Unifirst to open new Industrial Laundry Facility in June

UniFirst Corp. – a provider of customized business uniform programs, facility service products, and first aid and safety services – announced the opening of its new 66,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art industrial laundry plant in Tennessee in June. According to the company, the new plant operates with the latest innovations in textile services technologies and automation.

The operation and its team of 80 employees will provide personalized service programs for uniforms and workwear, as well as facility service products such as floor mats and mops, wipers and towels, and restroom products. The company states that not only all employees from the old smaller facility have moved to the new location, but an increase in staff of approx. 7% is expected over the next few years to realize calculated growth rates. Apart from that the new operation is to be “greener”.

It will have greater energy efficiencies through investments such as heat reclaiming equipment, contemporary rooftop HVAC units, latest-generation machinery that requires fewer natural resources (gas, electric, water, and detergents) for the production and hygienic laundering of garments and textiles, and eco-conscious warehouse and office lighting.
