East Longmeadow, MA – April 20, 2012Excel Dryer, manufacturer of the XLERATOR® high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryer, has entered into a strategic partnership with RMSe, a retail construction, project management and fixture installation firm that manages and executes large-scale implementation rollouts, retrofits, resets, and remodel projects for a variety of high-volume retail clientele.

Through this partnership, Excel and RMSe will offer a discounted fee for the installation of XLERATOR hand dryers nationally. RMSe leverages its national buying power to lower material costs, reduce hand dryer installation fees and ensure proper hand dryer installation. Prior to this partnership, customers had to work with separate installation vendors in each market; managing contacts, delivery, installation dates, and invoices.

“Our strategic partnership with RMSe is an industry first,” said William Gagnon, vice president of marketing and key accounts, Excel Dryer. Together, Excel and RMSe have launched a website, www.buyadryer.com that highlights how the power of partnership streamlines the specification, purchase and installation of hand dryers for national remodel or retrofit projects.

“We’re able to provide customers with a fast and cost-effective way to install XLERATOR hand dryers – while ensuring that each dryer is installed properly and operating at peak performance. This partnership provides our customers with a single contact and turn key solution for retrofitting restrooms with the latest in green restroom technology,” said Gagnon.

“Tackling a large scale renovation project with a tight deadline can pose many logistics challenges.  At RMSe, we first develop an efficient plan, and we hire the best project managers and contractors to carry it out. Speed, efficiency and quality are the inevitable results of what we do,” says Brent Dewey, president and CEO of RMSe.

With RMSe’s streamlined process, XLERATOR customers can typically expect a national hand dryer retrofit to be complete in less than 30 days.

RMSe employs 2,000 certified, licensed and bonded technicians in all 50 states, so customers can be sure that each installation is done properly and affordably. Recent RMSe projects include work for Radio Shack, Red Roof Inn, Pepsi, Home Depot, New England Patriots Gillette Stadium, Citibank, FritoLay, and U.S. military bases in New York and Texas.


XLERATOR completely dries hands in 10 seconds—three times faster than conventional dryers.  It uses 80% less energy and delivers a 95% cost savings versus paper towels, while creating a more hygienic restroom environment. It is the only hand dryer to be MADE in USA Certified™, the first hand dryer to be GreenSpec® Listed and helps facilities qualify for multiple LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits by the U.S. Green Building Council. A peer reviewed ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment, of XLERATOR confirmed it reduces the carbon footprint of hand drying by 50-70% when compared to traditional hand dryers and paper towels.
