundry. “Both installations were smooth and on time. The new Braun washer provides us with greater production, reliability and faster turn-around time than previously installed Washex equipment. The Braun washers are more space efficient than the competitive brands we considered.
Braun also provided complete training for our team of operations and engineering professionals. This installation was the smoothest we have had for our team. We appreciate Braun’s level of commitment to the customer and their attention to detail.”

As a small business owner, the Braun experience has been the best experience.
Our regional sales manager made the process of acquiring, installing, and using the machine seamless, and he is always just one phone call away to resolve any concerns that we have. The machine has tripled the production of my business. Great purchase, great price and best of the best service from Braun!
Carlington Pinnock, Owner
"We have over 20 years of experience with Braun, and recently upgraded our Industrial Wash Alley with a combination of new and remanufactured Braun open pockets, dryers and a shuttle. The Braun engineering team worked hand in hand with our maintenance and operations staff to design and plan the project. The Project Management and Service teams then worked with us to successfully install and complete the project without negatively impacting our ongoing production. At Paris, we expect our vendors to be partners, and for many years Braun certainly has been just that!"

We recently purchased a new 300 PT Dryer from Braun. The dryer has exceeded our expectations in every way. The Braun sales representative told us that the new dryer would dry in half the time as our previous dryer. I am thrilled to say that we are getting three loads dry in the time that we used to get one load dry. The only regret I have is that we didn’t buy it sooner!

"Over the last 30 years we have sourced and continue to source various washing and finishing equipment from Braun. We have remained loyal to this brand because of its durability, low cost of ownership, and the fact that it allows us to provide our clients with exceptional linen and terry products. When you have a 5 star property like ours there is no room for poor quality, or costly operations.
Braun and its partner always make sure that our needs are more than met for processing, service, and support. As a result, we have and will continue to be very loyal partners!"

Braun Precision Series Folder......The Right Decision!
“When it became time for me to replace an old folder, I only had one manufacturer in mind. Braun was my choice. I am a repeat Braun finishing equipment customer because I have been pleased with the performance of the machines, and the outstanding service and support from the Braun team.”
Tony Mendoza, Laundry Manager

“We have been using the full line of Braun processing solutions from washroom to finishing over the last 20 years without incident. They and their sales partner in Korea have been steadfast in their support of our operational needs. Their products are durable, reliable, easy to operate, and cost effective to own and maintain.
Braun’s management has always made a point of visiting us on their travels throughout Asia, and make certain that we are satisfied with their equipment, and support services. Braun has been a loyal partner, and we are loyal to them as our processing equipment solutions provider.”

"We have had a 32 year partnership with Braun that has served us extremely well. Over this period of time they have supplied us with complete plant solutions from batch tunnels, conventional washers, to finishing equipment. In each case we have found their product to be indestructible, and the cost for owning and operating very low. In my career I have purchased other equipment because of price, but I have come to back to Braun because their support, product reliability, and because of the ease of operation and ownership.
What has impressed me about Braun is that they always visit me and my staff to make certain things are well, and they do this regardless of whether I am buying equipment or not. This is not only a partnership, but a friendship! I will continue to work with Braun!"

“I’ve had Braun ironers in my laundry for years. When it became time to purchase another ironer, we purchased a refurbished two roll ironer that looks and performs the same as new , plus they offer a 'Like New warranty' with the ironer. The decision to stay with Braun was quite simple......footprint, and product performance. With Braun ironers I get consistent quality in the high end linens we process. The ironers have even pressure across the linen due to their torsion bar.
Braun ironers are reliable, easy to maintain and I can deliver a top notch quality product to my customers.”

