The Speed Queen Story
Back in 1908, Joe Barlow and John Seelig, two industrious hardware store owners in Ripon, Wisconsin, purchased several hand-powered washing machines from a company in Kansas City, MO. After experimenting with the washing machines, the inventors devised a way to increase the machine's efficiency through high-speed gearing. The partners purchased the manufacturing rights from the company in Kansas City and Barlow and Seelig manufacturing was born. The company produced a limited amount of washers named the "White Cloud" until 1928 when the brand name became Speed Queen. And a legend was born.
