Tommy Car Wash Systems

Holland, Michigan

Tommy Car Wash Systems has been in business since 1969. It is a third-generation car wash operator, manufacturer, and visionary — providing much more than vacuums.

What’s New/Best Seller • Tommy 2.0 Drying System.

Advantages Features • The heart of the Tommy 2.0 Drying System is a very powerful 10-hp centrifugal blower producer. The housings are made of reinforced cross-linked polymer plastic, while the impeller is made of powder-coated steel material and designed with single-thickness backward curved blades. The number of blowers required is based on the length of the tunnel, most commonly 18 on a 130’ wash installed directly on the blower arch. Tommy also offers heated dryers and drying huggers as optional equipment to complete the drying system.

Advantages/Features • DryLite Dryers connect with passing drivers by lighting up the exit area of a car wash.

Clean, dry cars and an end-to-end light show improve car wash visibility, and improved visibility improves the business.

What’s New/Best Seller • Super Air Shammee II.
