Electrolux and Laundrylux celebrate 60 year partnership

 

 

March 10, 2015 – Keith McLoughlin, Electrolux AB President and CEO, recently invited Neal Milch, CEO of Laundrylux, to Sweden for a special ceremony. On behalf of Electrolux, McLoughlin presented Milch with a crystal award to celebrate 60 years of doing business together.

“We have a unique relationship with the Milch family and Laundrylux, and it hasKeithNealELXmtg2015 only grown stronger over the years,” stated McLoughlin. “We value our partnership and look forward to working together for many more years to come.”

“I was honored to receive this award and have our partnership recognized in such a meaningful way,” shared Milch. “We have a great deal of mutual respect and work closely together on many initiatives such as marketing and product development. Now with my son entering the business, the third generation at Laundrylux, we will be taking our partnership to even greater heights.”

A partnership that began with an accident at sea…

To learn how this great partnership began, we have to go back to the mid 1950s. A young man with an engineering background and experience in laundry equipment sales and service was hired to assess damage to the laundry equipment aboard the Swedish American Line’s M/S Stockholm after the ship collided with the Andrea Doria, near the Island of Nantucket. The young man’s name was Bernard Milch, founder of Laundrylux.

This was Milch’s first introduction to the Swedish-made Wascator (later named Wascomat) front-load stainless steel washers. He was extremely impressed that the machines remained functional after the water-filled laundry area was drained. Milch made inquiries to the Swedish company and eventually purchased a Wascator washer for testing and technical investigation.

Milch’s testing confirmed his initial confidence in the Wascator machines. He was convinced that commercial front-load washers could revolutionize the industry. Milch obtained the sales and marketing rights for Wascator machines in North America and, since he ate lunch at the “Automat” and liked the sound of the name, decided to use the name Wascomat for marketing. He seized the opportunity and the industry was changed forever.

Electrolux, which later purchased Wascator, credits Wascomat’s growth in North America to the extraordinary marketing efforts of Milch and his team.  Since then, Laundrylux has become a valued partner representing the Electrolux Professional and Wascomat commercial laundry brands in North America.

Convenience Store Owner Named Huebsch® Store Owner of the Quarter

February 17th, 2015


 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Convenience Store Owner Named Huebsch® Store Owner of the Quarter

Adjoining laundromat proves smart investment

 

RIPON, Wis. – (Feb. 17, 2015) – Huebsch®, the expert in commercial laundry efficiency, has named Raj Patel the latest recipient of its Store Owner of the Quarter award for his Speed Coin Laundry, Convenience Store_Speed Coin Laundry-coinwash.coma laundromat adjacent to his convenience store and gas station located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

 

“Mr. Patel’s success over the past 20 years is inspiring. From having essentially nothing when his family immigrated to the United States to now owning multiple successful businesses, he emulates the American Dream,” said Kathryn Rowen, North American sales manager for Huebsch. “We are so glad he found success in the laundry industry, and that Huebsch could support him in achieving his business goals.”

 

Patel was 14 years old when his family moved to California from India in 1995 with just $500. They soon moved from California to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and saved their earnings in order to purchase a convenience store and gas station. After seven years building a successful business in Chattanooga, the family’s next move was northwest to Murfreesboro where they purchased Marathon Discount Tobacco, an eight pump gas station and convenience store with an adjoining store front. They filled this space with a liquor store, which they also owned and operated.

 

Unfortunately, even with a commerce boom in the area, the liquor store wasn’t bringing in the revenue Patel had hoped.Raj Patel-coinwash.com In 2013, he sought out a more sustainable and profitable, yet somewhat hands-off, investment. This search led him to the vended laundry industry and his region’s authorized Huebsch distributor, Nashville-based National Laundry Equipment.

 

“After comparing various manufacturers I came to the conclusion that Huebsch machines are a better value than any others available,” said Patel. “And, by choosing Huebsch, I was confident I would receive customized and knowledgeable support from its network of professionals.”

 

Patel quickly received a tailored business loan from Huebsch Financial, and also Raj Patel & National Laundry Equipment-coinwash.com-001relied on his distributor’s support and expertise throughout renovations and installation of 36 machines. Among many aesthetics updates, a doorway now connects the convenience store and laundromat from the inside. Speed Coin Laundry opened in July 2014 and, as Patel intended, it has already been beneficial in driving customers to his convenience store, while also proving profitable independently. When cars pull up to pump gas, they learn about the laundromat for potential use in the future. Alternatively, laundromat customers are likely to venture into the convenience store and purchase snacks to enjoy while they wait – something that wasn’t as common when the liquor store filled the space.

 

With the initial success of Speed Coin Laundry, the always ambitious Patel is already dreaming of owning multiple laundromats someday. With reliable partners to assist him with every aspect of the process, he is confident he’ll achieve this goal.

 

“I already have the ideas and support system – it’s only a matter of time,” Patel adds.

 

 

Introduced in 2014, Store Owner of the Quarter recognizes Huebsch store owners who have excelled in entrepreneurism, technology adoption, innovation and superior customer and community service. Read Patel’s story, and others, at Huebsch.com/News/Store-Profiles.
