Old textile factory transformed to high-tech sustainable laundry repair business 

Mountain Electronics, a US electronics repair company for the commercial laundry industry, recently moved and expanded its repair operations to a newly remodelled, 10,000-square-foot facility.

Apart from its own investments into the construction of its new plant, the company received a state grants to help them renovate a vacated textile factory and additional grant money to help finding and training qualified employees. The company specializes in repairing the circuit boards of commercial washers and dryers from the U.S. and Canada. Since its start in 1999, the mission has been “to provide excellent repair service for its laundromat customers, while maintaining low prices and quick turnaround times,” according to the company.

In addition, a great commitment to sustainability is claimed to be present. Not only do the repairs help keep circuit boards and machines out of trouble, but the company also uses recycled and biodegradable paper and packing materials. Moreover, they own a 15kW solar array, which supplies roughly half of their electricity needs. CFO and co-owner Whitney Brasington: “We’re proud to be able to beautifully renovate this old building and operate a growing high-tech business, which brings jobs and economic sustainability to our rural area” .
