About Ecotex

The optimal solution for every requirement and budget

Made in Germany is a top priority for us

From the center of Europe, we are a complete supplier and modernizer of industrial laundry technology. In Plaidt, in the Eifel region, we produce in our in-house workshop for the entire European market. Machine modernization is a matter of trust. We renew, supply and install used washing lines, dewatering presses, centrifuges, dryers, feeding machines, mangles, folding machines, terry folding machines, tunnel finisher systems, transport technology and belts from leading manufacturers such as Jensen, Kannegiesser and Lavatec.

Through constant expansion and optimization of our business areas, such as most recently with commercial laundry technology from Electrolux Professional, e.g. for old people’s and nursing homes, social institutions, workshops for people with disabilities, hotels, etc., as well as with industrial laundry technology from Alpha by Jensen and Tolon, we are your competent partner when it has to get clean again.
