Industry veteran Avner Wolanow, owner of Atlas Laundry, celebrates his birthday at Laundrylux

Long-time industry leader and Laundrylux distributor Avner Wolanow, owner of Atlas Laundry & Drycleaning in Dallas, celebrated his birthday while at Laundrylux headquarters in New York for a major Distributor Sales & Management Training event.  Howard Herman, President of Laundrylux, and Avner have known each other for more than 38 years, dating back to when Avner was VP of Sales for Laundrylux (known as Wascomat at that time).

“Avner is well-respected in the industry and it has been a real pleasure working with him all these years,” states Howard. “Avner opened his own successful business, Atlas Laundry, in 1980 and is a Wascomat and Electrolux Professional distributor for us.  He is also an experienced laundromat owner and has sold hundreds of successful coin laundries over the course of his career. I remember meeting him years ago when he first started working for us selling Wascomats,” recalls Howard. “We were just young kids, no grey hair yet!  It’s been terrific knowing him all these years, and I wish him many more birthdays to come.”
