Centrum Force Announces Strategic Partnership

ANN ARBOR, MI – February 14, 2020. Centrum Force announced today that it has reached an agreement with Turkish rug cleaning equipment manufacturer Ergin Makina to exclusively sell, distribute and service the company’s full-line of products in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The agreement becomes effective immediately.

Tom Monahan, Centrum Force’s co-founder and sole owner made the announcement from the company’s own manufacturing plant in Albion, Michigan. “The Centrum Force family of products offers an exceptional blend of value, quality and full-featured functionality for rug cleaning shops of all size. To offer our customers an even greater range of options, we have been looking for the opportunity to offer a lineup of machines that are highly affordable and that complement our existing Centrum Force and high-production MOR product lines,” said Monahan. “When we met with Ergin Makina last year during a trip to the region, I was delighted to discover a company and an ownership that was highly akin to the core values that exemplifies Centrum Force. Things like a consistent commitment to quality, innovation, high-grade materials and craftmanship.”

Abdulla Ergin is the founder, engineer and patent holder of Ergin Makina, which is based in İzmir, Turkey. He has been active in the rug cleaning machine business since 1968 and his company has a near five-decade history in the rug industry, dating back to its founding in the late 1970’s. Its manufacturing facility includes 45,000 square feet of modern workspace. Located in one of the world’s epicenters of rug trade for thousands of years, Ergin Makina holds the distinction of being Turkey’s most well-known and successful rug cleaning equipment manufacturer. The company’s customer-base now spans some 50 countries around the world.

Ergin Makina products to be added to the Centrum Force product line include several models of rug-wringing centrifuges, an automatic dusting machine, rug wash/wringer and a finishing machine. These products will fit synergistically into our company’s existing product line, offering customers even more choices in terms of value, features and cost.

Centrum Force is proud to be Ergin Makina’s exclusive North America's sales arm and distributor in North America. All machines will be built to Centrum Force’s specifications, including electronics and other critical features
required to smoothly install in rug cleaning plants of all sizes. Centrum Force will provide the same exemplary service and support for Ergin Makina machines as it does for all of its Centrum and MOR products.

Centrum Force's website will be updated to reflect this arrangement soon. Specifications and costs will eventually be listed and updated in both English and Spanish. For more information, contact Tom Monahan at tom@centrumforce.com or by telephone at 734-260-5038.
