    LEADING THE WAY

    • LEED Certification

      • In 2011, we began operating the first LEED-certified laundry in the world in Milwaukee, WI. A second state-of-the-art, LEED-certified facility opened in Manteca, CA, in June 2014.

        Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building certification program that recognizes building strategies that save money and resources; have a positive impact on the health of their occupants; and promote renewable, clean energy. 

    • HLAC Certification

      • Since 2007, we have pursued voluntary accreditation for our laundry processing facilities from the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC). Today, nearly all of our facilities have received accreditation from the organization, which inspects and certifies laundries based on the highest standards for patient safety and infection prevention.

    • LEAN & Clean

      • We use the Lean Six Sigma problem-solving methodology to ensure our customers get the right linen at the right place at the right time in the right quantities – every time. Operational improvements have resulted in six-figure savings for our clients as we work together to reduce linen loss.​​
