This is the second part of a three-part series featuring products that are currently being promoted by companies who would have been showcasing their wares on the Clean Show floor.
Editor’s Note: We asked companies to give us their pitch, just as if you were standing in their booths. Therefore, our usual editorial standard of eliminating promotional statements has been suspended.
EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS
Hi-Steam Tensioning Machines – European Finishing Equipment
We specialize in tensioning machines that hold the garments under tension and use steam and hot air to finish them. Unlike traditional machines that use a heavy metal buck that must be kept hot all day, our machines use steam and hot air only during the operating cycle, so the workplace remains cooler and more comfortable. Also, our machines are much smaller than traditional finishers, so they save on space.
SAM-451 Multi-Garment Finisher – Our most popular machine. Each cleaner can decide what to use the machine for: finishing laundered shirts, dry cleaned garments (blouses, suit jackets, etc.) or both (e.g., laundered shirts in the morning and dry cleaned garments in the afternoon).
TURBO-484 Luxury Shirt Finisher – Perfect for a cleaner who wants the best possible finish for demanding customers willing to pay the price for the best finish. The exhaust hood above the machine removes steam and hot air to keep the operator cool.
TURBO-440 Great Shirt Finisher – A cross between the luxury model (TURBO-484) and economical model (TURBO-Jr. ). An excellent finish at a reasonable price.
TURBO-Jr. Economical Shirt Finisher – Designed for the cleaner looking for an economical and high-production shirt finisher. The machine can also finish blouses. (Note: TURBO-Jr.Plus is an improved version of this machine.)
TURBO-Jr.(E) Electric Shirt Finisher (no boiler) – For the cleaner without an industrial boiler, or the cleaner who wants to stop using old boilers. No steam required.
PAM-510P Tensioning Pants Topper – This comes with or without pleat paddles.
JAM-510R Form Finisher – This is a form finisher for dry cleaned garments – such as suit jackets, polo shirts, wedding gowns (the machine goes up to 96″).

Laundry Carts – G.S. Manufacturing
GSM has had many changes over the past 2 years, including new branding, new people, new processes, new drawing program, new products and new machines. All of the changes have a common goal for G.S. Manufacturing to continue to be a strong, reliable, flexible partner for our customers in this time of uncertainty. With the addition of Solidworks and Driveworks technology, GSM carts have never been easier to modify in order to suit our unique customer requirements.
Although many things have changed, our commitment to providing the highest quality product and customer service at an affordable price has not. We still have a human picking up the phone on the second ring! As one of the few women-owned manufacturing facilities in Canada, I am very proud to be able to move G.S. Manufacturing securely into the future while continuing to provide the highest quality, anodized aluminum, Canadian-made linen carts to laundry facilities in North America.
