What Customers are Saying About G.A. Braun
Since the Costa Rica Social Security purchased and installed new Braun washing and drying laundry equipment in our facility, our efficiency and wash quality has improved, as well as delivery time to our hospital customers.

Zeledon Venegas Laundry, Costa Rica
Our Braun top side loader washer is providing us savings in energy and water consumption. The ergonomic design has improved our load and unload times and has eased the labor of our operators. The machine has given us improved wash quality and increased efficiency and reliability.
Olger Hernandez, Engineering Department
OSA Hospital, Costa Rica
“Our operators are enjoying the experience of having a new Braun washer. We are getting excellent performance and efficiency in every load. We are very thankful to have this new washer.”

As director of finance for The Evergreen Cooperatives, I oversee all the financial activity for the organization, which includes Evergreen Cooperative Laundry. Our organization is a little different because we are a worker-owned cooperative. Unlike a traditional small business, there is not one owner to guarantee a loan. This is a business structure that traditional lenders often have difficulty with.
What really impressed me about Braun Financing was the way they asked pertinent questions and took the time to understand our structure to become comfortable dealing with us. They were receptive to setting up a teleconference that included everyone who needed to understand how we operated. I found the Braun Financing organization easy to work with, reasonable, willing to listen to the needs of their borrower and very efficient. We needed commercial ironing and folding equipment that would save us a tremendous amount of time and labor, allowing us to expand our operation in a very cost-effective way, adding to our efficiency and our customer growth. The people at Braun Financing took the time to understand how important this investment was to our future.
As a former banker, I have handled a lot of loans over the years, so I can speak from experience. The way Braun handled things was impressive. The documentation process was easy to understand. Everything could be handled online and the closing was quite easy, too.
Another thing that I really liked was that they arranged for a deposit to be made first, then for the equipment to be installed and inspected so they were certain we were completely satisfied before the final payment was made. That was important to us, and gave us a feeling of control. We were also pleasantly surprised that the interest rate was so competitive. We would definitely consider using Braun Financing again without hesitation.

“The Braun Advantage 900 is our fourth machine we have bought from Braun this year, and from start to finish Braun has blown the competition out of the water. From sales to service they follow up and take care of everything, and the product is warranted with no questions asked. The service is exceptional, 24 hours a day you can call and a real person picks up the phone, ready to help you. That commitment to customer care is instrumental to a family-owned business and makes us want to do even more business with Braun.”

"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!

"We recently replaced our 30 year old Braun Small Piece Folder with another Braun. We chose Braun because of their reliability and because their outstanding service and support teams are always quick and responsive to any needs we may have. The startup technician was quick and efficient and answered all of our questions."

The laundry processes 5 million pounds per year. They have a 6,000 square foot area that is integrated with the hospital. They operate with Braun conventional Medicare Washer-Extractors. The laundry operates 6 days per week in a one shift operation. The upgrade required close cooperation with the laundry operations and engineering teams to complete the integration of the new machines on time and on budget.
The equipment consisted of Braun’s New 400 and 600 lb. TSL Medicare Washer-Extractors.
“We are very pleased with our new Braun equipment. The new machines replaced older equipment from another manufacturer. The new washers save time loading and unloading for each cycle. The operators like the automated shell door which opens at the touch of the button. The installation was smooth and on time. Braun provided complete training for our team, both our operations and engineering professionals. We appreciate Braun’s level of commitment to the customer and their attention to detail.”

"Working with the Braun team during the installation of our new dryers was a great experience. They worked with us and other trade vendors to make the installation of our new 123H dryers run smoothly and successfully!"

The Equipment consisted of Braun's Remanufactured and upgraded 200 and 400 lb. TSL Medicare Washer-Extractors.
"We are very pleased with Braun's remanufactured equipment. The machines look and operate like a brand-New machine! The washers were fully stripped, cleaned and remanufactured and upgraded in Braun's state-of-the-art factory specializing in the process to fully remanufacture this equipment. All controls were new and the machine was completely rewired with today's technology. The installation was smooth and on time. Braun provided complete training for our team for the operation and engineering professionals. We appreciate Braun's level of commitment to the customer and their attention to detail."

“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.”

“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.”

Everything is communicating with each piece of equipment as expected, and our productivity has certainly increased.
James Cain, Production Manager
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!

Ritz-Carlton Hotel - Seoul, Korea
I have been the engineering manager for our laundry since we installed the Braun equipment. Before that time, I worked at another hotel where we also used Braun. My experiences has always been very good; the Braun machines are extremely reliable, and require limited maintenance outside of normal preventive maintenance and normal replacement of wear parts. As the condition of our equipment proves, if they are properly maintained, they remain in top condition and provide many more years of service. We have definitely received a significant return from our investment in Braun.
Even though our machines are older, and we currently do not have an immediate need for new equipment it is very satisfying to see Braun and their partner Technolux calling on our account. It is clear that they value all clients, and when it is time for us to purchase new equipment we will undoubtedly go with Braun!
Ernie Munez, Laundry Manager
Heritage Hotel - Manila, Philippines
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!

