Sohn Linen Service was founded in 1933 by Joe P. and Al J. Sohn. At that time, the business was known as Sohn Bros. Linen Service and was operated from a small laundry in North Lansing. In 1954, the name was changed to Sohn Linen Service.

In 1960, a new building was constructed on East Grand River Avenue in Lansing, with additions in 1976 and 1995.

Construction was completed in 2002 on our state-of-the-art distribution center and company offices on Wood Street in Lansing. Our production department is still located on East Grand River.
