“Working together, Continental and Skyline Equipment have secured additional warehouse space in Houston, managed by Continental, for surplus equipment and parts inventory,” said Floyd. The joint relief program also encompasses special financing on all Continental, LG, Econ-O and Girbau Industrial branded vended and on-premise laundry equipment.

Locally, Skyline Equipment is fielding inquiries and working to quickly prepare equipment replacement quotes, assist customers and insurers, and perform installations.

 “CNN is reporting that 80 percent of Hurricane Harvey victims, including businesses, do not have flood insurance,” said Floyd. “Yet the majority of the damage is flood related. That means many of our Texas customers face devastation and must dig deep to get their laundry operations up and running again. We hope that our special, full-service equipment rental program, and prompt equipment and parts replacement, will ease that burden.”
