Mueller rejoins Lavatec as VP of Engineering

Beacon Falls, CT – October 24, 2018 – Eric Mueller has returned to Lavatec Laundry Technology, Inc. as Vice President of Engineering. Based in Cincinnati, he reports to Lavatec’s President Mark Thrasher.

Mueller has over 25 years experience in the industry. Originally hired by Cintas Corp., he became Lavatec’s Director of Engineering in 2005. During his time at Lavatec, he was responsible for customer equipment needs. He also handled on-site assessments to determine system design and managed the installation and engineering of equipment drawings using AutoCAD.

Most recently Mueller served as Senior Corporate Sales Engineer with Kemco Systems. In that position, he developed layout drawings for equipment installation and scope of work to meet customers' needs. In addition to coordinating turnkey installation for all mechanical, electric and construction trades, Mueller oversaw system upgrades and the retooling of operating laundries and food processing facilities. He also worked with Kemco’s engineering department to improve system design.

"I am thrilled to be back at Lavatec," remarked Mueller. "When I left, they were manufacturing the lowest cost of ownership machine in the marketplace. This reputation continues with the added benefit of greatly enhanced controls. I look forward to contributing to the further refinement of our product line, as well as to improving internal efficiencies to provide greater focus on our customers."
