Roscoe Team Heads to New Orleans to Explore Industry Advances

We are excited to be heading to the Big Easy this week for the Clean Show at the Morial Convention Center.  Billed as “the main event for the laundering, dry cleaning and textile services industry,” Clean 2019 provides an opportunity to learn about the latest products and trends in our industry.

At Roscoe, we're committed to keeping up with state-of-the-art practices in all aspects of our business, with a particular focus on customer service, environmental responsibility and continuous improvement.

The event, which runs June 19-23, will include opportunities for us to learn about advances in processes for using less water, among other environmentally focused practices.

“We’re interested in the latest technology around water re-use and filtration systems to reuse water and enhance sustainability,” says Roscoe President Jim Buik. As chairman of the industry trade organization, the Textile Rental Service Association (TRSA), Buik has made promoting good environmental practices throughout the industry a focus of his term.

Industry & Community Leadership: Beyond the Bottom Line

Roscoe Corporate Social Responsibility

At Roscoe, we've worked hard to earn our reputation for providing high quality work uniform rentals and unmatched customer service.

But behind the scenes, we work just as hard to be a good neighbor to our community, a responsible steward of the environment and a leader to the industry.

There's more to running a business than the bottom line. Especially when the business is one your family founded three generations back. We are building something we can be proud to leave to the next generation, and a place where our employees will be proud to work, now – and a decade from now. We want to be an asset to our community – the community where we go to work, where our customers reside and the same community that our team members call home.

We know that's not something that can be accomplished just by talking about it, so here's what we've been up to recently.

Earth Day & Work Uniform Rental Sustainability

Earth Day & Work Uniform Rental Sustainability

Now that Earth Day is upon us once again, we at The Roscoe Company have been reflecting on our long history of sustainability. In fact, offering work uniform and floor mat rental services is by itself a sustainable practice for any organization. We've also added other "green" equipment, work processes and products through the years and have been recognized by our industry as well as the governor's office in Illinois for our environmentally friendly efforts.

"This is not an easy thing to get," said Kevin O'Brien, director of the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC). "It takes a lot of work, there is a lot of screening and, frankly, there is a lot of competition for this award."
