Excel Dryer is the first dryer manufacturer to be awarded a Schedule Contract by the GSA

East Longmeadow, Mass. – Excel Dryer, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of American-made hand and hair dryers and creator of the industry standard XLERATOR® high-speed hand dryer, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Schedule Contract by the General Services Administration. Excel Dryer is the first hand dryer manufacturer to receive this honor because XLERATOR is completely made in the United States, energy efficient, represents a major cost savings and is an excellent source reduction alternative. Under the Schedules Program (also referred to as Multiple Award Schedules and Federal Supply Schedules), the GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to over 10 million commercial supplies and services at volume discount prices.

Online access to contract ordering information, terms and conditions, up-to-date pricing, and the option to create an electronic delivery order are available through GSA Advantage!, a menu-driven database system. Visit GSA Advantage! at: http://www.gsaadvantage.gov.


“We’re very pleased to receive this recognition from the GSA,” said Denis Gagnon, president, Excel Dryer, Inc. “The Schedule Contract will enable more government organizations to be able to specify this sustainable product in their facilities, allowing them to minimize their paper waste and promote better environmental responsibility.”

Unlike conventional hand dryers, which average 30 to 45 seconds of drying time, Excel Dryer’s XLERATOR hand dryer completely dries hands 3 times faster (in 10 seconds) and uses 80% less energy than conventional hand dryers. XLERATOR also delivers a 95% cost savings when compared to paper towels, is the first hand dryer to achieve GreenSpec® listing and helps facilities qualify for LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Currently, XLERATOR is installed in a variety of busy, high traffic restrooms, including some high-profile federal destinations such as the United States Green Building Council’s headquarters in Washington D.C., the USS Nimitz Aircraft Carrier and numerous Federal Prisons. XLERATOR is also the official specification of the U.S. Navy.
