There are certain indelible traits that make America what it is, like strength, leadership and quality. And these characteristics do more than define America—they define American products. The first Speed Queen ® laundry machine was built in Ripon, Wisconsin, in 1908, and we’ve been proudly headquartered there ever since. In fact, we’ve never produced home laundry equipment from anywhere else. It’s where we developed our Midwestern work ethic of putting quality before all else. It’s where more than 2,000 dedicated employees work side by side to deliver on our promise of customer satisfaction without exception. And it’s where the long-lasting machines sold by independent appliance dealers across the nation are born. Built better to last longer. It’s the American way.