The Hyatt Regency Orlando - One of Florida’s top convention Hotels recently installed a new Braun Alpha 1200 Spreader Feeder for their On-Premise Laundry. The laundry team at this major hotel laundry facility quickly realized that this feeder provided quality feeding and complete flexibility to operate with many items including, King Size Sheets, Napkins and Table Linen. The former ironing line was set up for only small items but the feeder gave them the capability to process large items with the push button, and to process small pieces by raising the feed deck to the up position.
The swing down discharge conveyor allows operators access to the ironer for maintenance without having to move the feeder!
“We are very pleased with the increase in production, processing flexibility, and greater reliability the new Braun finishing equipment has brought to our operation.” We have used competitive equipment but were very impressed with Braun’s capabilities. We are very pleased with the level of support from their Florida Service Organization!
Cesar Villarreal, Laundry Engineer
Hyatt Regency Hotel
"The efficiency of my new Braun small piece folder is so great that it has freed up two full time employees to perform other important tasks in the laundry. Needless to say we are elated!"
Don Marrone, Owner
The Boca Resort and Club - One of Florida’s most luxurious Resorts recently replaced two of their older dryers and installed two new Braun 500PT Gas Fired Dryers for their On-Premise Laundry. The Boca Resort laundry team quickly realized the new dryer production more than doubled and in less floor space than two of the older dryers! In addition to the productivity enhancements with these dryers, we are saving energy, while making the drying process much more efficient!
“Braun made the process worry free! Their team along with our contractors removed the older dryers and lint collectors, re-routed the ductwork and reconnected the equipment over the course of a weekend while coordinating rigging, mechanical and electrical trades for a successful installation with very little down time. Finally, the ROI will successfully pay for the new equipment in less than a two year period!
We are very pleased with the increase in production and greater reliability the new Braun Equipment has brought to our operation. We have used Braun laundry equipment for over 20 years. We are very pleased with their Project Management team and the level of support from their Florida Service Organization!”
David Watson, Director of Housekeeping and Laundry Operations
The Boca Resort and Club
“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.”
Danny Thomas, Owner
Metropolitan Laundry & Linen Serivce
"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!”

Kleen-A-Matic Continues To Expand!
Kleen-A-Matic recently added another new G. A. Braun 450 N2 Washer/Extractor to the existing wash alley making a total of six Braun open pocket tilting washer/extractors. "We are very pleased with increase in production and greater reliability the new Braun equipment has brought to our operation. We have used the Braun equipment since 2004 when we started upgrading our existing wash alley. We are very pleased with their performance and the level of support we receive from their local Atlanta team. The open pocket tilting washers provide excellent mechanical action and fast turn times for optimizing the production capability of our laundry operation."
Kleen-A-Matic is located in Rossville, Georgia (a suburb of Chattanooga). They are an industrial laundry that processes uniforms and dust control for North Georgia, North Alabama and Eastern Tennessee. They have been in business since 1939 and enjoy a growing business.
The Ritz Carlton St.Thomas is a 30 acre, 180 room resort located in the US Virgin Islands. We operate an on premise central laundry utilizing two flatwork ironing systems and several washer/extractors. As it became evident that we needed to expand our current laundry capacity, we began the search for the right fit to our current facility. The Braun team provided assistance in being able to make this happen with maximizing the production per square foot of the space available. Their 300PT Dryer and 250N2 Washer-Extractor was extremely space efficient and fit into our existing layout. We found the Braun equipment to be reliable, easier to maintain and performed better! Finally we have a direct relationship with Braun for support, parts and service advice which is very important to us.
Joseph Cypre, Laundry Director
Ritz Carlton - St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
"We chose Braun equipment for several reasons. We were very impressed with Braun’s Leadership, the new investment of their plant, and the way they try to conserve costs and produce a quality product at the best economical price. During installation, their engineers and mechanics were 100 percent dedicated. I could not have had a better team to work with.
One other big factor that played into our decision was most of the parts on the Braun tunnel can be bought locally from Braun. A lot of the parts on foreign manufactured tunnels cannot be purchased locally. We have complete confidence in the tunnel’s performance. Being ISO Certified shows that Braun has the desire to be the best in the industry."

"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
"I have owned and operated Braun laundry equipment for many years and have been quite satisfied with product performance. Recently we purchased a new Braun 450 lb. Open Pocket Washer and I am very pleased with the new features and functionality they've engineered into the product. The new color touch screen controls are so simple to use. Another improvement, more important is the electronics safety feature. Braun machines separate the high voltage from low voltage components. One thing that has not changed is the exceptional mechanical action and wash quality."

