Elios installs first Infinity rollovers
Spanish carwash company Elios has a second rollover on the market. The machine is called Infinity and it’s a step up compared to their first machine, Nemesis. Recently they installed Infinity rollovers in Mallorca and Xativa.
While Nemesis is considered a midrange machine, Infinity is definitely catering towards the upper segment of the market. According to Elios ‘it is a high-end bridge that incorporates optional features such as high lateral and upper high-pressure washing’ and a foam curtain. And it has a feature called ‘Shake Brush’, where the wheels and doorsteps are cleaned by very specific water movement. All used products including all the wiring are of the highest quality.
Reliability is an important factor for Elios. “We like to design equipment with components and finishes of the highest quality, but all from simplicity”, they recently told to Spanish website Interempresas after an installment on Mallorca. “We think machines should have a long life, they should be very reliable equipment, and the mechanisms should be as least complex as possible and meet the most demanding quality standards.”
Elios has just installed an Infinity rollover in Xativa, where the +B Energías gas station opted for an Elios machine. You’ll also find a brand new Infity machine in Mallorca, where the car wash at the Galp gas station in the town of Pollença has gotten an upgrade.

Meanwhile, France also sees more Elios machines in action. Last month, BKF installed two Elios Nemesis rollovers in a new car wash in the French town of Quincy-Voisins in the Department Seine-et-Marne.
The Infinity is a logical next step after Elios opened their new factory near Valencia last year. The company is run by three brothers, all former engineers at Istobal.
The idea to step up the game came after many petrol stations ordered the Nemesis with lots of add-ons and yet were still surprised about the low price. “This got us thinking”, they told in an earlier interview with Carwashpro.com. “There is much competition in the low and mid range segment of the market, so there is less money to be made. We are confident we can make a difference in the higher segment of the market.”
