In 2011, Kevin oversaw the complete overhaul of the technology used in production from one of the most hazardous options to a method, system K4, which currently is revolutionizing the industry. With Kevin’s leadership, American Cleaners has risen to claim is rightful place as an industry leader while remaining the trusted neighborhood cleaners.
Founded in the early 80’s, American Cleaners has been a staple in the Austin community for decades. The Company uses a centralized production model with all production being done at one facility, 2400 E. Oltorf Street. This model allows for a more standardized level of quality throughout the Company. Recently, the Company underwent major renovations with regard to machine technology, replacing our ‘perc’ based system with the latest technology available, system K4. This new system gives American Cleaners the latest and best technology available while ensuring environmental safety. Using a new solvent, Solve-On, we are able to achieve the best results in the market while still adhering to our commitment to the community and the environment.
In 1998, Kevin had another change of heart when presented with an offer to become the plant manager of American Cleaners. His position has expanded over the years from just plant manager to general manager of the Company. Under his stewardship, the Company has seen itself grow from a local, mom and pop shop to a standard bearer within the Central Texas market.
We believe in integrity. To us, that means bringing open and honest conversation to the table. It means taking your best interests to heart. At American Cleaners Austin, you can rely on us to always focus on you.
