Women Are Leaders In Innovation

In the month of March, we celebrate Women’s History Month. Women bring a unique perspective and innovative solutions to industries wherever they work. At Kleen Kraft Services, and around the country, we wouldn’t be where we are today without the women in our lives. This month, we celebrate women around the country including the women that work in the industries that we serve with our uniform rental and facility product rental services.

Unisex Uniforms? Not at Kleen Kraft

Uniforms play many roles in your business. One of those roles includes keeping your employees safe and comfortable while they are on the job. In recent news, Walmart is undergoing a class-action lawsuit due to their refusal to provide uniforms designed for women, only offering one style of uncomfortable, ill-fitting garments to their delivery drivers. These female drivers were forced to purchase and launder their own garments, or else wear uncomfortable clothes provided by the business. At Kleen Kraft Services, all of our uniforms are made with high quality material in both men’s and women’s styles – for the same cost. When it comes to style and comfort, we know that one size does not fit all. No matter the industry, you will find garments for everyone.

Women Leaders In The Industries We Serve

We are proud to provide uniforms for a multitude of different industries, and we are proud to recognize that many stewards of these industries are women.

A Celebration for Four Decades

Women’s History Month’s origins started as a local celebration in Santa Rosa, California as “Women’s History Week” and has evolved into the national celebration that we see today. For over forty years, we have been celebrating women and we are proud to see so many women leading in their industries.
