How Landa Karcher became the premier name in industrial pressure washers

Landa was founded in 1969 by Larry Linton, a young banker in Portland, Oregon fresh out of business school, who invested a $600 tax refund and launched a pressure washer business. When suppliers couldn’t keep up with his demand for pressure washers, he started manufacturing them himself. The brand name was coined when the company’s name evolved from “Linton and Associates” to “L-and-A” and ultimately to “LANDA.” Within 30 years LANDA became North America’s largest manufacturer of industrial pressure washers with more than 300 hot and cold water models as well as a broad line of automatic aqueous parts washers and wash-water treatment and recycling systems.

In 1998, LANDA was purchased by the Harbour Group, a Midwest investment firm, and LANDA became a flagship brand for the new company, C-Tech Industries. Five years later C-Tech was sold to Kärcher, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional cleaning equipment with headquarters in Germany. In 2016, Landa officially became Landa Karcher Group, signaling to the market that we are the powerhouse in the cleaning industry. We recognize the tremendous value that the Karcher brand plays throughout the world, and we are proud to bear the name on our equipment.