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."
Bob Beyer, Plant Manager
ITU AbsorbTech, Inc.
"In late summer of 2014, we made the decision to purchase a new folder/cross folder, a small piece accumulator and a vacuum feeder. We shopped and received quotes from several manufacturers and after checking references we chose Braun. Our decision was not based upon price alone, we considered service (before and after the sale), reliability of the equipment, availability of parts and technical assistance. These are just as important as the price.
One year after our purchase we are very pleased with our decision. The equipment has been all that was promised. Our Braun sales representative went above and beyond what was expected. He was here the entire time the equipment was being installed and came back several times over the next several weeks to ensure our complete satisfaction. He continues to stop and inquire about our needs, the performance of the equipment and to offer any advice that can help us become more efficient.
I would not hesitate to refer Braun equipment to any other industrial laundry and plan on purchasing more Braun equipment with the outstanding representation from your staff. Keep up the great work."
Todd Deaton, Executive Vice President

"Our new Braun Open Pocket System is extraordinarily efficient. The washing ability is outstanding and the drying times have truly exceeded our expectations.
We can now dry mats in 7 minutes! The energy savings and related cost reductions speak for themselves. With the efficiency of our new system, we’ve been able to grow and take on additional business, all the while reducing our operating time!
Partnering with Braun was the right choice."

"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."
"Our customers are hospitals who are concerned about quality processing, Infection control and how we deliver their product. Braun equipment helps us meet all those requirements. It is efficient, durable, and extremely versatile!
We can go from running fitted sheets to patient gowns with just the push of a couple buttons. The end result…..products that are truly of the highest quality."

Expand Your Laundry Capabilities with a Strong, Supportive Business Partner
"We have had G. A. Braun as a partner in our laundry operation since 2001. Four 14 years Braun has supported our equipment and helped us grow. So when the Hotel announced plans to grow to 810 rooms, we solicited Braun's help to plan and execute an expansion of the laundries capability.
We had an existing Braun 130 lb. tunnel system that has served us very well, and in looking at our options for the expansion we determined with Braun that replacing this system with their new 8 chamber 150 lb. (clean dry weight) system would allow us to not only take on the added volume, but reduce our operating hours.
Braun's Project Management Team made sure our delivery and installation went as smooth as possible working with our contractors during a very tight time schedule. The rigging out of older equipment and the delivery, rigging and installation of the new equipment was executed with a very professional staff. Everything worked like clock work, and the system has operated as advertised since the first day of operation.
The new Braun Tunnel has allowed us to remove a third party water re-use / ozone system saving money and maintenance and allowing us almost 1/2 gallon per lb. washed.
We appreciate our relationship with Braun and look forward to growing our operation together in the future!"

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."

BRAUN PRECISION SERIES SELF-CONTAINED THERMAL IRONER
"We are very happy with our decision"
We were looking at replacing our 1983 Delta Flatwork Ironing System. We had for many years ran two ironers on a Fulton Thermal Oil Boiler and had taken one ironer out of service the year prior. We felt we didn't need the big Fulton Boiler any longer so we looked at Self-Contained Thermal as a solution. The 2 Roll 48" Braun Precision Ironer fit nicely into the footprint we could utilize and has worked very well for us since install in July of 2014. Both the productivity and quality have been as expected and the savings in utilizites due to shorter conditioning times and the self-contained boiler have been excellent. We are very happy with our decision.

We recently added two new Braun 450 lb. Open Pocket Washer/Extractors and one 500 lb. Pass-thru dryer to our existing wash alley. This brings our total to 16 Braun washer/extractors and Six Braun Pass-Thru Dryers. The Braun team made certain our delivery and installation ran as smooth as possible. The team installed the equipment over a weekend and we were up and running without issues that Monday morning. I give Braun an A+ for its service and continual support of its clients.

"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!

Braun has provided Oncore tremendous support from every level of their organization. We look forward to continuing our partnership well into the future."

Tritex Services recently retooled the existing wash alley of their plant by adding a new Braun 450 N2 Washer/Extractor and a new Braun 500 PT Dryer. "We are very pleased with the increase in production and greater utility efficiency out of our new Braun equipment. The increased mechanical action and ergonomics of the tilting washer have shortened our wash cycles and turn times. More importantly the performance of the 500 PT dryer has shortened our dry cycles by half the current cycle time while reducing utility costs!
Jeff Forester, President
"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.

For over 25 years, Ace ImageWear has been a customer of Braun's for several reasons: 1) Braun has always demonstrated a commitment to their customers by providing highly efficient and durable products. 2) They have a renewed commitment for direct to end-user service and support that my maintenance staff has given high marks to, and 3) They continue to invest in new product development and technologies, plus enhancements to existing product lines. Braun's been a consultative partner helping us maximize our plant's efficiency and overall productivity. It's a great partnership.

"Braun has always been a very effective resource for me both in parts and service related issues since I started in this industry in 1988. The staff is both pleasant and knowledgeable, and I would recommend Braun to others."
