UniFirst Corporation, a North American leader in supply and servicing of custom business uniform and workwear, facility service programs, and first aid and safety products, last week announced it has signed an agreement to purchase Clean Uniform headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.
Founded in 1938, Clean is one of the largest independent uniform, workwear and facility service program providers in the United States with 11 locations covering Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma.
“Clean has built a highly respected business that provides quality service with a strong customer focus,” stated UniFirst CEO, Steven Sintros. “The addition of Clean into the UniFirst family will provide a foundation for us to deliver an enhanced service experience for our customers in the markets that they serve.”
Mr. Sintros continued, “UniFirst recognizes Clean’s strong service reputation in this market and is committed to retaining its employees, including its management, service and operations teams, as well as operating its facilities. We will be strategic and patient in the integration of the two businesses with a strong focus on customer and employee retention.”
The Board of Directors of UniFirst unanimously approved the transaction, which is expected to close subject to customary closing conditions and after receiving regulatory approval.
