An Update on ProDryers, the Hand Dryer Guru

An Update on ProDryers:

It’s been a while since we posted to our blog. We’ve been extremely busy! Some of you may know, but ProDryers is actually a Category Five Technologies, INC. online shopping experience as well as several other high quality niche market online sites. Our 2nd most popular online shopping experience which is growing fast is ProDrinkingFountains.com. ProDryers and ProDrinkingFountains are both experiencing heavy growth as we have partnered with a few new trusted manufacturers that fit our space perfectly.

We have strengthened our existing partnership with Elkay, the #1 drinking fountain manufacturer in the U.S., and since doubled Elkay monthly sales with a commitment to stocking Elkay to offer our customers rock bottom prices with fast free shipping. Elkay also manufacturers sinks, faucets, and more. Our prices are extremely difficult to beat along with our well-trained sales and customer service teams. Elkay recently visited and provided extensive training so our team is ready to handle even the toughest questions. We expect to potentially double our sales yet again in 2016.

We partnered with Sloan earlier this year which was always a long-term goal of ours. Sloan brings us the ability to offer our customers the industry’s leading flushometers, faucets, sinks, toilets, urinals and more. We have also taken on a commitment to stocking with Sloan as an initial step towards becoming a leading national supplier for Sloan. Our Sloan sales have literally sky rocketed fast as our customer base has responded well to the new partnership. Our Sloan prices are extremely difficult to beat as well.

For the above two reasons, we have been forced to open up a 4th local warehouse. We also have national fulfillment centers to pull from as we carry a massive inventory of hand dryers, restroom accessories, drinking fountains and more for a small business. This enable us to truly provide extremely low pricing to our customers.

Although we have not been as vocal on the blog lately, we are moving fast and hard at work to provide or customers with elite shopping experiences from start to finish. As always, our goal is to earn customers for life, not just 1 sale. We exist because of our customers and thank each and every one of them sincerely for the loyalty they have shown us over the years.

Call us at 888-503-7937 to discuss any hand dryers, baby changing stations, commercial restroom accessories and any need for commercial plumbing products such as drinking fountains, sinks, flush valves, faucets, toilets, urinals, and more.

Happy New Year from The Hand Dryer Guru

Thank you to all of our customers for an amazing 2014. Because of you, we were able to grow our company in so many ways. We are truly humbled to have such a great customer base that supports us and continues to give us the opportunity to serve as a trusted hand dryer, restroom accessory, drinking fountain, plumbing supply and floor cleaning equipment supplier (to name a few). Here’s a quick summary of some of the major accomplishments we were able to make in 2014:

We were able to expand ProDryers by partnering with new trusted manufacturers such as Zurn, Buckeye, Betco, CARR, Elkay and more.   We listen to our customers. Products that did not carry a high satisfactory rate were dropped.

We were able to expand ProDrinkingFountains with hundreds of Elkay products allowing us to better serve our customers with a full offering of Elkay’s wide range of products from drinking fountains to commercial sinks and other plumbing supplies. Our Elkay sales have been through the roof in growth and we thank our customers so much for the opportunity.

We built ProFloorMachines and partnered with top companies like Clarke, Mercury, Sandia, Betco and more in order to provide a full range of floor machines and floor cleaning equipment.

MRDIndustrial was designed and deployed which now offers a full industrial shopping experience and continues to grow fast with new industrial supplies.

And our proudest accomplishment was the rebirth of ProDryers. We completely redesigned our entire store front and moved our platform to a new e-commerce provider. It’s a move we should have made a long time ago as our store and shopping experience for hand dryers and restroom products quickly surpassed the capabilities of our original e-commerce solution. Our navigation menu was completely redesigned to offer our shoppers a quicker and easier method of pinpointing exactly what they need out of our thousands of products. The new and improved ProDryers has been well received by our customer base with a last quarter lift in overall sales. The feedback has been very positive and our new design has resulted in happy shoppers, which is our Goal.

Lastly, we have expanded our warehouse space and customer service team. We are staffed to offer top tier customer care and our team is made up of passionate individuals that will go the extra mile to satisfy our customers.

We wish all of our customers (and future customers) the very best in 2015. We have so much more planned. In fact, we have already partnered with another major manufacturer and will be moving forward as a stocking distributor right out of the gate. Look for some huge announcements early 2015 as we get the ball rolling! We are extremely excited to partner with this manufacturer and we expect very fast growth.  Thank you for allowing us to live out our dream as one of the top commercial and industrial suppliers of hand dryers, restroom accessories, drinking fountains, commercial plumbing supplies, commercial floor cleaning equipment and more. The Category Five Technologies family is here to stay and our ambitions will continue to drive our company forward with the help of our customers. Happy New Year!

