Celebrating 120 Years

Company News, EMEA, Supplier News

Miele has launched the Octoplus 120 series of commercial washing machines and dryers for medium-scale laundry needs including care homes and boutique hotels, as it marks its 120th year in business.


Boasting a load capacity of 9 Kg, the Octoplus models bridge the gap between the company's Little Giants and larger industrial scale machines. Washing machines include 55 different programmes which can be pre-installed on the machines to suit a broad range of requirements. From settings that cater for hygiene regulations, to specific washes based on garment types such as bed linen and work wear, customers can take advantage of the range’s adaptable Profitronic L Vario controls to tailor the machine to specific users and laundry environments.


The PW 6080 XL and PT 7186 XL within the Octoplus range, also comply with Miele’s sustainability pledge by reducing water and energy usage by up to six percent, whilst still delivering efficient and superior performance through short programme cycles. Both washer and dryer models feature Miele’s unique honeycomb drum, cushioning laundry to ensure gentle fabric care.


Sam Bailey, sales & marketing director for the professional division of Miele, says:

"The launch of the new Octoplus 120s demonstrates our continued commitment to providing quality products for new and existing customers – something that has been at the forefront of Miele’s success for 120 years now.


"We understand the various challenges faced in busy laundry environments across different sectors, and we are constantly looking for innovative ways to improve our models. Octoplus customers will not only benefit from the increased load capacity and versatility of programmes but will also have the Miele quality guarantee that assures the longevity of the product."


Miele was founded in 1899 by the Miele and Zinkann families with just 11 employees. Originally a German manufacturer of cream separation machinery, Miele has gone on to become a global premium appliances brand and is grounded in the philosophy, Immer Besser (Forever Better).
