Rebounding employment, particularly in the hospitality and food-service sectors, will be a boon to the industry. A greater number of employees means a greater need for uniform rental and laundering services. Furthermore, an anticipated rise in the number of insured people under healthcare reform will increase patient traffic in hospitals, pushing them to outsource more of their laundering services. At the same time, rising environmental regulations will likely cause operating costs to rise.
Companies in this industry supply laundered items, such as uniforms, gowns, coats, table linens, bed linens, towels, cleanroom apparel and treated mops to other various industries. These items are provided on a rental or contract basis. Typical clients include industrial, healthcare, food-service and hospitality establishments.
