Headquartered in Richmond, VA, Caldwell & Gregory (“C&G”), the nation’s leading provider of value-based laundry service programs to the College, University and Multi-Housing markets, has announced its partnership with Washco Laundry Equipment, Inc.

C&G has served the laundry market for over 30 years through a commitment to providing superior service to customers and a fulfilling work environment for employees.  The partnership will allow WLE’s owner to retire while continuing to ensure an exceptional service experience for WLE’s clients and an outstanding workplace for its employees.

With Caldwell & Gregory’s innovative technology at their side, WLE’s operations will continue running smoothly for the foreseeable future.

Bob Dinnie, C&G’s President and CEO shared, “When WLE’s owner, John Mitchell, and I first met, it was clear we shared a similar vision regarding what is necessary to succeed in the laundry business in a way that includes employees and customers in that success as opposed to succeeding at their expense. When John shared he was looking for a like-minded partner that would allow him to retire with peace of mind, I knew we were the perfect fit. John has built an amazing business with talented people and it will be a sincere honor to carry on their legacy of excellence.”  

“WLE is a great fit for us geographically and philosophically, and we are excited to use our resources to bring their customers advanced support systems, expanded resources and enhanced technology. Clients from both companies will also benefit from the increased operational support that will result. Everybody wins!” Dinnie added. “The timing could not be better for John and C&G, and we are excited to continue a tradition of excellence and add new talented team members to the C&G family!”
