MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EVI Industries, Inc.

(“Spynr”), EVI’s twentieth (20th) acquisition. Spynr is a highly specialized full-service marketing agency with deep roots in the commercial laundry industry. Spynr provides owners of laundry businesses a variety of marketing services, including branding, web design, digital advertising, social media services, content development, SEO, and other related services aimed to reach and attract customers to their laundry businesses efficiently and effectively.
Spynr was founded by Mr. Dennis Diaz, a young and dynamic entrepreneur with over twelve years of experience in the commercial laundry industry.

Henry M. Nahmad, EVI’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Our customers make significant financial investments in their laundry businesses. Given the competitive environment, maximizing the return on their investment also requires laundry business owners to think and deliver across the entire marketing spectrum, from branding to web design to digital marketing, and beyond. To that end, we seek to provide these critical services to existing and prospective customers such that they may achieve their return expectations. Through Spynr, we expect to deliver the industry and our Company these necessary marketing capabilities.”
Spynr will operate as a subsidiary of EVI under its current name and from its present location, will continue to be led by Mr. Diaz and all its associates, and have the full extent of EVI’s resources with which to execute on the Company’s long-term growth strategy. In addition, Mr. Diaz will serve as EVI’s Director of Marketing.
