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.
