Our Story

For over a third of a century, DRB’s journey has been about helping entrepreneurs discover the American dream of running and growing a business. We supported – and often drove – an unprecedented era of growth in the car wash industry. With our support, car washes have limited weather impacts with unlimited wash plans, improved customer experiences with advanced technology and tapped hidden growth potential with data.

Now as a masterbrand that includes DRB Tunnel Solutions (formerly DRB Systems®), DRB In-Bay Solutions (formerly Unitec®) and SUDS®, that tradition continues. With the same pioneering spirit that has driven us from the beginning, we are poised to help car washes maximize production and revenue while navigating new challenges such as ever-increasing competition, consolidation and rising consumer expectations.

The DRB team works together toward a singular goal: To help car washes squeeze every ounce of profitability out of their investments.
