Why We are ISO Certified: How Quality Management Creates a Quality Work Uniform Service

Why We are ISO Certified

When we made the decision to adopt and hold ourselves accountable under the international system of quality management standards known as ISO 9001, we knew it wouldn't be easy.

But we also knew the value of putting ourselves to the test of third-party scrutiny of our processes. That is built into the culture at Roscoe. We seek out independent confirmation of our efforts wherever there is a credible organization to do it.

We've been able to grow and thrive for nearly 100 years – into our third generation of family ownership – in large part because we have never simply operated under our own instincts for best practices. We put ourselves under the scrutiny of third-party experts for safety, for environmental stewardship, for customer service and for hygienic processing.

Does Your Work Uniform Service Work as Hard as You Do?

At Roscoe, we help some of the hardest working people in the Chicago area do a better job. Our clients are food manufacturers, wholesalers, agricultural suppliers, automotive workers, printers, wholesalers, distributors, contractors and a whole lot of other businesses where a high-quality work uniform is an essential part of on-the-job safety and professionalism.

It's one part of a culture in which quality is never taken for granted, reinforced with training and a commitment to continuous improvement.

We wouldn't be doing our job if our commitment was any less than that of our customers.

We didn’t do it alone. Along the way, we’ve engaged the toughest safety, quality, and productivity consultants we could find to scrutinize our processes, hold us accountable, and set the bar higher for continuous improvement. We’ve earned our reputation for safety, for environmental responsibility, for hygiene standards and for customer service the only way that counts: by putting ourselves – sometimes literally – under the microscope and opening our processes to the highest standards of evaluation.
