Sohn Linen Service Celebrates 90 Years

Company celebration, open house, website launch mark occasion

LANSING, Mich. — Sohn Linen Service, one of Michigan’s oldest linen rental services, reports it celebrated 90 years of service to the Great Lakes State with a company celebration and open house. 

The company says the festivities were not only a tribute to its incredible journey but also marked the exciting launch of a new website, which encapsulates the evolution of the business and showcases its extensive range of products and services. 

From its humble beginnings in Lansing to becoming a leading linen rental service statewide, Sohn Linen Service says it has remained dedicated to serving restaurants and medical facilities from Detroit to Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor to Mount Pleasant and all the wonderful places between. 

The story of Sohn Linen Service is rooted in vision and dedication. In 1933, two brothers, Joe and Al Sohn, embarked on a journey that would shape the future of linen services in Michigan. Their laundry service, Sohn Bros, laid the foundation for what would become an enduring legacy. 

Four generations of Sohn family members have upheld the values of integrity, quality and customer satisfaction. 

Today, the company operates under the leadership of family member Jim Sohn, who continues to drive the business forward with a commitment to innovation and community engagement. 

As Sohn Linen Service looks back with pride on nine decades of success, it says it is also looking forward to what the future holds. 

With a firm belief in community involvement and customer-centric service, the team is enthusiastic about the opportunities that lie ahead. 

Sohn Linen Service is looking forward to another 90 years of growth and continuing to deliver the Purple Advantage to its valued customers.
