Who is Hotsy Equipment Company?

Hotsy Equipment Company of Princeton was started in the summer of 1971 in North Glenn, Colorado by John and Betty Redmond. John worked full time for United Airlines and began selling pressure washers on the side. In 1972, he quit his job with United and moved to Illinois to become a distributor for Hotsy.

In 1989, John and Betty’s son Steve joined the family business. Upon John and Betty’s retirement in 2002, Steve stepped in, where he continues today in his role as President of the company.

Hotsy Equipment Company of Princeton received the ‘Award of Excellence’ for outstanding growth in sales and service in the marketplace. We attribute our success to quality equipment and unsurpassed service after the sale. We have a highly trained service staff that travels to your location to perform service work should the need ever arise.
