About Lapauw – History

Since the mid 20th century, Lapauw has shaped laundry technology.

Did you know that the flexible chest technology is in fact a Lapauw development? And the “steamless laundry” concept would not even exist if it wasn’t for the gas heated ironers, a technology that saw the light in the Lapauw factory, in 1995. Ever since the very first ironer, in 1950 (with flexible chest), Lapauw has been on the vanguard of laundry technology, as Lapauw always adopted an “out of the box” approach to the specific challenges that come with laundry machinery.
But most important of all, owners of the more than 8000 machines sold in over 40 countries know the Lapauw machines as highly efficient, long lived machines that assure the lowest operational cost.