"I just want to thank the G. A. Braun representative and his installation crew for the level of professionalism demonstrated during the purchase and installation of the two used 400 pound Braun Side Loading TSL washers. I am very pleased with the overall results achieved.
As an operator with 40 plus years of managing institutional laundries, the Braun washer has always been at the top of my list when considering new or used washer extractors. The reason, the quality and simplistic nature of the machines. This is an indication of the level of research and development involved. Quality is the only thing that comes to mind when I think about the Braun washer/extractor.
For example, in 1998 this laundry had a 600 pound Braun Side Loading TSL washer extractor in line with two other brands. Today, this washer still operates and carries the bulk of the spread blanket daily processing. To support this machine I purchased and installed a used 400 pound Braun Side Loading TSL machine in 2004. Today this machine still operates with very little down time. The two used machines just purchased and installed completes the transition to all Braun washers. I feel this wash aisle will probably last another 10 years."
Joseph T. Lee,
Athens Regional Laundry
“We recently replaced a washer and two dryers in our wash aisle with a Braun remanufactured 400 Open Pocket Washer/ Extractor and two each Braun 123H dryers. Over the course of one weekend, Braun removed our existing equipment, installed the new machines and had them running and fully operational! The smooth and quick turnaround was essential to our being able to service our customers without any negative impact!
A Braun service technician did a full assessment of our wash aisle and helped us to find additional utility savings. The equipment is running great, water usage is down, and we had significant reductions in dry times for terry products, and up to 60% on mat processing.
We’d like to thank everyone at Braun for working with us to make this a successful project!”
Danny Revello & Mike Ruopoli,
Our productivity has certainly increased along with different efficiencies we've been able to realize by having our operator right in the wash alley where all the action is.
James Cain, Production Manager
"Indoor Billboard has been a long time customer of Braun for several reasons. Not only is the equipment durable, but the performance and reliability is off the charts. We currently have early 1990’s vintage Braun open pocket washer/extractors still in operation, and functioning as new.
Over the past year and 1/2 we purchased two Braun remanufactured 400 lb. open pocket washers. We could not be more pleased with the performance of the machines, and the outstanding service and support from Braun. We hope to continue our partnership well into the future."
Don Zea, General Manager
Commitment To Quality and Service
"As we went through the selection process for our wash floor upgrade we met with several vendors to find the right fit for us. Ultimately we were very comfortable and confident in partnering with Braun for our wash floor project for several reasons; family owned, ISO certified, impressive facility, quality equipment, supportive staff to name a few. Now that our project has been completed I wanted to provide some well deserving praise to the Braun team. The sales process, installation process, and the support and training that was provided after the installation was impressive. The team Braun provided for our project did not jeopardize their safety or the safety of any of our employees during the installation. They were extremely knowledgeable, professional, supportive, and friendly. We look forward to a long partnership with the Braun family."

"We've been very happy with the numbers we're seeing. Our utility usage has been going down as promised and it's pretty much been doing everything they said it would (Braun Tunnel System) and what we hoped it would do. It's really helping Bates Troy be more competitive in the workplace."

"Cintas continually conducts thorough assessments of our operating practices to help ensure the safety and health of our employees. Over the past 18 months, Braun has been a strategic partner in this ongoing effort. This partnership has resulted in the successful execution of numerous wash alley safety projects, all of which were completed according to plan.
Our relationship with Braun is long standing and has resulted in over half of our wash alleys being fitted with Braun equipment. We have found the equipment to be will built and durable. The service they provide is excellent! A great added bonus is the free telephone support they offer for the life of the equipment. Their structured phone support is a major advantage and is important to our ability to maintain continuous production capabilities in our locations.
Both Cintas and Braun have invested a lot of time and effort to make our business relationship strong and effective for the good of our employees and the industry."
Cintas Engineering Management,
"I can describe my overall experience with Braun in one word. Outstanding! The telephone service help desk always goes above and beyond from the initial call on through the follow up. I get calls after the phone conversatoin to be sure everything is running smoothly. The parts support desk is very helpful and great to deal with. I have dealt with many factories over the years but the reason i am with Braun and will continue to buy Braun is because of the craftsman hand built quality and super support."
"Keep doing what you are doing! Everything is good but, reliability is off the charts good!"
Indoor Billboard/Northwest, Inc.
A Partnership Built on Success!
"In 2012, we replaced a 17-year-old Braun tunnel with a remanufactured Braun tunnel. The project was so successful, the following year we replaced our second tunnel system in its entirety with a Braun system.
Our second remanufactured tunnel is partnered with a remanufactured press, new shuttle and Braun's Side-By-Side dryers. We were able to add a sixth dryer in the same footprint as the five dryers we replaced. With the efficiency of our new dryers, our total cycle time is almost half of our other dryer line, giving us the capability to run more goods through our tunnel every hour."

