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.

How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

Technology & Teamwork Leave Roscoe Clients Looking Good

How Roscoe Achieved Next-Level Work Uniform Quality

At Roscoe, our state-of-the-art sorting system is an impressive piece of engineering. It automates the tracking of 3,000 garments an hour, sending, shirts, pants, jackets, and coats gliding along a system of overhead rails that can divert some items for repairs, while the rest speed along to be sorted by route, by customer and finally, by individual wearer.

The new system keeps garments perfectly spaced, preventing creases and wrinkles. It uses ultrahigh frequency (UHF) tags, which provide us – and our customers – same-day confirmation of every garment picked up for cleaning. Each garment is tracked from the day it is picked up to the day it is delivered, so we always know where your uniforms are.

Faster processing makes time for additional quality control, delivering garments ready for inspection one day sooner than under the previous sorting system. Here's how it works.

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.
