NEW ORLEANS — ADC (American Dryer Corp.) kicked off its Clean Show 2013 with a bam, hosting a customer appreciation party at Emeril’s New Orleans the night before the show opened. And to end the festive evening, CEO Joe Bazzinotti presented his company’s first ever Martin Slutsky Award to Hercules Corp.
Hercules is the largest family-owned laundry room outsource provider in the country, ADC says, and has been a leader in the New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania multi-housing markets for more than 50 years.
“Hercules has been a valued customer for over 30 years,” Bazzinotti says as he presents Adam May and Paul Finkelstein with the glass sculpture award. “A collaborative effort between our companies has resulted in innovative products that drive our industry forward.”
The high honor was designed to pay homage to ADC founder Martin Slutsky. ADC continues to build upon his philosophy by offering products and services that invest in new technology, seamless design and innovative capabilities.
Slutsky’s most renowned accomplishment was inventing the 30-pound stack dryer to help coin laundries double drying capabilities, increase sales and save space.
