Roscoe CEO Tapped to Lead Industry Association

Roscoe CEO Jim Buik has long believed that quality control is built around discipline, collaboration and a shared commitment to continuous improvement and professionalism. Beyond his role as CEO, it’s an approach that Buik carries over into his role as an industry leader.

This month he steps in as 64th chairman of the TRSA, the national trade organization of the linen, uniform and facility services industry.

At Roscoe, we have deep ties to the TRSA, which has long helped to nurture industry leadership and collaboration.

Roscoe Customer Satisfaction Results at All-Time High

roscoe customer satisfaction results at all-time highr

At Roscoe, nothing makes us happier than hearing that our customers think we are doing a good job. But it's not something we take for granted. It's something we measure.

Because as nice as it is to hear about all the things we're doing right, you can't achieve continual improvement unless you know what you could be doing better.

That's the reason that year after year for the past 26 years, we've hired the professionals at Market Measurement Inc. to interview our customers to gauge satisfaction and identify potential opportunities for improvement.

And this year, we are proud to report that we made their job harder than ever: The majority of Roscoe customers surveyed could not think of a single area where we could improve.

Seeing is Believing: The Roscoe Plant Tour

seeing is believing: the roscoe plant tour

If you're looking for an alternative to the big national uniform providers, you probably have a pretty good idea of what you don't want in a work uniform provider.

Missing uniforms, chronic billing issues and spotty customer service practices drive customers away from their national providers on a regular basis.

But it's one thing to know you're getting unacceptable service and another to figure out how to make sure it doesn't happen again. How do you know your next provider won't leave you pulling your hair out over the same sloppy practices?

Industry & Community Leadership: Beyond the Bottom Line

Roscoe Corporate Social Responsibility

At Roscoe, we've worked hard to earn our reputation for providing high quality work uniform rentals and unmatched customer service.

But behind the scenes, we work just as hard to be a good neighbor to our community, a responsible steward of the environment and a leader to the industry.

There's more to running a business than the bottom line. Especially when the business is one your family founded three generations back. We are building something we can be proud to leave to the next generation, and a place where our employees will be proud to work, now – and a decade from now. We want to be an asset to our community – the community where we go to work, where our customers reside and the same community that our team members call home.

We know that's not something that can be accomplished just by talking about it, so here's what we've been up to recently.

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.
