Pioneers In Laundry Equipment

To run a commercial laundry operation successfully requires competent staff, sound management and most important of all, reliable equipment that produces a quality result and operates with minimal breakdowns. While there are many different brands of laundry equipment available, there are some that produce results far superior to their competitors.

One of these is Braun, a manufacturer of large-scale, commercial laundry equipment based in the USA. The company was formed in 1946 and it soon became a pioneer in engineering innovations that revolutionised the laundry industry. Braun has passed an external auditing process giving them ISO9001 certification, and this gives their customers confidence in the quality of their products and service.

Their commitment to the continuous improvement of their products has given the industry efficient, cost-effective equipment now used around the world. A few of their most notable achievements are set out here to let our customers know that when we are installing spare parts in their Braun machines, we are also part of the success story.

We are NLE Commercial, a Brisbane-based company specialising in the supply, installation and servicing of commercial laundry equipment. We have a fully trained and equipped emergency breakdown service team of electrical technicians at your service.

Important Fact No. 1

Did you know that Braun was the first manufacturer to design a Pass-Thru machine? This was developed in the 1960s and it allows healthcare laundries to separate clean and dirty areas. This development prevents the spread of deadly infections and acts as a barrier to other airborne pathogens.

Important Fact No. 2

We take the microprocessor controls in our domestic and commercial washing equipment for granted, but we should thank Braun for the convenience we enjoy. In the 1970s, they were the first manufacturer to incorporate this technology into laundry equipment.

Important Fact No. 3

The 1980s was a decade of innovation, with several new technologies being developed by Braun. The first laundry program controlled from a desktop computer, the WASHNET system, which was the first to integrate a full cycle from automatic loading to automatic unloading, and the fully automated batch control system were all Braun inventions.

Important Fact No. 4

The 1990s saw the development of the first control software to run on a Microsoft Windows system, pioneered by Braun.

Important Fact No. 5

Braun had such faith in the future of the laundry industry that it invested heavily in a new manufacturing space creating 155,000 square feet of a modern manufacturing facility.

With a record like this, you can have confidence in the performance of your Braun equipment, but if it breaks down, we will get it operational again.
