WEST BABYLON, N.Y. — Kelleher Equipment is Columbia/ILSA Drycleaning Systems’ newest distributor in the Greater Los Angeles area, Columbia/ILSA reports.
“We are quite thrilled to have Kelleher Equipment as part of our elite dealer network,” says Stephen Langiulli, Columbia’s president.
Kelleher Equipment has always been an industry leader in the area of sales, distribution, service and support in the United States, according to Langiulli, who adds that the company, founded by John Kelleher Sr. in 1974, is a time-proven testament to hard work and ethics.
“It was indeed an honor to stand next to John Sr., Kelly, his daughter, and John Jr. at the recent Fabricare Show in Long Beach, Calif.,” Langiulli says.
Show visitors eagerly expressed their enthusiasm for the Kelleher/Columbia affiliation, he adds.
“We had several choices for local distribution in the Greater Los Angeles area. We chose to work with Kelleher Equipment, who is focused on helping local dry cleaning owners to be successful, as opposed to others who focused on removing shops who went or are going out of business,” Langiulli says.
“Kelleher Equipment has always demonstrated their support of the industry by working with city and local officials on the dry cleaner’s behalf. And it is this aspect that reinforces our decision to have Kelleher Equipment carry our products.”
