Part 9: Clean Keeps Growing
In 1979, Al’s son Mark joined Clean to head up operations and Al’s daughter Ann, joined her brother nearly 20 years later. Ann & Mark take great pride in helping their customers achieve a high-level of professionalism.
A rapid rate of growth in the late 1970’s prompted Clean to reorganize its operations. A larger facility was purchased to meet the growing demand.
Mark, like his father, had even grander ambitions for his grandfather’s laundry business. Even now, with all the reorganization and building expansions, Clean was rapidly outgrowing all of its facilities and processing capabilities. It was very clear to Mark that there was only one way to solve the never ending need for capacity. The solution was a brand-new larger Clean centralized Service Center.
Building a Facility Equipped with the Most Efficient Processing Systems Available…
The first objective was to find a large enough parcel of land that would allow for expansion. It would have to be strategically located and have easy access to Interstate highways. This would allow the Clean fleet to access and service its customers quickly and efficiently.
In 1998, what is now the current home, Clean Uniforms and More! opened, consolidating all operations under one roof. Today, it’s one of the industry’s most technologically advanced and eco-friendly centralized service centers found anywhere in America.
Clean Service Center One of a Kind…
The Clean Service Center was specially designed for the most efficient thru-plant work flow. It features the latest automated computer driven garment conveying system. The result is faster, more efficient processing.
