A Century of Pride Shows in Our Work Uniform Service

A Century of Pride Shows in Our Work Uniform Service

When you read about companies on one of those “Best Places to Work” lists, you begin to see a common theme: employees who are engaged and passionate about their work. A culture that leaves employees feeling valued is a culture that instills not only a sense of purpose, but also a sense of pride in their work.

A Uniform Company Built on the Pride of a Job Done Well

"Take Pride" is the Roscoe motto, as well as the backbone of Roscoe's company culture, going back four generations, to when CEO Jim Buik’s grandfather, a Scottish immigrant, founded the company in 1921.

Works Uniforms for Packaging Manufacturer

When a multinational company tries you on for size and keeps coming back, you know you're doing something right.

At Roscoe, that means having a uniform rental program that our clients – big and small – can rely upon to provide high quality work uniforms kept in good condition and delivered on time, in the right quantity and with no surprise up-charges.

It means having a mat rental program that is reliable, cost-effective and worry free. It means being able to provide high-quality image apparel in a wide variety of products for promoting a client's brand.

Roscoe Outfits Reps with High Visibility Work Uniforms

High Visibility Work Uniforms

Over the next several weeks, Roscoe's route service representatives (RSRs) will begin wearing high visibility uniforms, including pants, shirts, shorts, and jackets.

Our RSRs spend a lot of time in potentially-hazardous environments like parking lots, loading docks and roadways. Although visibility uniforms are not required by law for the work and exposure that our RSRs are subject to, we at Roscoe would rather be safe than sorry when it comes to our team members. In addition to employee safety, an accident caused due to low visibility and not taking precautionary measures leaves your company open to OSHA fines and increased insurance premiums. Additionally, an accident that could have possibly been prevented can also affect employee morale.
