Speed Queen manufactures its commercial-grade washers and dryers in the company’s production facility in Ripon, Wisconsin. The facility includes a state-of-the-art laboratory in which Speed Queen tests its equipment to last 10,400 cycles.
Founded in 1908 by hardware store owners Joe Barlow and John Seelig, Speed Queen was originally called Barlow and Seelig Manufacturing. The company produced a limited number of washers under the name White Cloud until 1928 when the brand name became Speed Queen.
Speed Queen’s residential products include top- and front-load washers, dryers and stacked washer-dryers, while its commercial products include self-service, multi-housing and on-premises laundries. The Speed Queen website offers information on the company’s products, parts, service and support.
