Low water wash system introduced
MANCHESTER, NH — Xeros, the innovator of an ultra low water cleaning system, has officially opened its North American headquarters in Manchester, NH.
Through the use of polymer bead technology, the patented Xeros System for commercial laundry uses 70 percent less water, up to 50 percent less energy, and approximately 50 percent less detergent compared to traditional “soap and water” methods.
By combining the beads’ molecular structure with a proprietary detergent solution, dirt from soiled items is attracted and absorbed by the beads, producing cleaner results.
The reusable beads have a lifespan of hundreds of washes before being collected and recycled.
The Xeros System was launched to the market at the Clean Show in New Orleans this past June. Several customers in the U.S. are using the technology. They include the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, VA; Crest Cleaners in Clifton, VA; and Sterling Linen Services in Manchester, NH.
The company also named three industry veterans to lead its North American sales and operations and to support its current customers. They are Jonathan Benjamin, president North America; David Kaupp, vice president of marketing; and Jim Basler, director of operations.
