R&B Wire Goes Mobile!
R&B Wire Products is pleased to announce the completion and introduction of their mobile web site – designed specifically for mobile viewing.
Frank Rowe, VP Sales & Marketing shared that it’s no surprise that the web has clearly evolved as the method of choice for product sourcing and comparisons. It’s just more convenient and efficient. Catalogs are surviving but let’s just say their status has changed. Although R&B has had a web site (www.rbwire.com) for many years it was in 2008 when R&B transitioned away from a traditional product catalog to focus on the web as the primary sourcing and reference tool for R&B’s extensive product offering. We saw that the web was the direction to go in from both a cost-effective and user standpoint and we never looked back. Our goal was simply to make things more accessible and efficient for our distributors and their customers.
Now we felt it was the right time to enhance our traditional web site by offering a mobile application. Many of our distributor sales personnel carry a mobile device as their primary sales tool – and that speaks volumes. We wanted to insure the best presentation and results possible by offering an option that compliments mobile viewing and gets answers quickly! Obviously the growth of smart phones and tablets has changed the way we work dramatically. Our traditional site is still very important and the right tool when using traditional computers – now our mobile site offers a more efficient experience when on mobile devices.
We incorporated a feedback mechanism “How do you like our mobile site?” within the new mobile site to allow for any feedback or recommendations that will help us improve the site. As always we welcome the feedback and hope that this will be a valuable feedback tool for us. We thank you in advance for any input.
Visit us at www.rbwire.com on any mobile device and check us out! We hope that you will like the site and that it make business with R&B more efficient and profitable.
PS: R&B still does offer a complete selection of hard copy and digital product specific brochures. They are available online under Distributor Support or contact us at 800-634-0555 ext. 239 or firstname.lastname@example.org to order them and we’ll be pleased to get you whatever you need.
R&B Pole Racks
Bring your customers the convenience of single and double pole racks. These sturdy racks are stainless steel and add a handy way to keep clothes wrinkle-free. Laundry cart pole racks emphasize accessibility and convenience by offering a simple place on which to hang clothes. This option for quick-drying makes doing laundry a quicker, easier task for customers, and the all-in-one nature of the cart means that customers can easily bring their hanging clothes with them as they continue moving. And the stainless steel material makes cleaning a breeze—just use a cleaning agent or a damp cloth!
While the single pole rack is a great option, the double pole rack is an excellent fit for any industry looking to accommodate busy locations and high volume. With the double pole rack, the extra space means more accommodation and more customer satisfaction.

At R&B Wire Products, we’re proud that all of our laundry carts are equipped with our patented “Clean Wheel” casters. This 5 inch caster was specifically designed for laundries. These casters seal the raceways on laundry cart wheels and block debris such as thread and lint. Keeping the greasy ball bearings free from this debris minimizes noise and retains that smooth, gliding sensation during the cart’s movement. It is standard on all our 100, 200, 300 & 350 series laundry carts.
In addition to ease and stability, R&B Clean Wheel casters are designed to be sleek, simple, and unobtrusive. In fact, the design is so ubiquitous to laundry carts that it’s hard to imagine any carts without them!

The NBC Today Show featured “Top Viral Videos for 2012″. One of the videos featured (click link to view video) Dance Like Nobody’s Watching: Laundromat and we spotted our laundry carts! We were even pleased to see the 907 Rack (the rack extender for the double pole rack) used on those carts. It’s a fun video to watch, hope you all liked it as much as we did.
All of us at R&B Wire Products welcome you to our newly created blog. Thank you so much for making us feel good and visiting with us. We’re really actually a pretty neat story and company. I look forward to sharing some company and product insight as we progress that will be worthy of your time to read it. Your feedback down the road will be the real judge of that – just be kind.
How about some quick history on R&B – we’ll make it short and sweet. We’re a 65 year old private California manufacturing company – and yes, we’re still here. One of the few it seems these days. R&B started out making laundry carts for the coin laundry industry back in 1946 and that must have had a great idea because believe it or not as we still do make them. We are without a doubt the industry leader and innovator. Check us out next time you’re in a coin laundry/laundromat – some fun stuff.
People always want to know if we’re close to the ocean and we are pretty close – not lunch at the beach close but 15 minutes close. Now that I think about it we could head to the beach for lunch now and then. Santa Ana where we are located and have been since the mid-70′s is in Orange County, California just inland a bit from Newport Beach. I think there actually is a show about the OC. I’m not going there right now. Nonetheless we are centrally located between San Diego to the south and Hollywood to the north – 60 miles or so in either direction.
We have a great company at R&B and you’ll find that out as we continue to share more and more over time. We manufacture wire, steel, sewn and poly products that help in the transportation of laundry and linen products in numerous industries such as coin laundry, healthcare, hospitality and some other specialty markets. Our product offering is pretty extensive and diverse. You can always check that out on our web site at www.rbwire.com if you want to.
Our business has changed dramatically over the years as we have diversified and been asked to do more and more by our customers. We have always risen to the occasion as we really like to help our customers. We do! Before I forget I should share with you that we are a manufacturer – I know that I said that already but my point is that we sell through distributors. Our distributors rely on us to provide quality products, great customer service and also want us to be a fantastic distribution company when they need us to send products directly to their customers and we are great at that too. What a jewel of a company you’re probably thinking and we are – so thanks.
We have some fun people in the company and over time you’ll get an introduction or at least some information on everyone. As the VP of Sales & Marketing it only made sense – especially to me, that I should launch our R&B blog. Yours truly, Frank Rowe is at the helm giving you a taste of R&B. I hope that you have enjoyed our brief but fulfilling time and look forward to more R&B bits down the road. Your feedback, questions and positive comments – OK any comments, just positively delivered are appreciated.
Thanks for your time and interest and I hope that you’ll be back for more. We are a company that gives our distributors all of our support to make their job selling our products a great and rewarding one. Support your R&B distributors they’ll thank you.
