ImageFIRST expansion in 2021 – eight laundry take-overs!

ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists recently announced the acquisition of Puget Sound Laundry Services, a division of Northwest Center Services, Seattle. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. According to the agreement, ImageFIRST will  buy and manage all laundry equipment and existing employees will continue to keep their jobs.

As part of the transaction, Northwest Center – a non-profit organisation dedicated to increasing employment opportunities for individuals of all abilities –  will continue to service government laundry contracts. This latest acquisition in the Pacific Northwest of the US can be seen as a vital step in the company’s geographic expansion which provides opportunities for enhanced service capabilities nationwide.

Building up its national coverage also supports the company’s National Accounts Division, as it continues to grow its service offerings to more multi-location accounts. Jim Cashman the firm’s president & CEO stated that while continuously exploring opportunities across the nation, it was discovered that blue-ribbon medical facilities in the Pacific Northwest were missing a qualitative linen and laundry provider. That is the reason why the company brought their service to these medical practices. This acquisition was the company’s eighth acquisition during 2021.
