RIPON, Wis., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified Inc. is delighted to honor Speed Queen® with the Women's Choice Award® for America's Most Recommended™ Luxury Washer & Dryer for a third year in a row. This award designation is based on a national survey that was distributed to tens of thousands of women across America who were asked to select the brands that they would highly recommend to their family and friends.
"The Women's Choice Award's mission is to identify which brands are most recommended by women," said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder. "By carrying the Women's Choice Award seal, brands like Speed Queen signify their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices."
"Speed Queen Home Laundry is honored to be selected by women three consecutive years in a row as the most recommended brand in the Luxury Washer & Dryer category," said Mike Schoeb, President and CEO of Alliance Laundry Systems. "The Women's Choice Award seal of excellence confirms our commitment to our customers to manufacture the highest-quality laundry solutions. For more than 100 years, Speed Queen has dedicated itself to providing consumers with durable, commercial-grade home laundry machines that deliver a superior wash result."
Female consumers represent a driving economic powerhouse, controlling 65%, or approximately $20 trillion annually, in global spending and more than 80% of US spending, according to the Harvard Business Review and the Continuum's Women and Children Research Group. Coupling that with a recent Nielsen report on global trust in advertising, which stated that 92% of consumers trust recommendations from people they know over any other form of advertising, reveals the significance of being an America's Most Recommended brand by women.
Passi commented on how the Women's Choice Award serves as a competitive differentiator in today's cluttered marketplace by explaining, "When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the number one consumer – women."
"We are pleased to salute Speed Queen for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide," said Passi.
