WALTHAM, Mass., March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mac-Gray Corporation (NYSE: TUC), the nation's premier provider of laundry facilities management services to multi-family housing, today announced it has been awarded Whirlpool's Energy Advantage Award.  This is the third time Mac-Gray has received the honor since the award's inception in 2006.

"We are delighted to have been selected to receive this prestigious award, which reflects our strong commitment to both technology innovation and environmental sustainability," said Stewart G. MacDonald, Mac-Gray's chief executive officer. "We believe that an environmentally friendly approach to business and cost-effective customer solutions are not mutually exclusive.  Mac-Gray was the Whirlpool distributor that deployed the most ENERGY STAR® rated washers and dryers in 2011.  We continue to introduce technological innovations that can drive revenue, benefit our customers and promote water and energy conservation.  Mac-Gray remains the top provider of laundry facilities management to colleges and universities as a direct result of our well-established position as a 'green' company.  Our Lighten the Load™ initiative is leading the way in reducing the carbon footprints of college and university laundry programs."

"Whirlpool Corporation is pleased to announce this award," said Robert English, Whirlpool's General Manager of Global Commercial Laundry. "Mac-Gray stands out as a company dedicated to energy conservation. They have long been the industry leader when it comes to the conversion of laundry facilities from coin to their various card technology platforms, reducing both operational expenses and the CO2 emissions associated with the collection of coins, while increasing customer satisfaction."

Mac-Gray is the recognized leader in technology innovation for the laundry facilities management industry with its award-winning Intelligent Laundry Systems™ suite of products.  In early 2011, the Company introduced its Change Point® payment and monitoring platform, which provides unprecedented financial and service transparency for property owners and enables residents to pay for each wash or dry cycle with a debit card, credit card, or coin.
