MEET OUR TEAM

See below an autobiography of the President and CEO of our team at Ideal Linen, Paul Mohr, as well as the rest of the team within the Corporate Office of Ideal Linen in order to match a face with a name when you are conducting business with Ideal Linen.

LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER

Hello, my name is Paul Mohr and I am the President/CEO of Ideal Linen. Ideal Linen is proud to be a family-owned and operated business that has been passed down through my family for generations. This company was once a small new business in 1907, and we are excited to see the growing business that it has evolved into today. I have spent my entire life around this business; witnessing its evolution from a small laundry to the service company it is today. Although my college degree is in Business Administration from Nebraska Wesleyan University, I started in this business from the ground up. I began in the washroom, moved to running one of our routes, and from there on to various other positions within the company. I have built relationships with all members of this company, and have experienced the thrill of working within the linen and uniform service. Then finally, I made my way to become President/CEO of Ideal Linen.

Through the years, I have watched Ideal expand from five routes and 45 employees to 16 routes and 117 employees. Today, we serve the needs of our customer partners in the following areas:  all of Nebraska, certain parts in Colorado, Wyoming, and Kansas.

I am proud of what our family has built and of the valuable services we provide.

Take a look at our office team below, we feature their stunning photos as well as inspiring biographies. Get to know the Ideal Linen family one by one.

Account Manager

On a daily basis (sometimes hourly) I interface with our larger customers, whose needs can be varied and unpredictable. I help create their subsequent orders and communicate that information directly to our team for preparation. Facilitating a prompt and flexible system is critical to the success of these accounts. When not at work, you’ll usually find me on the golf course, either playing or teaching.

Tom Stanfield

Production Manager

My name is Tom Stanfield and I am currently the Production Manager for Ideal linen in Scottsbluff, NE. I come to Ideal with a military background in the United States army and an education from Sam Houston state university. After completing my Bachelor of Science degree I was recruited into the industrial linen field and have spent the last fifteen years in this industry. This career started in Texas but has also led me to Oklahoma and an extended stay in Florida before I reached Nebraska. Along the way, I have moved between Service and Production depending on the greatest area of need that my employers require.  This cross training allows me to have a greater understanding of the challenges that the Service Department face and keeps the focus on customer satisfaction, producing a superior product, and creating a work environment that benefits the staff and our customers.
