O’Hanrahan Purchases Jim Coleman Company And Hanna Car Wash Systems

Two of the car wash industry's most prominent brands, Jim Coleman Company and Hanna, have been purchased by car wash chemical veteran Ed O'Hanrahan. The new company, redubbed Coleman Hanna Car Wash Systems LLC, is led by O'Hanrahan and Russell Coleman.

The Hanna and Coleman brands were born in the 1960s and emerged as two of the most significant car wash equipment companies. Hanna specializes in full-service wash equipment, while Coleman has been a stalwart in the self-service industry.

The Jim Coleman Company acquired the assets of the Hanna brand of conveyor carwash equipment in 2005, making Coleman the first company to provide equipment and service to the self-serve, conveyor, and in-bay car wash markets.

"This is an exciting transaction for Howco and our customers," said Howco Vice President and General Manager Rick Thompson. "Howco has been selling and servicing Hanna and Coleman equipment since 1969 and 1999, respectively, and Ed is committed to manufacturing the best car wash equipment available. We look forward to continuing these long-time relationships."
