Sonny’s, the world’s largest manufacturer of conveyorized car wash equipment, parts, and supplies, has announced the acquisition of PECO Car Wash Systems. PECO is a leading family-owned manufacturer of professional car washing systems with over 50 years of experience.
Both Sonny’s and PECO are experiencing growing demand for their quality equipment in part due to the strong relationships they have with their clients.
“Over the years, we’ve been approached by other companies but we never felt it to be the right fit. Like us, Sonny’s is a second-generation car wash family with client relationships that date back for decades,” said JR Rietsch, president of PECO. “By joining Sonny’s, we now have a full offering in house to make our clients even more successful.”
“I have a great respect for PECO’s team, product, and culture. PECO’s history in the industry, service-oriented background, and customer-focused approach matches well with Sonny’s,” said Paul Fazio, CEO of Sonny’s. "The combination of our equipment lines offers tremendous benefit to our global network of thousands of car wash professionals.”
PECO’s management and staff will remain in place with the factory in Auburn Hills, MI.
