Don Buik surrounded by three of his four children (Nancy, Jim & Chris)
Donald W. Buik had a remarkable career in the work uniforms & textile rental industry – just as his father, George C. Buik, he had a disproportional degree of influence because he rolled up his sleeves, got involved and shared what he learned with the industry.
My dad is 88 years old and has good days and bad days, but when my sister Christine brought him down to the uniform rental company plant and met my sister Nancy and I to tour the ever changing operation – he was beaming with pride!text

The arrival of spring brings warmer weather, brighter colors, longer days and sweeter smells. It is also a time to reflect on Roscoe's effect on the environment and efforts to keep it as beautiful as possible. The uniform services company has always been committed to conserving and recycling natural resources and we pride ourselves in our history of environmentally friendly laundering. Follow through the years with us!
In 1921, founder George Buik was a "gate waiter." He waited at factory gates, taking home workers' clothes to clean and bring them back early the next morning. In 1925, Buik revolutionized the industry and set up a foundation of sustainability by owning the clothes and renting them to workers.text
