Wantagh Fire Department

When the Wantagh Fire Department was looking to repair their 25-year-old UniMac washer, they called Metropolitan Laundry Machinery Sales, Inc.

Bill Breslin, the Wantagh Fire District Supervisor, contacted our office to schedule a service appointment with our veteran service manager of over 40 years, Robert Ricca.

Robert met with Bill to evaluate the washer & complete the repair. After a thorough review of the washer, it was clear that the unit needed to be replaced. Together, they designed a plan to replace not only the old unit with a new UniMac 130lb washer-extractor, but also added a UniMac stack washer/dryer, stack tumbler, and Fireman’s PPE Drying Cabinet’s.

After evaluating several bids, Bill felt Metropolitan’s complete system of equipment was exactly what the Fire Department needed to efficiently and effectively manage their throughput. The cost of the equipment also played a key role in Bill’s decision and since our bid was the lowest, it made even more sense to proceed with Metropolitan.

Bill and the team at the Wantagh Fire Department couldn’t be more pleased with the advancements of their new UniMac equipment, which has already made a huge difference in their daily routine. With a comprehensive and wholistic laundry solution, outfitted with the latest UniMac FireLinc technology, the Wantagh firefighters can confidently wash & dry their PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and record each use for tracking purposes. The hassle-free data collection tool verifies that the PPE is sterilized according to established protocols.

At Metropolitan Laundry Machinery Sales, Inc. we always stand beside our customers before, during, & long after each sale. This is a quality that is extremely important to Bill, who shared during a recent call that “Robert has proved that Metropolitan truly does stand behind their customers, and for that reason I tell people to contact Metropolitan for sales & service for all commercial laundry equipment needs.”
