Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division Now Offers Jet Towel in White

SEATTLE, March 19, 2014 – The Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division Jet Towel®, the world's first 10-second hand dryer, and the first to use two jets of air to dry hands, launched the new Slim series white finish model (JT-SB116JH-W-NA) in the U.S. today.

Formerly available in only charcoal grey with a silver front panel (JT-SB116JH-G-NA), the new white finish will provide more flexibility when it comes to matching various restroom color schemes. It also offers building owners more options for including the world's premiere hand dryer in their buildings.

"The white finish will be a perfect fit for hospitals, offices, or other white dominant restrooms, while the grey slim model will match the stainless fixtures," says Michael Blaskowsky, general manager, U.S. Jet Towel operations, PACARC, LLC, the first U.S. distributor of the Mitsubishi Electric Jet Towel. "Whatever your restroom color scheme, there is a Jet Towel to meet your needs."

"The Slim series – the eighth generation of the Mitsubishi Electric Jet Towel – received an extremely positive reception after launching in the U.S. last year," adds Blaskowsky. With this new version, restrooms looking for a brighter and lighter feel are now able to incorporate the Jet Towel into their operations.

"This is just one exciting development among many, and we look forward to offering even more innovative products to our customers in the future," continues Blaskowsky.
