HOWCO-LOGO-Car Wash Distributor

Your Comprehensive Collaborator in Car Wash Success

Since its founding in 1969 in Charlotte, NC, by the late Charles "Charlie" Howard, Howco has provided turnkey consultation to help car wash operators launch their businesses and achieve long-term success in the industry.

Today the Howco team is comprised of over two dozen professionals operating from our home office and 90,000-square-foot warehouse in Charlotte, as well as positioned strategically throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. We have built, equipped, and/or serviced nearly 500 full- and self-service car washes throughout this area.

We work in tandem with our conveyor, express, automatic, and self-service car wash investors to assist and guide them with market identification; site selection and analysis; financial and business plan development; project management; car wash equipment selection and installation; chemical products; car wash supplies; operational training; marketing and branding strategies; and ongoing service and preventive maintenance.

Regarding the growth, success, and longevity of Howco, owner and CEO Chuck Howard states, "It's the people. Our employees are highly trained and very experienced in every aspect of the car wash business. That, coupled with our continually enhanced carwash technology, design, methods of site selection, and layout prowess, saves our customers a lot of time and money in every phase of building and maintaining a car wash. It's our people offering their dedication and knowledge to help others be successful in the car wash business."
