The premier electronics repair company for the commercial laundry industry is continuing to grow. This fall, Mountain Electronics moved and expanded their repair operations in Western North Carolina to a newly remodeled 10,000 square foot facility. They received a $25,000 “Building Reuse Grant” from the state of North Carolina to help them renovate a vacated textile factory in their county. In total, the business invested approximately $500,000 into the overhaul of their new plant. They also received some “On the Job Training” grant money to aid them in finding and training qualified employees. CEO and co-owner George Brasington says, “We’re growing but we still have every intention of maintaining our high-quality repairs and great customer service.”
First opening their doors in 1999, Mountain Electronics specializes in repairing circuit boards from commercial washers and dryers from the US and Canada. Alliance, Dexter, and other manufacturers recommend their repair service whenever asked, and this word-of-mouth advertising has certainly helped them to grow. From its inception, the mission of the company has been to provide excellent repair service for their laundromat customers while maintaining low prices and quick turn-around times. They also have another advantage that sets them apart in the industry: sustainability. Not only do their repairs help to keep circuit boards and machines out of the landfill, but they also use recycled and biodegradable paper and packing materials, and they own a 15Kw solar array which supplies roughly half of their electricity needs. And now in their new location, they have retrofitted the entire space with energy-efficient LED light panels as part of the revival of an otherwise vacant building in their community. “We’re proud to be able to beautifully renovate this old building and operate a growing high-tech business which brings jobs and economic sustainability to our rural area,” says Whitney Brasington, co-owner and CFO of Mountain Electronics. They can efficiently repair more control boards, card readers, inverters, and ignitors for laundromats and the multi-housing industry than ever before.
