Alliance Laundry Systems has won Marian University’s Business of the Year award for 2014. The company was one of six Wisconsin businesses and leaders recognised at the 28 October awards ceremony.

Mike Schoeb, Alliance CEO, accepted the award on behalf of the company. He said it was an honour to be recognised by the leading university in the community. "While Alliance’s global footprint continues to expand, we take great pride in telling customers that Ripon, Wisconsin is our home."

Marian University has been running its Business and Industry Awards programme for 33 years to recognise organisations and business leaders that have made a positive contribution to the community.

Jeffrey Reed, dean and professor at Marian University’s School of Business and Public Safety, said that Alliance deserved its award for its exceptional laundry equipment and service and for its ever-growing economic influence and dedication to customers and the community.
