Howard Herman celebrates 40 years with Laundrylux®

July 24, 2012–Inwood, NY– This year, industry veteran Howard Herman celebrates his 40th year with Laundrylux, distributor of Wascomat and Electrolux Professional laundry equipment. A true success story, Howard started out in the warehouse and worked his way up to President, learning every aspect of the business. Howard is well-respected throughout the laundry industry and serves on the Board of the Coin Laundry Association.

 “Howard has been a mentor to me and a guiding force at Laundrylux,” shares CEO Neal Milch. “Customers, distributors, and other industry players rely on his knowledge and constantly seek out his advice and guidance. He is quite possibly the most knowledgeable and competent person in his field today. He has tremendous dedication, drive, and a true commitment to the industry. We rely on his expertise and keen insight everyday.”

 To honor this very special occasion, Neal Milch threw a surprise party and the entire Laundrylux team celebrated in style at the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach, New York.  Industry pioneer Bernard Milch, now retired from Laundrylux, and his wife Lusia were in attendance, as well as Neal’s wife Lesley.  Howard’s wife of 43 years, Terry, and grown children Laurie and Harris, along with their spouses and Howard’s grandchildren also took part in the festivities. Cocktails and hors de oeuvres were served rooftop with dinner following in a beautiful seaside banquet hall.  Neal made a heart-felt speech and then Dan Goldman, long-time Laundrylux employee, did the roast!

 Neal Milch grew up in the business with Howard. “Howard is a true inspiration.  We would not be where we are today without Howard Herman. Here’s to another 40 years!”

 “I can’t believe how fast 40 years has flown by,” says Howard. “I still love being in the laundry business and I truly enjoy the work, the people, and the challenges we face everyday.  I was extremely touched that the Milch family, my family, and all the Laundrylux employees were there to celebrate with me. It was a terrific surprise and I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart.”

Crossover® Cee Tier 3 qualified for greatest energy savings

Crossover® Cee Tier 3 qualified for greatest energy savings

 

Crossover by Wascomat is CEE Tier III qualified for the highest level of energy efficiency.  There are three levels of CEE tiers, with the highest number (III) being the best for energy efficiency.  CEE (Consortium for Energy Efficiency) is a non-profit public benefits corporation that works to develop initiatives for its members (including U.S. and Canadian energy offices, utilities, research and environmental groups) to promote the manufacture and purchase of energy efficient products and services.

Crossover, the world’s first and only commercial-standard small chassis washer, was introduced in June 2011 after four years of intensive development. Crossover products include a 22+ lb. stand-alone washer, dryer and stacked washer & dryer combo, all engineered specifically for the demanding laundry environment.  Crossover is built to last 15,000+ cycles – more than double the life of appliance type front loaders and top loaders.

 

Neal Milch, CEO of Laundrylux, states, “The Crossover washer is a new class of washing machine that never existed before.  Crossover is superior in every way to other small chassis washers on the market.  It’s in a class by itself.  The Crossover washer has a 15,000 cycle machine life design, professional grade 8-point suspension system, 3 seals with heavy-duty SKF bearing assembly, and 300G high-speed extraction.  We also made sure it would finish each cycle – it doesn’t over-suds and it stays in balance. It’s perfect for route operators, small OPL operations, and coin laundries. It’s also a great compliment to our popular large capacity brands, Electrolux and Wascomat, since distributors today require a comprehensive portfolio of professional and commercial products to meet the demands of all market segments.”

“The positive response we’ve received since introducing Crossover has been tremendous,” says industry veteran and Laundrylux President Howard Herman. “Energy Star and CEE Tier III qualified, as well as ADA compliant, Crossovers are reliable, durable, and customers love them. After our laundry owners try them, they come back and buy more. “

 Kim Shady, Senior VP, OPL Sales for Laundrylux, couldn’t agree more. “Crossover is perfect for vended and non-vended applications. I am extremely impressed with its performance and energy efficiency. The Crossover’s semi-professional design bridges the quality gap left by household designs, while keeping the price below commercial style washers.  A perfect combination for smaller properties (with a household budget!) requiring professional washing results.”

 

“The demand for Crossovers has been incredible and rave reviews keep pouring in,” shares Laundrylux COO John Sabino. “For example, one store owner told us he has a Crossover washer right next to some other small chassis models, but his customers keep choosing Crossover even though it’s vended a little higher than the other double load models. Crossover looks bigger, the door is large which makes it easy to load and unload, it’s easy to use, and it lives up to its reputation. All of our store owners tell us how thrilled they are that Crossover completes the cycle even when the customer puts too much soap in. Crossover keeps their businesses up and running.”
