Technology & Teamwork Leave Roscoe Clients Looking Good

How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

At Roscoe, our state-of-the-art sorting system is an impressive piece of engineering. It automates the tracking of 3,000 garments an hour, sending, shirts, pants, jackets, and coats gliding along a system of overhead rails that can divert some items for repairs, while the rest speed along to be sorted by route, by customer and finally, by individual wearer.

The new system keeps garments perfectly spaced, preventing creases and wrinkles. It uses ultrahigh frequency (UHF) tags, which provide us – and our customers – same-day confirmation of every garment picked up for cleaning. Each garment is tracked from the day it is picked up to the day it is delivered, so we always know where your uniforms are.

Faster processing makes time for additional quality control, delivering garments ready for inspection one day sooner than under the previous sorting system. Here's how it works.

At Roscoe, QC Still Wears a Name Tag

The new Kannegiesser auto-sorting system allows us to have uniforms washed, finished, sorted and ready for delivery in one day.

That's time we've put back into the part of our customer service that takes place by hand: thorough quality inspections that ensure every garment goes out clean and pristine. These inspections answer the following questions:

  • Is the garment in good condition, with a good finish?
  • Are the colors fresh, the zippers working, the buttons in place and the emblems well affixed?
  • Are repairs needed?
  • Are there garments that need to be replaced?
  • Is the order complete?

That's the human touch, right where the human touch should be, with plenty of time to resolve issues and still get uniforms out to our customers on time.

The Roscoe Difference

We've invested in state-of-the-art technology because we're committed to continuous improvement. We are committed to providing the highest value to our customers by managing our labor costs, operating efficiently and using the finest equipment in the industry. But it's the Roscoe Team that makes it all happen. It's their diligence, their commitment and their belief in the importance of what they do that makes the Roscoe difference, and inspires us to Take Pride.

They know that it's the human touch that makes the difference for our customers as well, which is why we're committed to sending them out to work each day in a uniform that does its job as well as they do. If you don't look good, we don't look good.

Does Your Uniform Provider Make You Look Good?

If your work uniform provider isn't committed to making your employees look as good as their own, with a work uniform program that is both reliable and cost-effective, then you can do better. If you’re spending too much time managing your work uniform program, you can do better.

Find out why so many of our customers left the big national providers and became Roscoe customers instead.

They never looked better, and they never look back.
