Troy, Mich.—Poseidon Textile Care Systems® (Poseidon) recently partnered with two new distributors – Lavanett, a full-service laundry and dry cleaning equipment distributor based in Lachine, Quebec; and Delta Drycleaning Equipment Inc. (Delta), a Korean-focused laundry and dry cleaning equipment distributor, in Hazel Park, Mich.

“Lavanett and Delta are highly experienced distributorships who truly understand the needs of dry cleaning operators,” said Michael “Stucky” Szczotka, Poseidon co-owner. “They will be instrumental in helping grow the Poseidon brand throughout Canada and Michigan. We’re excited to welcome them both into the Poseidon family.”

  • Lavanett, led by Earl Eichen, employs a team of 20 and provides laundry and dry cleaning solutions, parts and service to customers throughout Canada. Established in 1996, Lavanett is a proven company with a strong knowledge and background in dry cleaning and laundry, according to Eichen. “We are seeing a major shift in the Canadian market from dry cleaning, and the use of Perc, to wet cleaning,” he said. “Many landlords are rejecting dry cleaners that use Perc and alternative solvents in their operations. Now, we can offer the Poseidon system as an eco-friendly wet cleaning alternative. There’s nothing better than Poseidon in terms of quality, performance and efficiency.“

“Partnering with Lavanett will bring Poseidon front-and-center in Canada,” added Poseidon co-owner Jeff Quail. “The company has great market penetration in Canada, represents a number of dry cleaning brands, and aligns with our customer-focused approach to business.”

Offering prompt service 365 days per year, Lavanett touts a crew of factory-trained service technicans and provides parts for most makes and models. To learn more about Lavanett, visit www.lavanett.ca or call 877-398-1194.

  • Specializing in Michigan’s Korean-speaking dry cleaning market, Delta Drycleaning Equipment Inc., was established in 1992 by Tae Woo Kim. The company offers quality equipment, parts and technical service to dry cleaning customers throughout Michigan. Kim, who immigrated from Korea to the United States in 1978, has also owned and operated a dry cleaning business for 36 years. “I saw the Poseidon wetcleaning system in operation at a seminar and learned that the dryer is unlike anything else in the industry,” said Kim. “I wanted to offer Poseidon to my customers interested in adding wet cleaning or changing from dry cleaning to wet cleaning.”

“Tae is an owner-operator who truly understands the needs of dry cleaners,” said Szczotka. “He’s been a friend of mine for many years and we are thrilled he’s representing our brand to his Korean-speaking clientele.”
