Hutterites (German: Hutterer), also called Hutterian Brethren (German: Hutterische Brüder), are an ethnoreligious group that is a communal branch of Anabaptists who, like the Amish and Mennonites, trace their roots to the Radical Reformation of the early 16th century. Traditionally the colonies have 75 -150 people, all working together as one company. They are farmers , ranchers and are highly skilled in various trades such as electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc. They like the best products available for their daily lifestyles. We have been supplying commercial laundry equipment to a lot of these colonies since 1996. They have commercial kitchen and baking equipment that would make any restaurant or bakery envy. In Alberta and Saskatchewan there are about 345 colonies. We supply laundry equipment to 8-10 colonies annually.
It takes years to build a good reputation with them, being a tight group they all know what each other colony is doing and trust in each others opinion. If you are not honest and lack integrity, you will not be accepted. We have shared many meals with a lot of them at our place and theirs. We recently had a few of the men over to help me rebuild our sun deck. Proud to be accepted by them!
