Our Story


Russell C. Lillard, Sr founded Superior Industrial Laundries, Inc. in June of 1982 after nearly 20 years in the industry with another firm. In those 35 years, we have seen tremendous growth and change. From one location in Star City, WV to our current location of corporate office and processing facility in Fairmont, WV and 4 satellite locations within the state of WV in Elkins, Wheeling, Martinsburg, and Charleston.


After Mr. Lillard’s passing in May of 2016, his sons Russell Jr. and Rodney owned and operated the company after having worked in the company since its beginning.

They continued to carry on the principles and personal contact with customers and employees that Mr. Lillard founded the company on. After Rodney’s passing in January of 2020, Russell Jr. continues to carry on the fundamentals and legacy his father created and brother helped maintain.

There are very few uniform suppliers in business today, that a customer can speak directly with ownership, giving Superior’s customers an added service.
