EAST BERLIN, Conn. — The board of directors of laundry equipment manufacturer EDRO Corp. reports that Scott Kirejczyk has been appointed managing director of the company.
He succeeds former CEO Joseph Futcher, who is no longer with EDRO, which thanks him for his service wishing the best for his future.
The company says Kirejczyk will be leading the third-generation-owned family business into an exciting new chapter of the iconic brand’s history.
“I’m truly excited about the future opportunities that lie ahead for EDRO and growing and continuing our proud tradition of manufacturing USA-made ‘Battleship Quality Laundry Equipment’ for many years to come,” says Kirejczyk.
Bringing a wealth of knowledge and an array of expertise in the laundry industry to the position, EDRO says Kirejczyk’s principal goal will be continuing to build a strong foundation for the business to facilitate future growth opportunities. This will include expanding the company’s range of commercial washer-extractors, tumbler dryers, and ozone systems into more commercial markets; developing and evolving the product range; improving operations; and reducing overall costs.
“Building on my grandfather’s and family’s legacies, I look forward to leveraging the core values of EDRO’s 73-year history, designing and building high-end, quality laundry products at competitive prices, providing unparalleled customer service, and promoting an engaging work environment for our employees for years to come,” he adds.
Kirejczyk’s management team includes four long-serving EDRO employees, Donald Price (Materials Manager), Kenneth Bridges (Electrical Engineering Manager), Robert Yorski (Chief Engineer), and David Burnham (Sales and Marketing Manager).
The company says the management team is highly motivated and fully committed to moving EDRO forward in 2020 and beyond.
