ISTOBAL USA, the North American subsidiary of the Spanish multinational specializing in high-quality car wash and care solutions for all vehicle types, grew in the petroleum and convenience store sector by over 50% last year.

2 – 4 October, the Group will attend the NACS Show in Atlanta backed up by the success of its ISTOBAL FLEX5 rollover and with the objective to continue boosting car wash growth in service stations, professional retail car washes, C-Stores and auto dealers. 

At booth 5055, ISTOBAL USA will display the ISTOBAL FLEX5, the first transformable rollover in the market and the most popular ISTOBAL technology in the US, particularly in the 5 brush configuration, due to its speed and wash quality.  

ISTOBAL’s North American Director of Sales, Ian Burton, stated that ISTOBAL USA’s growth in the petroleum and C-Store market continues at a record pace. In this sense, he highlighted that “ISTOBAL FLEX5 combination of models continues to aid in this growth with a mixture of speed and performance, both needed by the sector to be success”.

The revolutionary ISTOBAL FLEX5 can meet all car wash needs thanks to its versatility. It has the ability to respond to increased car wash demands without changing machines, and it can be adapted as needs change. It can transform from 3 to 5 brushes (or vice versa) in just 1 working day to increase capacity and throughput at the facility.

Targeted to all types of customers needing faster wash processes, the ISTOBAL FLEX5 offers five different types of washes: 3 brush configuration, 5 brush configuration (providing up to a 30% reduction in wash and dry times), hybrid (by adding high pressure to the machine), touch free (configured without brushes) and combo (allowing customers to choose the wash they want: friction with 3 or 5 brushes, touch free or a combination of both).
