Take Our Virtual Tour and See How We Keep Raising the Bar for Work Uniform Service

Take Our Virtual Tour

At Roscoe, we don’t throw around terms like "perfect bundles" and "state-of-the-art" lightly.

We've been perfecting our processes for decades, honing old-fashioned standards for customer service while staying at the forefront of a technological revolution that has provided us with unmatched speed, accuracy and efficiency.

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.

Roscoe Recertifies for ISO 9001:2015 with Internal Audit 

Roscoe has taken the first major step in recertifying for ISO 9001:2015 from ISO 9001:2008 by successfully conducting an internal audit.

Roscoe has been ISO 9001 certified since 2003 and is one of the few independent work uniform rental companies to have such a long commitment to quality and continuous improvement.

Internal Audit Planning & Execution

The internal ISO 9001 audit process starts with a plan. We update the audit checklist from previous years and identify what to review and by whom. Each Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) member was then assigned to an area on the production floor to learn how to do the job, identify process improvements and to evaluate safety and customer service issues. For example, our president was assigned to the wash area and our CFO was assigned to mats.
