97 reasons to celebrate

At Roscoe, we're celebrating 97 years in business today and that is a lot to celebrate.

Roscoe to Double Output with a New Work Uniform Sorting System

Roscoe to Double Work Uniform Laundering Output with a New Sorting System

In November 2017, Roscoe will go live with the implementation of a new work uniform sorting system known as the Kansort Simplex from Kannegiesser. The Kansort Simplex will allow us to double our output while using the same amount of labor that we currently have and providing us with additional time to inspect and prepare work uniforms for delivery.

The implementation of the Kansort Simplex represents the last phase of our modernization plan. Developed in 2007, our modernization plan represents our investment roadmap so that we can continue to deliver the best quality work uniform rental service in Chicago, northern Illinois, Northwest Indiana, and Southern Wisconsin.
