Roscoe's Sorting System Featured in Textile Services Magazine

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.

Roscoe Implements New UHF Chips in All Customer Uniforms & Mats

Roscoe Implements New UHF Chips in All Customer Uniforms & Mats

As part of our multi-year modernization plan that started in 2009, we are replacing the RFID chips in all customer work uniforms and floor mats with ultra-high frequency (UHF) 900 MHz chips. These flexible and water-resistant chips will allow us to scan garments and mats more quickly allowing us to provide counts of merchandise picked up for cleaning on the same day it was picked up from customers.

What This Means for You

With the new UHF chips, we will be able to scan a complete soiled garment sling—up to 1,000 garments—in less then 10 seconds at an accuracy of 99.9%. This process will replace scanning each item individually, by hand.