Chooses Braun Washing Equipment A Second Time!
"We have two conventional washers in our facility. In 2009, we replaced one with a Braun 400 TSL (Top Side Loader). Over the past six years, the machine has been extremely dependable while providing high wash quality. When it came time to replace our second washer in 2014, we decided to go with Braun once again. In addition to the machine itself, Btraun's aftermarket support has been second to none. We couldn't be happier wtih the decision we made to purchase a second Braun washer."

"The assembly and start-up of the Braun Self-Contained Thermal Ironer has been a great experience. The Braun and Centrax teams did a great job!

"Prior to purchasing the Braun Alpha 1200 Feeder, we made comparisons with another manufacturer which we had experience with on one of our two ironing systems. We operated both Braun's Alpha 1200 feeder and the competitive model for several years. Because we process linen for several customers we need the flexibility of doing small and large pieces on both ironing systems. Braun's feeder provided the ability to access the feed table for processing napkins and pillow slips without moving the feeder.
We found the Braun feeder to be more reliable, easier to maintain and performed better! Finally we have a direct relationship with Braun for support, and parts and service advice which is very important to us."
Lynden Lundy, Laundry Director

"We have high expectations with our vendors and Braun meets the standard. The sales person has been very helpful and accessible!
"The Braun sales person and service technician did a great job to meet the limitations of working in a prison and were able to install this on time. I am as happyu with your staff as I am with the equipment!"
PIA California Wasco
"With plant equipment nearing the end of life and an ever increasing load in production, we began looking into laundry manufacturers that we knew could bring their A game. After visiting various laundries throughout the U.S., one manufacturer was the leading name: Braun. One plant we visited had over a dozen open pockets washing pounds and pounds of laundry and getting the job done no matter what. After seeing that, I knew Braun was the only choice.
From initial contact with the sales team, to project management, and the service technician; the Braun team went above and beyond to help us get our laundry revampt set up and running as smoothly as possible. Being a mat plant, turn-around time is very important. Since going from split pocket washers to the Braun open pocket washers, we were able to cut our processing time in half!"
We are grateful to have a wonderful vendor in G. A. Braun!

"The Theta gives our goods a much sharper and consistent finish from our old methods, it has helped to increase customer satisfaction and our image. The biggest impact is the elimination of the bottleneck in production we had.
Before we purchased this machine, we had to restrict our washing of soiled goods based on how fast we could finish the washed goods. This underutilized our washer, and created a longer working day. Now with the Theta, we can wash our goods and then turn off the washer which saves utilities and wear on the machines. It also gives us more flexibility to grow our business.
In addition to the production labor savings, it allows us to purchase less product, because there is a quicker turnaround time on goods. This has allowed us to grow without needing to purchase additional items.
The specific features we really enjoy are the easy to read and understand controls. If a safety switch is activated the control indicates which switch is activated. This saves a lot of time and frustration. Ease of maintenance is another key feature. It is easy to enter the machine for cleaning and maintenance and features a quick disconnect for the ability to move for cleaning purposes.
I underestimated the impact the Theta would have on our production. I kept running the numbers and held off the past few years because I didn't think we were "big" enough. For anyone who is uncertain that this is a solid investment, they shouldn't have any concerns.

Braun's been a consultative partner helping us maximize our plant's efficiency and overall productivity. It's a great partnership."
