You're not done until you cross the finish line.

For more than 100 years, Chicago has been the leader in innovative flatwork finishing equipment. Our customers' laundry systems process hundreds of millions of pounds of laundry every day. From high-end resorts to the most powerful commercial laundries in the industry, the world's leading organizations turn to Chicago. We are family-owned and operated, designing and manufacturing flatwork finishing equipment right here in the U.S.A.

As industry professionals know, the real cost of doing laundry is on the clean side. Laundry has to be washed—but that's just the start. After the laundry is clean there are big decisions that affect cost, efficiency and quality.

In short, your choice in finishing equipment matters.

That's where Chicago comes in. As a company that produces the widest range of separating, feeding, ironing, folding and linen handling equipment in the world, we know the clean side of laundry better than anyone. Our equipment takes sheets, pillowcases and table linen, as well as towels, blankets, patient gowns, scrubs and other tumble-dried items and processes them efficiently and accurately into neat, perfectly-pressed and streamlined packages. We know how to make your business not only look better but operate more cost effectively.

When Chicago® first debuted at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, we sold cabinet dryers and wooden washers. As the company grew and the industry evolved, we saw that the best way to make an impact on our customer's bottom line was to keep innovating, to meet changing needs. Across four generations, Chicago is still focused on the same thing: Making machines more intuitive and more efficient so they meet – and exceed - our customer's expectations.

We may not be the only manufacturer of flatwork finishing equipment, but we are one of the few that does so exclusively. That focus allows us to excel.

We have hundreds of different models and configurations that fit any need, from companies processing just a few hundred pounds a week to millions of pounds a day. From small, single-source, on-premise laundries and party rental facilities all the way up to complex systems used by large industrial operations processing laundry for a variety of clients. We have the right solution for each individual customer.

Innovation is very personal to us at Chicago. Often our product design and enhancements are born out of industry experience, ergonomic considerations, and a close relationship with customer feedback. We always have an ear open to both the industry and our customer's needs and when new demands arise, we resolve them by designing new and better products.

From industry-changing solutions, such as our patented Edge® Cornerless feeding technology and energy-efficient Power Burner heating systems, to our CHI system technology that allows state-of-the-art control, tracking and management, our equipment evolves to fit your needs. Our products can help make your operation more efficient and cost effective.
