Roscoe's Sorting System Featured in Textile Services Magazine

Roscoe's Sorting System Featured in Textile Services Magazine

Textile Services Magazine, a publication of the uniform industry group TRSA, takes a behind-the-scenes look at Roscoe's new sorting system, detailing the company-wide effort behind our installation of the sleekly efficient German Kannegiesser ETECH system last year.

The story, which appears in the July/August issue, recounts the painstaking work done in preparation for the most modern sorting system in the industry, including modifications to our 100-year-old building and the dismantling of the old system – much of it done by our own team members, and all of it done without any interruption of service.

Roscoe Customer Satisfaction Results at All-Time High

roscoe customer satisfaction results at all-time highr

At Roscoe, nothing makes us happier than hearing that our customers think we are doing a good job. But it's not something we take for granted. It's something we measure.

Because as nice as it is to hear about all the things we're doing right, you can't achieve continual improvement unless you know what you could be doing better.

That's the reason that year after year for the past 26 years, we've hired the professionals at Market Measurement Inc. to interview our customers to gauge satisfaction and identify potential opportunities for improvement.

And this year, we are proud to report that we made their job harder than ever: The majority of Roscoe customers surveyed could not think of a single area where we could improve.

Roscoe Family Picnic 2018: Over Too Soon

Roscoe Family Picnic 2018: Over Too Soon

We came, we ate, we conquered the marble run and then we ate some more, at the always delicious, always entertaining Roscoe annual family picnic at National Grove South on a perfect Chicago summer day.

Roscoe children of all ages welcomed our new clown "Strawberri" at the June 23 event. Strawberri's face painting and balloon making skills were in high demand.

"She had a very long line, from the time she arrived to the time she left," said Human Resources Team Leader Theresa Faulkner. "Everyone loved her."

Team Work & Taquitos

We also introduced a tricky new team-building exercise at this year's event, with the addition of the highly competitive marble game in which six-person teams competed to get a marble through three pieces of track into a cup. It was an exercise in cooperation and patience, but like all of our games, it was well rewarded.

Seeing is Believing: The Roscoe Plant Tour

seeing is believing: the roscoe plant tour

If you're looking for an alternative to the big national uniform providers, you probably have a pretty good idea of what you don't want in a work uniform provider.

Missing uniforms, chronic billing issues and spotty customer service practices drive customers away from their national providers on a regular basis.

But it's one thing to know you're getting unacceptable service and another to figure out how to make sure it doesn't happen again. How do you know your next provider won't leave you pulling your hair out over the same sloppy practices?
