Alliance has its origins in 1908 and is currently the undisputable leading manufacturer of commercial laundry equipment, more than doubling sales of the following competitor. Alliance has a global footprint with operations in more than 140 countries and a network of distributors in excess of 1,200, with close to 3 million of installed units. The company operates in three different business lines (OPL (On-Premise Laundry), Laundromats and Multi-Housing), as well as residual activity in residential.
Alliance expects to keep growing steadily over time based on its ability to drive market prices, an increase of market share thanks to a broader product portfolio and a bespoke service, and a focus on international expansion, through markets with low penetration and promising future.
