What is the MLA?

Founded in 1959, the Multi-housing Laundry Association (MLA) is the North American trade association of operator and supplier companies providing professional laundry services for the multi-housing industry. MLA is the only national organization of its kind, and functions as a clearinghouse for new ideas within the industry.

MLA member companies can help make laundry rooms an amenity that attracts new residents and keeps current residents happy.

The mission of the Multi-housing Laundry Association is to work for a favorable legislative and regulatory climate for the industry, facilitate the exchange of technical and business information among members, and demonstrate the value of the industry to target markets.
