Harco Company Limited was recently awarded their 4th Red Carpet Service Excellence Award from Maytag Commercial Laundry. Celebrations were held in the Harco offices in Mississauga and Montreal recognizing the team effort it takes to win an award of international significance. Maytag Commercial Laundry recognizes only one commercial distributor from its worldwide network as the best in terms of service responsiveness, professionalism and ongoing training and customer support. The fact Harco has been so recognized 4 times since 1990 is indicative of a service commitment second to none.

ST. JOSEPH, Mich. – Harco Co. Ltd., Mississauga, Ont., recently received the prestigious Fred Maytag Award during the Maytag® Commercial Laundry 54th Annual Meeting in Marco Island, Fla. The Fred Maytag Award, with a history of more than five decades, is the longest-running award in the commercial laundry industry.
“Enthusiasm for the industry, loyalty and unmatched performance are synonymous with the Harco name,” said Bob English, general manager of global commercial laundry at Whirlpool Corporation. “This award testifies to Harco’s strong performance in all three markets, including a 46 percent increase in overall business from 2010, and an all-time record year in the multi-housing segment.”
When Fred Maytag established this award, his primary objective was to recognize a Maytag® Commercial Laundry distributor for outstanding achievements and remarkable performance. Recipients emulate Fred Maytag’s marketing philosophy to distribute Maytag® Commercial Laundry products with professionalism and integrity.
“We are honored to receive Maytag® Commercial Laundry’s Fred Maytag Award,” said Robert Jackson, president at Harco. “We believe in the Maytag® Commercial Laundry brand and the time-tested reliability of the company and its products. We’re fortunate to be associated with a strong and innovative industry player that supports our business in so many ways.”
Founded in 1961, and with present ownership in place since 1981, Harco was appointed as a Maytag® Commercial Laundry distributor in 1984. In addition to the company’s most-recent win, Harco is a three-time Fred Maytag and Red Carpet Service® Excellence Award winner. In addition, last year Harco won the inaugural Breaking Away Award.
Jackson and fellow owner Robert Stevens were on hand to receive the award. Also present at the awards dinner was Fritz Maytag, grandson of founder Fred Maytag.
