KENNER, La. — To celebrate its 50th anniversary in the vended laundry market, Pellerin Milnor Corp. is holding a contest to find and replace the oldest operating Milnor “triple-loader” washer in North America.Milnor made its first industrial washers for the coin-op market in 1959. These machines — designed for 8-10 turns per day in commercial applications — are still offered today as Classic-style C4E units, along with the company’s newer line of cabinet-style washers.“Milnor Classic-style washers have successfully operated in self-serve laundries for decades,” says Gary Gauthier, national sales manager for Vended Laundries at Milnor. “We want to find the storeowner who has kept [his or her] vintage unit running longer than any other washer in the country and reward [him or her] with a new machine.”The contest is open through Sept. 30. The oldest coin-op washer submitted by a coin laundry owner will be replaced with a new Milnor washer from the manufacturer.
