August 9th is International Linen and Uniform Service Day. Never heard of it? It’s the day where we celebrate the industry that does so much for us!
August 9th, 1910 was a day that changed history, the day that Thor, the first electric powered washing machine was patented. This revolutionized the laundry industry, opening the door for commercialized linen and uniform businesses. Now, we have an industry that is a powerhouse. Hotels, Restaurants, Hospitals, and many other industries rely on uniform and linen services. Imagine a hotel without bedding, or towels. Restaurants without napkins, or protective chef clothing. Doctors without proper PPE. Uniform and linen services keeps these industries running and supporting their customers.
Now in 2022 there’s a huge uniform and linen industry supporting their customers. Here at City we process over 20,000 pounds of textiles per operating hour to get our customers the products they need. So they can do what they do best, managing their business and supporting their customers.
