Roscoe Implements Cutting Edge Auto-Sorting System

When we powered up our new auto-sorting system at the beginning of this year, we ushered in a new era of work uniform rental excellence, capping a 10-year capital improvement plan that provides our customers with a level of service unmatched in the industry.

Thanks, Giving!

Dear Customers, Vendor Partners and Team Members,

We have so much to be thankful for at Roscoe in spite of losing Donald W. Buik, son of the founder and industry giant, a few months ago. Our customer satisfaction, as measured by an independent research organization, is at an all time high, growth has exceeded expectations and we enjoyed hosting family operators from across the nation as they toured our plant to provide valuable feedback to improve our operation. A number of process improvement and sustainability projects were completed, providing a strong foundation for the future.

Roscoe Team Members Unite to Provide Exceptional Service

Teamwork is vital for an operation to run smoothly and efficiently. Steve Jobs had a very interesting metaphor for teamwork. When he was younger he befriended an elderly neighbor who invited him to his garage one day to show him an old rock tumbler. The neighbor got some regular old ugly rocks and put them in the can with a little bit of liquid and grit powder, closed the can and told him to come back the next day. The can made quite the racket as the stones went around. When Jobs came back the next day the man opened the can and took out these amazingly beautiful polished rocks. Jobs goes on to say that, "through the team, through that group of incredibly talented people bumping up against each other, having arguments, having fights sometimes, making some noise, and working together they polish each other and they polish the ideas, and what comes out are these beautiful stones."  text
