OPW Vehicle Wash Solutions (VWS) is a growing force in car wash equipment after its formation in January 2019. Comprised of PDQ and the recently acquired Belanger,
OPW VWS will be showcasing innovative new products and industry insight at the International Carwash Association’s (ICA) upcoming Car Wash Show™, which will be held from May 13-15 at the Music City Center in Nashville, TN.
As customer demand for professional washes continues to increase, OPW VWS is leading the effort to bring more value to car washes through system innovations that keep customers coming back.
Kevin Long, President, OPW, offers a clear overview regarding the positive impact that the combined efforts of PDQ and Belanger will have for the industry in a recent Fuel Marketer News interview. On top of what this newly formed OPW business unit is displaying at the show, car wash owners and operators can also leverage OPW expertise, including an interview with Gary Campbell, General Manager, OPW VWS, in Professional Carwashing & Detailing.
As for the products that attendees can get a closer look at, PDQ Booths #723 and #731, and Belanger Booths #1901, #2008, #2100 and #2200 will display these latest car wash technologies:
- PDQ Tandem Surfline: The Tandem Surfline combines high-pressure touch-free and friction washing technologies with an innovative two-bridge design that works in unison to navigate around and over the vehicle, which allows multiple cleaning processes to take place at one time. The result
is a quicker wash cycle that delivers fast and efficient vehicle washing while optimizing the amount of water and chemicals that are used during the cleaning process.
- Belanger Cube Wash™: The Cube Wash is a friction in-bay automatic vehicle-wash system that feature SpinRite™ ShineMitt brushes that deliver a quiet
and gentle washing experience for the driver while providing more than four times the cleaning touches of traditional brushes. The Cube Wash can also be outfitted with patented SpinLite® LED-illuminated wash wheels that can attract
more customers and enhance navigation while still delivering a gentle, quiet wash experience.
Defining What’s Next in the Vehicle Wash Market
The ultimate goal of OPW VWS is to boost return on investment (ROI) for car wash owners, and developing new technology that will provide more efficient washes is at the heart of these efforts. Company leaders like David Dougherty, Senior Product Manager, PDQ, are also dedicated to sharing
