CINCINNATI — Standard Textile’s Carl Rau, laundry market manager, recently retired after seven years with the company, and Cecil Lee, who has more than 25 years of laundry industry experience, was named his successor, the company reports.

“We hired Carl to expand our presence, enhance our reputation and grow our sales in the central/co-op marketplace,” says John Wintz, group vice president. “This area of our business continues to grow, and being successful in the laundry industry remains a priority for Standard Textile.”

Rau brought 35 years of laundry experience to Standard Textile, working previously as a general manager and in business development for a national laundry outsourcing company.

“We appreciate all that Carl has done over the years and wish him a successful retirement,” says Wintz. “We look forward to welcoming Cecil and appreciate the expertise he will provide to all of our valued customers in the laundry marketplace.”

A graduate of the University of Michigan and Central Michigan University, Lee has vast industry experience, having worked for a national laundry company and other laundries in Ohio, Michigan and New York, the company says.

“I am very excited about coming to work for Standard Textile,” says Lee. “The company is a premier manufacturer and supplier to the healthcare workplace. I look forward to continuing Carl’s great work and servicing our customer needs in the central/co-op marketplace.”
