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 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.

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.
