The Right Work Uniform Provider – Right From the Start

The Right Work Uniform Provider Right From the Start

The right work uniform program is a critical part of your business, and when it’s managed properly, it isn’t something that you have to spend a lot of time thinking about. It does what it’s supposed to do – building brand identity, keeping your employees safe and reflecting the professionalism of the job you do – without a lot of fuss or bother.

The wrong work uniform program has a way of showing up everywhere, sowing delay, aggravation and, eventually, chaos into every process. If you’ve experienced missing uniforms or uniforms in poor repair, you already know what the wrong work uniform provider looks like. But what does the right provider look like? How do you know if you switch that things will be any different?

Take Our Virtual Tour and See How We Keep Raising the Bar for Work Uniform Service

Take Our Virtual Tour

At Roscoe, we don’t throw around terms like "perfect bundles" and "state-of-the-art" lightly.

We've been perfecting our processes for decades, honing old-fashioned standards for customer service while staying at the forefront of a technological revolution that has provided us with unmatched speed, accuracy and efficiency.

We didn’t do it alone. Along the way, we’ve engaged the toughest safety, quality, and productivity consultants we could find to scrutinize our processes, hold us accountable, and set the bar higher for continuous improvement. We’ve earned our reputation for safety, for environmental responsibility, for hygiene standards and for customer service the only way that counts: by putting ourselves – sometimes literally – under the microscope and opening our processes to the highest standards of evaluation.

Roscoe Earns "Hygienically Clean" Certification

Roscoe Earns Hygienically Clean Certification

Any work uniform provider can tell you that their uniforms are clean.

But ordinary clean doesn't make the grade for industries involved in the production of food or health products. And it doesn't make the grade at Roscoe either.

We work with a lot of businesses in the food industry. Our processes adhere to federal hygiene standards known as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), which impose strict regulations for the removal of bacteria and the prevention of cross contamination among garments.

When the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) developed criteria for a new level of hygienic certification, we saw an opportunity to put our processes under the microscope and see if we could raise the bar even higher. And we did.

Textile Services Magazine, a publication of the uniform industry group TRSA, takes a behind-the-scenes look at Roscoe's new sorting system, detailing the company-wide effort behind our installation of the sleekly efficient German Kannegiesser ETECH system last year.

The story, which appears in the July/August issue, recounts the painstaking work done in preparation for the most modern sorting system in the industry, including modifications to our 100-year-old building and the dismantling of the old system – much of it done by our own team members, and all of it done without any interruption of service.
