Our story

From 1973, when the company was founded, until 2012, we established our reputation as one of the leading system manufacturers in the car wash industry. At the time of its founding, the company was known as Ryko Solutions, Inc.

The company acquired MacNeil Wash Systems in 2013. Ryko Solutions acquired a number of distributorships solidifying its nationwide direct service network. Ryko Solutions also re-branded its cleaning solutions brand to CleanTouch.

In 2016, Ryko Solutions changed its name to National Carwash Solutions to better align its brands. We continue to acquire car wash companies throughout the U.S. to complement and expand our business. In 2017 & 2018, NCS acquired 6 more distributorships to further strengthen it’s position as the Car Wash Experts. NCS recently partnered with TSS Car Wash Services, an innovative car wash design and marketing solutions supplier and with Vacutech, the premier brand of central vacuum systems in the car wash industry.


Today, NCS is the parent company of the industry’s leading brands — MacNeil, Ryko, CleanTouch, TSS and Vacutech. Our strategic partners, among the best car wash distributors in North America, include Hi-Performance Wash Systems, Auto-Clean, Arizona Car Wash Systems, Complete Car Wash, NuLook and Badger Land.

With our rich history and extensive experience in the car wash business, our company is uniquely positioned to provide the finest car wash systems and support, cleaning solutions, maintenance and repair services, training courses, customized marketing solutions, and Vacuums in North America. We continue to grow along with our customer base, offering the products and services that help car wash operators grow their number of customers, increase loyalty and become more profitable.
