Arben International


Arben International was the US payee with the most Laundromat payments, receiving just over $1.8 million in 12 transactions from Kedassia Ltd. throughout 2013.

Arben specializes in the import and distribution of furniture and upholstery fabric into Russia and China. The firm was founded by Beno Sternlicht, an American entrepreneur and technology entrepreneur who died in 2012.

In 2011, Arben was allegedly involved in a scheme to jail a Russian competitor, Ruslan Telkov, for copyright infringement.

The company’s phone numbers were disconnected and it could not be reached for comment.
