The company has grown to become a respected and trusted partner to industrial laundries, hotels, healthcare providers and more.

“When we started Venus, we were embraced with a lot of love and support from this industry,” said Raj Patel, co-founder and president. “Customers, suppliers, employees and well-wishers were willing to give two immigrants a chance, an opportunity to realize the American Dream. We will forever be grateful.”

The release noted that the company was, “founded on the family values of hard work, trust and reliability, we bring this approach to all our relationships, to serve our customers with excellence and to provide exceptional product quality. Together, we succeed.”

Looking ahead, Venus plans to leverage its global and domestic supply chain to help customers navigate these uncertain times.
