OSHKOSH, Wis. — Girbau North America (GNA) recently announced that it had received a 2021 exceptional performance award — a gold “G” — from its parent company, Girbau Global Laundry Solutions (Girbau), headquartered in Vic, Spain.
Girbau President Serge Joris presented the award to GNA President Mike Floyd during GNA’s weeklong sales meeting, held in Oshkosh, Wis.
“GNA exceeded our expectations from a sales and growth perspective during 2021,” Joris says. “The team in North America went beyond expectations in challenging circumstances due to the global supply chain and transportation obstacles, as well as the COVID pandemic. The team in North America showed their strength by operating and collaborating as one team. It is the team’s performance — exceeding sales and profit targets ± and its contribution to Girbau results, while facing significant headwind, that made this achievement ‘beyond expectations.’”
This is only the second-ever gold “G” award given by Girbau to one of its 16 subsidiaries, Floyd says. “We are honored to be recognized for our efforts during a challenging year,” he said. “The GNA team is hard-working, inventive and loyal; we always pull together to get things done and this year was no exception. I couldn’t be prouder of our staff.”
Girbau North America is the largest of 16 subsidiaries of Girbau Global Laundry Solutions, which has products marketed throughout 100 countries worldwide. GNA brands include Continental Girbau, Girbau Industrial, Sports Laundry Systems, Poseidon Textile Care Systems, Express Laundry Centers, and OnePress.
