INWOOD, N.Y. — Cody Milch recently joined Laundrylux® as OPL Plus product manager, making him the third generation of the Milch family to work in the industry.
“I am delighted that Cody has joined the company,” says CEO Neal Milch, “and particularly pleased that we have initiated entry of the third generation into the commercial laundry business following myself and our founder Bernard Milch. Cody’s sister, Julia, may be joining, too, after completing her MBA.”
Cody Milch is playing a key role in Laundrylux’s PLUS business development. The company will “revolutionize the industry” when it introduces PLUS technology and new Generation 7 Wascomat and Electrolux coin models at the Clean Show next month in New Orleans, Neal Milch says.
“Laundrylux is a unique platform for the distribution, marketing, technical support, and financing of commercial products throughout North America,” says Cody Milch. “There is no independent company of comparable scope and strength like Laundrylux anywhere in the world. The major investments we have made in state-of-the-art ERP systems, professional sales training, greatly expanded sales staff, distributor development, and innovative technology are paying off — and I want to be an integral part of this long-term success story.”
Cody Milch will focus on the OPL market, which is experiencing what Laundrylux calls “rapid growth” under the leadership of Kim Shady, senior vice president of OPL and National Accounts.
“I’m delighted to have ‘the boss’ son’ on my team,” Shady says. “This is a wonderful endorsement of our strategy and our commitment to deploy whatever resources are necessary to drive high growth rates in OPL.
“I have no doubt that Cody, who has already run his own successful business for two years, will make an invaluable contribution to Laundrylux and the industry in the years ahead.”
