Lights, Camera, Laundry! Roscoe Wins Industry Association Video Contest

Roscoe takes first place in the annual TRSA video contest for our virtual tour of our state-of-the-art facility.

Dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the industry, TRSA’s annual video contest is a lighthearted effort to highlight the important role videos can play in educating customers and prospects.
