Meese Orbitron Dunne Co.
MOD pioneered the design and development of a majority of the bulk linen and laundry carts in use today. Though universally respected as the industry leader, MOD has continued to innovate with the introduction of new bulk trucks that are as visually stunning as they are practical and durable.

The MOD 90PSL series bulk linen truck, for example, features a breakthrough design that combines the double protection of a hinged, lockable lid and durable, lockable doors in a roundtripper suitable for both clean linen delivery and for soiled linen pick up.

The new MOD 100P bulk linen truck features a breakthrough internal rib design and recessed, steel-top ring that nearly doubles the strength, structural integrity and load bearing capacity of the cart vs. other carts on comparable footprints. Bowing out at the top rim under extreme loads is virtually impossible and it handles overloads to 700 lbs. Along with a host of other carts and trucks, MOD offers a complete range of baskets and hampers in classic canvas and vinyl in a wide range of colors and sizes. For specifications, and free downloadable literature, visit our web site.
