Number One In North America for High Pressure Cleaning Equipment
Hotsy’s history began in 1970 when a gentleman by the name of Bob Cohen became aware
of a steam cleaner that was built by Slifer Manufacturing, and marketed by Kanco
Tech. Early models were known for their hot water steam cleaning, a term often used
today to describe pressure washers.
Bob was impressed by these heavy-duty cleaners and ended up buying both companies,
later changing the name to Hotsy, which was a derivative of "hot systems". It soon
became the most recognized brand – along with its trademark red - in the industry
for high-pressure cleaning equipment.
Engineering Excellence and Innovation Since 1970
For the past forty years Hotsy has established a leadership standard in industrial
quality, performance, and dealer support. The early steam cleaners have been replaced
with an impressive line of over 100 models of hot water and cold-water pressure
washers, a fine array of automatic parts washers and an extensive line of high-quality
detergents designed specifically for both. In addition, a rather large selection
of pressure washer parts and accessories makes Hotsy the clear choice for high-pressure
Hotsy has backed its equipment with North America’s largest network of trained service
centers. Hotsy dealers are part of a large family
– one with an amazing history in the cleaning industry. Their knowledge and experience
is unsurpassed. In fact, many dealers keep it in the family with their children
taking over dealerships when they retire.
Today, Hotsy has manufacturing plants in Camas, Washington, Monterrey, Mexico as
well as Reggio, Italy. Hotsy has distinguished its legacy with four decades of innovation,
quality and unmatched performance. No other name in the pressure washer industry
has enjoyed such a Red Hot history as Hotsy!
