BLC Textiles – Unaffected by Baltic Linen Merger

Posted May 17, 2017 at 5:17 pm

Amid the recent announcement that Sobel Westex has acquired Baltic Linen, executives at BLC Textiles, a company spun off from Baltic Linen in 2014, want to remind members of the linen, uniform and facility services industry that BLC is unaffected by the Baltic acquisition, according to a news release.

What’s more, BLC Textiles has secured its next generation of family ownership with the addition of Brian Greenberg, CFO, to the company. “Like many of our customers, BLC Textiles is a family-owned and operated company,” said Mark Lichter, chairman of BLC Textiles, Mineola, NY. “The addition and inclusion of the next generation ensures that we will maintain our core standards and philosophy in the future, as we enhance our focus and commitment to the textile rental industry.”

BLC has operated since 2014 as a separate entity, fully dedicated to the textile rental industry under the leadership of Mark Lichter. As for Baltic Linen, until its recent merger with Sobel Westex, Baltic had continued to operate in the hospitality, retail and cruise line industries under Frank Greenberg.

Bottom line? “The recent acquisition of Baltic Linen from Sobel Westex has no relation with the ownership or business interest of BLC Textiles,” the release said. BLC will exhibit at the Clean Show in booth 505.
