LAVATEC Laundry Technology - the future!

Because of our development work and the experience of our long-time employees, in the past two decades we have brought significant technical innovations to the market and subsequently shaped the standard of modern laundry equipment. Our designers, engineers and technicians have gathered many years of experience in the laundry industry on continuous batch washer technology, press and dryer development. The effectiveness of existing laundries is based on their knowledge of planning, construction and manufacturing.

It is more than 20 years since the forerunner of our present company was founded, today we are the leading provider of laundry equipment and machinery. We operate our main production facility at the central site in Germany and we have subsidiaries in France, Italy and the USA. With the help of experienced partners we are able to serve markets around the world. Our marketing strategy is based on a world-wide network of reliable partners and distributors.
