WILMINGTON, MA - UniFirst Corporation has been named an official contracted supplier for the Premier Healthcare Alliance, one of the largest national Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO) in the United States, with membership of more than 2,200 hospitals and 63,000-plus other healthcare organizations.
As is the case with most GPOs, Premier leverages its membership base to partner with select vendors to obtain the highest quality products and services at the best value possible. UniFirst is now one of only two companies eligible to supply Premier members with healthcare uniforms (unisex and ladies scrubs, pocketless polo shirts, scrub pants and slacks, lab coats, patient gowns, warm-up jackets), floor mats, mops, and microfiber cleaning products.
In selecting UniFirst as a contracted supplier, Premier noted UniFirst’s uncompromising commitment to total customer satisfaction and its coast-to-coast servicing imprint — both of which would be invaluable attributes for serving the apparel and facility service needs of its widespread member base. Premier also took note of the unwavering focus UniFirst places on overall quality by maintaining ISO certified manufacturing and distribution facilities, and by taking steps to ISO certify all of its laundry facilities in the U.S. and Canada.
UniFirst (NYSE: UNF), a North American leader in the supply and servicing of uniforms, workwear, and protective clothing, outfits more than 1.5 million workers each business day. The company's most popular brands include UniWeave®, SofTwill®, UniWear®, and Armorex FR®. UniFirst also offers Facility Service Programs including floor mats, mops, and restroom products.
