August 9th is International Linen and Uniform Service Day! As your local uniform provider serving Los Angeles for over 70 years, we are excited to celebrate with professionals around the globe who provide clean uniforms, linens, and facility services to countless businesses.  Work uniforms maintained by a commercial laundry is an essential service for many industries; automotive uniforms give your employees a clean, professional look, in manufacturing flame resistant and enhanced visibility uniforms are critical for safety, and hygienically clean food processing uniforms keep customers healthy and the food supply safe. How have uniforms impacted your life?

How International Linen & Uniform Service Day Started 

On August 9, 1910, the first electric-powered washing machine was patented. It was named “Thor” and patented by Alva J. Fisher. To celebrate this pivotal point in laundry technology, this holiday was officially registered with the support of the Textile Rental Service Association (TRSA) along with many leading companies in the industry. 

Continuous Improvement 

Thankfully, we’ve moved forward since the initial electric-powered washing machine was invented. At Kleen Kraft, we value continuous improvement and are committed to staying on top of the latest industry developments, which is the reason we are members of the CSCNetwork and TRSA. We also take pride in being certified as a Small Business Enterprise by the State of California and certified as a Hygienically Clean Food Safety provider. 

As part of our commitment to continuous improvements, we take special efforts to ensure outstanding company culture – in fact, many of our employees have worked here for decades! One of our core principles is consistent delivery. We are committed to dependable service, so we designate a specific route service representative who will get to know you and your business’s uniform rental needs with scheduled weekly pickup and delivery. Our RSRs develop genuine relationships with everyone along their route.
