I have been involved in the laundry industry since 1984, with experience in chemicals, coin laundry, mid-size equipment distribution and large-production laundry applications.
I'll never forget my first Clean Show. Dallas. I think it was 1987. A late-season snowstorm brought the city to a crawl. Our group's taxi from the airport to the Loews Anatole spun out on the freeway and ended up pointing in the opposite direction. That’s the good thing about Vegas: The heat is a bear, but you know what you are in for.
Clean for me this year is about touching base with old friends and learning about new technologies. I will be working with a great group of clients evaluating production equipment options. I am excited and eager to see what is new.