Hand Dryers and Over 2500 Restroom Products

Dance Studios Should Consider Hand Dryers, Drinking Fountains, Floor Machines, and Baby Changing Stations

With this article, we are going to focus on a smaller businesses and how it can benefit from hand dryers and save significant dollars in paper towel costs and maintenance associated with paper towel.  Let’s look at an example of small businesses that most suppliers overlook.  We at ProDryers love working on behalf of small businesses because small businesses fuel the economy.  Call us any time at 888-50-DRYER (even if you are just buying one hand dryer) and we’ll give you solid expert advice on the different hand dryer technologies available today and aid your decision in choosing the best hand dryer for your facility.

For example, take dance studios.  I don’t usually get personal with a blog, but dance studios are something I encounter often as my daughter is in several competition dances and non-competition as well.  I have been going to her dance studio several times per week for about 6 years now.  Dance studios are some of the filthiest places on earth in terms of the dirt, sweat, and grime accumulated on the floors.  Dancers’ hands are always touching the filthy floors and spreading germs throughout the dance studio.  I see some major opportunities for dance studios.  First, consider the ExtremeAir CPC hand dryer.  It is the only hand dryer to date that kills 99.6% of germs on and around hands.  It literally sanitizes hands even if the soap dispensers have run out.  It’s been independently tested and proven to kill nearly all germs.  It uses cold plasma which has been used in hospitals for years.  It’s the 4th state of matter and it is found in mountain top air or ocean breezes among many.  Cold plasma cracks bacteria open like an egg shell and destroys it.  I would suggest the ExtremeAir CPC to dance studios because it greatly reduces the spread of germs because it literally sanitizes hands.  It would also pay for itself with paper towel cost savings and maintenance issues related with paper towel such as broken or jammed dispensers, battery issues, and paper towel stuffed toilets.  The other opportunity dance studios should take advantage of is investing in a floor scrubber to keep floors cleaner.  We also own ProFloorMachines.com and would be happy to advise on a machine perfect for cleaning dance studio floors.  Also, convenience to parents is a huge area where dance studios should pay attention.  Word of mouth advertising goes a long way with small businesses and dance studios are no exception.  Many parents have babies and small children still in diapers.  Every dance studio should have a baby changing station.  It should almost be required by law, and most parents would back me up on that strong opinion.  Parents can’t be expected to change a baby’s diaper without a baby changing station.  It’s the most frustrating event a parent can ever deal with.  For as little as 159.00, and free shipping, we can have a baby changing station to your dance studio in just a few days.  Our most popular seller, the Koala KB200 is just under $200.  It’s an investment in the quality of the dance studio.  Lastly, drinking fountains and water dispensing machines such as bottle filling stations would be very beneficial to all dance studios as the dancers are pretty much tired and thirsty the entire time they are at the studio.  We also own and operate ProDrinkingFountains.com where we offer a gigantic range of drinking fountains, water coolers, and bottle filling stations all perfect for dance studios.

Category Five Technologies specializes in hand dryers, restroom accessories, drinking fountains, and floor machines just to name a few.  Visit some of online shopping experiences like ProDryers.com, ProDrinkingFountains.com and ProFloorMachines.com or call us at 888-503-7937.  We are here to serve all businesses, even the small business such as dance studios.

Funny Hand Dryer Uses – from Drying Babies Butts, Dogs, Fingers, Toes, to Super Sweaty Armpits, The ExtremeAir Does it All

If you haven’t seen our latest hand dryer video, check it out. The ExtremeAir hand dryer has a face and even talks. He gets used and abused by the craziest people. One must wonder what a hand dryer really sees in its lifetime. And… the life of a hand dryer is 7-10 years on average. Imagine all the scenarios a hand dryer must be confronted with. If a hand dryer could talk, what stories would it tell us? We’ve all seen those drunken video postings on YouTube where drunk girls (even dudes, but we don’t care about them!) let the hand dryer blow massive air into their mouths and force their faces to ripple like a splash on a still pond. It doesn’t seem fun and doesn’t seem funny either, but it sure seems to entertain the drunk ladies (and dudes – cut it out guys, we don’t want to see it!).

In this video, we tried to keep it fun while focusing on the funny people in the restroom and how it would look from a hand dryer’s point of view. All of the actors in the video were locals to the Livonia, Michigan area. A couple high school students from Churchill high school were used.  A huge thanks from the ProDryers team goes out to their efforts.

This video may haunt some the next time a public restroom is used. You may visualize the hand dryer watching, and talking to you. You may wonder what he is saying to you…

As always, get the best prices on all hand dryers such as the ExtremeAir (sorry, it doesn’t really talk), the Xlerator hand dryer, the Dyson Airblade, all World Dryer models (consider the L-974 SlimDri ADA compliant surface-mounted high speed hand dryer), the newest technology on the block – the iStorm hand dryer, and so much more.
