ImageFIRST Acquires Ames Linen

ImageFIRST, a national provider of linen, laundry, and safety & hygiene services to the healthcare sector, with a hospitality division serving select markets, announced it has completed its acquisition of Ames Linen Service in New York, according to a news release .  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Ames Linen, founded in 1921, provides rental and laundry services for hospitality, food & beverage, and healthcare businesses throughout Upstate New York – serving several major markets such as Syracuse, Binghamton, Ithaca, and Utica – as well as the surrounding areas throughout the Finger Lakes region. The company is based in Cortland, NY.

“I could not think of a better fit for Ames Linen,” said Johanna Ames, “As we’ve been family-owned and operated for four generations, we wanted to continue with the same emphasis on community and relationships, making ImageFIRST an ideal choice.”

This transaction enables ImageFIRST to expand their service area in New York and Pennsylvania, creating more job opportunities in these regions. Existing customers of Ames Linen will now be serviced by ImageFIRST, and existing associates will be retained as a part of ImageFIRST.

“We’re enthusiastic about bringing this extraordinary company and their team into the ImageFIRST family,” said ImageFIRST President and CEO, Jim Cashman. “Our companies both share a dedication to our customers and our associates, which will inevitably lead to a successful integration into ImageFIRST.”
