BEACON FALLS, Conn. — Lavatec Laundry Technology Inc. (LLT) welcomed Lanier Bone as the new project and sales support engineer, according to a press release.

He will be based at the company’s corporate office in Beacon Falls, Conn., and will report to LLT President Mark Thrasher, stated the release.

Bone brings 17 years of industrial laundry services experience as a sales engineer and general manager, and his expertise with layout and design will play an important role in his new position with LLT, continued the release.

After serving as a general manager for companies since 2007, Bone is now returning to his original roots in the laundry business, starting his career as a sales engineer for Gartner Systems USA and later working at Jensen-Group USA, before then moving into GM positions with Crothall Laundry Services, Sodexo USA and most recently, Isothermal Textile Services, noted the release.

“Having worked in laundry management for several years, I’m planning to establish myself as a premier design engineer and help LLT strengthen their reputation for having the best layout and system solutions in the industry,” said Bone. “One of the first things I’ll be working on is to have the ability to model drawings in 3-D. It will give our customers and prospects a better visual representation to help bring a concept to reality.”
