Alex Reid has announced two new partnerships that will bring Grandimpianti and Cocchi laundry equipment to its growing machines portfolio. Alex Reid is now the exclusive UK supplier of Cocchi finishing equipment and one of very few UK distributors of the Grandimpianti washers and drying machines. Both manufacturers have headquarters in northern Italy.
Cocchi was founded in 1970 by Giuseppe Cocchi. The high quality, reliable finishing equipment range includes products such as the Classic Vacuum Blowing Table, with a 5 litre built-in boiler, the Plus Trouser Topper and the CG-Mak III Pneumatic Form Finisher.
“We are delighted to be working with Alex Reid and welcome them as part of our family of partners,” said Luca Cocchi, managing director, Cocchi. “We feel they have the experience and market penetration to successfully promote our products across the UK.”
Grandimpianti has been in operation since 1972. The firm manufactures a full range of equipment for the washing, drying, ironing, and general treatment of fabrics. Following extensive research, the company has developed several important patents such as the launch of its Dynamics Weighing System - DWS - in 2007.
Alex Reid will carry a selection of the Grandimpianti washers, driers and ironers including the GWH11 washer extractor, the GDZ14 tumble drier and a range of roller ironers. Grandimpianti’s new and connected ‘Wavy’ system will also be available in the near future.
Patrizia Terribile, managing director at Grandimpianti, said: “Alex Reid has a long-standing reputation in the UK specialist laundry business and their knowledge and expertise will provide excellent support for our machines and equipment.”
Alex Reid general manager, Stuart Fullerton, said: “The Cocchi, Grandimpianti and Camptel machines give Alex Reid a unique offering in terms of machinery. By investing in these machines our customers can expect high value returns for many years to come, providing reliability and high quality finishes.”
