TORRANCE, Calif. & BUFFALO, N.Y. — Westmatic Corp., a large vehicle wash system manufacturer, announced today the opening of the company’s newest regional office in Torrance, California.
“The new Torrance location will provide sales support, parts and service for Westmatic’s west coast customers,” states Steve Wawro, president of Westmatic. “Our new Key Account Manager for California, Mattias Nilsson, and Johanna Sundell, Westmatic’s global group marketing director will operate out of this new facility.”
Since 1974, Westmatic has specialized in the design and manufacture of automated wash systems for buses, trucks and trains. Westmatic’s systems are designed and engineered to exceed some of the world’s most stringent regulations for using water and power resources. What’s unique to Westmatic is the RENAREN water purification system, which is standard on many European systems. The system uses electro flocculation to purify oil-mixed wastewater, which can reach a purification level of more than 99 percent, prior to discharge into the sewage system.
The Westmatic Group is a global company headquartered in Arvika, Sweden, with companies in the U.S. and Canada. Westmatic was formed in 1974 by Jan Sundell, who designed the first large vehicle wash system and who remains active in the company today. Westmatic wash systems have been installed in over 3,000 locations worldwide.
Westmatic Corp. provides production, sales and service support, and equipment installation for the U.S. market. All machines sold in the United States are manufactured in Buffalo, N.Y., and the company is in full compliance with the Department of Transportation’s “Buy America” requirements. Buy America provisions ensure that transportation infrastructure projects are built with American-made products.
