BEACON FALLS, CT – Industry veteran Scott Clark has joined Lavatec Laundry Technology, Inc. as Sales Support Engineer. An equipment systems and energy conservation specialist, he will work with Lavatec management to support the operations and sales growth of the company and report to Keith Ware, vice president of sales.
Clark recently ended a 40-year career at Victor Kramer Company. A former partner and VP of Engineering Services, he was serving as a senior consultant. During his time there, Mr. Clark designed the renovation or new construction of over 75 institutional laundry facilities and worked with many notable clients throughout the U.S. and in the Middle East.
“With Lavatec’s significant growth, we were looking for an experienced laundry design specialist,” says Ware. “Someone with Scott’s talents and experience are very rare. Having learned that he might be available, we jumped at the chance to bring Scott into the Lavatec family. Having worked with him in a previous position, I knew of his skills and abilities and believed they would be a tremendous asset to our team.”
Clark will support the sales team by developing layouts, drawings and mechanical requirements necessary for the implementation and installation of Lavatec products. His established network also will help in working with laundry consultants outside the U.S. and Canada.
“This was a very good opportunity that I could not pass up,” said Clark. “The project work, engineering and planning, coupled with the opportunity to create and assist in developing pricing, layouts, and production support, will be a good challenge for me. I’d like to help Lavatec grow while supporting the team and satisfy ownership that they made the right decision to hire me.”
Clark has also written extensively on energy alternatives, facilities programming, systems integration, automation, production control systems, linen conservation and financial controls.
