Alsco Inc. Acquires UK Linen Supplier CLEAN


Alsco, a textile rental and laundry operation has announced the acquisition of Clean, a UK based company.

“Together, we will be much stronger than either CLEAN or Alsco would be alone,” Kevin and Robert Steiner, Co-CEOs of Alsco, said in a joint statement, “We look forward to working with CLEAN, assisting their progress and enjoying a great future together.”

Alsco, headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah has been a family owned company for four generations. It employs over 18,000 people, services more than 350,000 customers in 13 countries and currently operates 170 laundry plants worldwide.

Clean Linen Services Ltd, trading as CLEAN, was founded in 1886 as Maidenhead District Laundry Company. Today, CLEAN’s 1,400 employees provide service to over 5,500 customers across England.

“This is an excellent development for both CLEAN and Alsco. Over recent years, we have grown CLEAN to be the UK’s largest independent textile rental and laundry services company,” says Jason Miller, CEO of CLEAN. “Joining the Alsco family is great news for our customers and for all the employees and business partners who have worked so hard over the years to make CLEAN what it is today.”

Miller adds, “Like CLEAN they [Alsco] are a long-established family company with whom we share the same values and the cultural synergies between the two organizations are excellent. My management team and I are incredibly excited about the future and look forward to working with the team at Alsco. Under the ownership of Alsco, we now have the ability to continue our growth strategy and further enhance the service offerings that we provide to our customers.”
